Use them individually or mix colours together to create rich, subtle tones for bold, expressive drawings. The soft leads allow for quick lay down of vibrant colour, and they can be used dry or washed out with a little water to create a vivid yet translucent effect. Lift colour off of the end of the pencil to strengthen the tonality of your work. And, if you need to soften it, apply dry colour over drawn areas. Create texture by flicking colour off the end of the pencil using a wet brush.
Once dry the colour is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Inktense pencils are perfect for a diverse range of art, from Japanese Manga to vibrant silk painting, traditional watercolours to stunning botanical illustrations. A colour tab at the top of the pencil matches the core colour for easy identification. And, they’re pre-sharpened, so you can get to work right away!
The possibilities are endless, the results stunning.
