Many colourists know all about Derwent's Inktense water-soluble pencils, but their watercolour range is a less commonly used. Find out all about these pencils and how they differ from Inktense below!
The barrels are fairly narrow and hexagonally shaped with a colour dipped end that is true to the core shade. Each pencil is dark blue in colour with a silver strip near the top. They are stamped with silver debossing which includes the brand name, the colour name and colour number. The pencils feel very light in the hand and have a not insubstantial 3.4mm lead which holds a point very well.
These are certainly the best watercolour pencils I have used in terms of saturation of colour and blendability with water. If you're after something super bright and vibrant you may be better served by Derwent Inktense, which is water-soluble ink rather than watercolour lead.
These pencils were given to me in exchange for an honest review. You can buy them with FREE UK DELIVERY on Cult Pens here.
