Q: Is it 4mm soft lead core

submitted by Jackie - 3 years ago
  • A: Not sure what you mean by that... the diameter of the lead is about 4mm, but it’s not “soft lead” because it’s ink. I can tell you that using them feels kind of like colored pencil mixed with an oil pastel?

    submitted byrmorgan13 - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes, the inner core has a diameter of about 4 mm and can be sharpened to a point. The overall barrel width of the pencil including the wood encasing measures about 8 mm. The core contains a wax-based, highly water-soluble pigment with a soft texture. This watercolor product has a unique formula that when blended with a wet brush produces the appearance of an ink wash.

Derwent Inktense Pencils, Set of 12 #Buzzagent received this sample. I love these very versatile pencils! They work like pencil and inky water color! Very vibrant and true to their color. Used a water drenched paint brush against the pencil to make wonderful art!! Very convenient to use!

A juxtaposition of color and texture

I absolutely loved working with the Derwent Inktense colored pencils I was chosen to review. The pencils lay down a muted textural richness unlike any other watercolor pencil I have ever used. I could have stopped there however, the addition of a little water on the tip of a brush makes the color bloom! The color is brilliant with incredible depth. I chose to keep some of the texture as I built my layers. I could have gone on forever building layer upon layer. A Very satisfying experience indeed.

Versatile Colored Pencils

The Derwent Inktense Pencils are great at coloring your artwork and also doing watercolors. I like to use these on thicker paper and on cloth. I was able to make many pieces with these inktense pencils. The colors are vibrant and sharp. I was very pleased with how the colors look and especially when I added water. I do think it needs some labeling so the colors are in order and a separation between the pencils so they don't fall out. I like the tin case that makes it easy and portable to carrying around in my bag. I think this is a great set for someone who likes making art or even dabble in it.

I love these colored pencils! They're smooth and the colors are so pigmented. I've never gravitated toward pencils, I didnt think they could achieve any look I was after, but I stand corrected. I do wish the container I have included a white pencil for blending purposes (I had to use another brand for the white) but the colors blended very well.

These are for wet or dry, which is the best thing ever! So portable! This is a great set of the basic colors, easily blended into a magnitude of shades. They have a buttery smooth texture, no skips or breaking bits as you go along. They sharpen easily and again, so smoothly. The quality is top notch, I really enjoy them.

I can't stop creating with my Derwent Inktense pencils!

These pencils are unlike anything I've ever used, but they feel like they were made for me! I can't choose just one medium to focus on, I want to do them all. My main focus is on Creative Journaling, and I use watercolors, and colored pencils - both regular, and watercolor, and I own just about every pen known to man! I got to sample these pencils from BzzAgent in exchange for an honest review, and I was so excited!! While I was waiting on shipping, I lived on the Derwent website/blog to get an idea of what Inktense was, and could be used for - the possibilities are endless! They can be used as regular colored pencils, and like watercolor pencils, but once you get the color wet, - it's permanent. It's not as scary as it sounds! I told you I can't choose a medium, but I never said I was good at any of them - so I was scared! So, just like with any new art supply, I did swatches, and practiced blending, while watching videos, and I started to feel a lot less anxious! I have a couple projects that I want to share so you can see how vibrant the colors are and to show different ways the Inktense can be used. I worked on a page in my art journal and used multiple techniques in multiple layers. There wasn't anything I tried that the pencils couldn't do. Dry on dry, dry on wet, wet on dry, wet on wet - I loved seeing how they reacted! The first layer was wet on wet just to get a base down. After I wet the page, I used a brush to wet the pencil, and just dotted the brush on the page. They blend so beautifully! I drew some, and went over it with a wet brush, and I painted some on top of that. I also made a color spray, and used my favorite fling and splatter technique with different brushes. I tried it all! I think the pic I've showed here is going to be the final project. I found a shaving cream technique on the Derwent website, and lost an entire day making things!! I just want you to see how well they explained it, because my picture looks pretty close to theirs. You don't have to be a seasoned artist to use these - you just feel like one! I tried other colors, and tried it on a shirt, too! Make sure to check their site if you need inspiration. On all the blogs, websites, and YouTube, I found that the main thing commenters would ask was about Inktense on fabric. There is a lot of great stuff out there, people are so creative. I have been working on some a little different... I am distressing a shirt. I started by just doodling the Green Day grenade on the bottom, and went over it with a paintbrush and water. I wanted to keep drawing so I did the anarchy symbol, and another band logo and threw it in the wash. I didn't wipe off any shavings or little pieces, I left it just like it was, and loved the outcome. That's when I decided to distress the entire shirt. I made another spray with a different bottle, and that gave the rings you see, there is a lot of fling & splatter, too. I haven't decided on the main image (Social Distortion logo), but the pic is of the bottom edge, and it's been through three washings! I'm going to add this review on my blog, and I'll add more pictures there. I did everything here, and more, with the set of 12 pencils! As soon as I can afford it, I'm upgrading to a larger set! I thought they were expensive at first, but after using them, I understand why. They are worth every penny. I just can't stop! My review is late, and my house needs dusting, but I want to find something else to draw on! I can't wait to try everything else by Derwent!! The website shows products I didn't know I HAD to have! This company knows artists, and how they think. I will be checking the Derwent brand first every time I need something, because it would be stupid to waste my money somewhere else just to be disappointed. I'm a customer for life! I also want to thank BzzAgent for giving me the opportunity to try these! I didn't know anything about them, but now I can't wait to get more!

The Inktense Ink pencils from Derwent, are truly a step or two above most brands of which I have used. The quality is evident from the first stroke, and the colors represented a vibrant and vivid. The application remains durable and long lasting. These are not your average 'colored pencils'. So thankful for the chance to use this wonderful product

I've done a couple of little drawings/paintings with these. There is a bit of a learning curve as I've never used this type of product but I am getting the hang of the inktense pencils.

Stunning Colors

I recieved the set of 12 Derwent Inktense Pencils free in exchange for my honest review. I like to draw occasionally. The pencils at first just seem like regular colored pencils. But when you add a little water the colors are bold and beautiful. I like mixing the bold colors with the more subtle colors for a stunning effect. You do have to wait until they are dry or they may bleed a little. But if they are completely dry they won't bleed at all. What a fun product to have to create works of art. They are a little pricey but they will last a long time.

These are great. Good for that water color effect without having to use your water color palette. Also you can place your colors where it needs to be. Best to use a brush though.

Honest review, brilliance

So to start off and for the 'tldr': These InkTense pencils are awesome. To elaborate: whether shading or trying to get bold, dark lines, these pencils leave a beautiful mark. Saturated and deep in color when using the tip against the paper, but also smooth and vibrant when shading. This is definitely for those that want the colors of their art to pop off the page. I've used some other brands, mostly those from big box stores. And they pale (quite literally) in comparison to these pencils. Next time I'm in the market for art supplies, I'll definitely look to the Derwent first!

colors go on smoothly and blend well

I have used Prismacolor pencils in the past and haven't found any other pencils that I liked as much in the same price range until now. The Inktense pencils colored very smoothly and I was able to blend colors without issue. The colors are very vibrant, too! My one complaint is that your hand will pick up the colors while you are working, causing it to smudge on the paper but I solved this by making sure my hand rested on a piece of paper while I worked. All in all I really like these pencils!

Tho expensive, I love my set of 72 derwent inktense pencils! Beautiful on paper or a variety of fabrics (tho I'm new and need lots of practice on fabric!). Only current concerns that many of the 72, especially darker colors, read the same...and my favorite colors are sure to go quickly and, as of yet- are not available to purchase separately. Finally, there's not much inspirational info or tutorials on the Derwent website available. It'd be awesome to have more on the the use of this fine product and how to best use them.
