Inktense... in blocks!

Just what are Derwent trying to do to me?!?

Mere days after my Coloursoft pencil investment, I see that Derwent are announcing their new products today! And what do we have? Only Inktense in Blocks!

I can only begin to imagine using these... and my head is buzzing with ideas! Can you imaging laying down huge swaves of ink-like rich colours on your Art Journal pages? Adding water and then working the layers over them? Ohhh I am dreaming of using them over a collage pieces and making vivid backgrounds too!

Details from the Derwent Website:-

Inktense Blocks

Vibrant strokes of ink-like colour!

These chunky water-soluble ink blocks bring a new sense of freedom and colour to your drawing and painting!

Dry Derwent Inktense delivers pure vibrant colour but when completely washed out it is transformed into a translucent ink-like paint which, when dry, can be worked over.

The blocks are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of creative effects. You can use them like pans of paint. Dip them in water and apply colour directly to the paper, use dry on their side of apply directly to wet paper for instant intense colour.

The blocks complement the Inktense range perfectly opening up an exciting world of endless possibilities. They can also be used on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and quilts.

I cannot wait to get my hands on these... and PLAY!
