Our next Jump Start is brought to you by Derwent
We’ve been making pencils in Cumbria since 1832, which means that this year we are celebrating our 180th anniversary!
Derwent has a long and distinguished history, and we’re naturally very proud of it. At the same time, however, we have a reputation for innovative products that excite and inspire artists worldwide.
Our two newest products are beautiful painterly bars of colour; Art and Inktense Blocks.
The Artbar has a beautiful creamy consistency; these triangular bars of solid, highly pigmented colour offer the artist so much creative potential. They feel luxuriously smooth as they release consistently rich, deep pigment. The wax based bars are also completely water-soluble and dry marks almost seem to melt under your brush. Used either dry or wet, Artbar opens up a world of expressive mark making and rich opaque colour
The Inktense Blocks are 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, apply colour directly to wet or dry paper and use them on their side to cover large areas quickly.
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.
