The 72 blocks in the Derwent Inktense range have colours that are vibrant and pigment rich. You can use them for either drawing and painting on paper or on fabric.
Use the handy online tool below to find each block’s name, block number and lightfast rating. Also see a colour swatch for each of the blocks.
You’ll find the interactive colour chart for the Derwent Inktense blocks helpful as you can find a block’s detail without having to physically search through your blocks, or your colour charts. This will save you lots of time and frustration.
