The packaging & Demo using Derwent Inktense Blocks

I've already mentioned Inktense blocks, and in this blog post I thought I would add a video using some.

In fact I have now got a set of 72, so lots of colours to play with.  Before I get to the video, let me show you the packaging of these blocks...

They are packaged in plastic trays,  one layer above the other...

 A good way to keep them, but lifting the top set of colours can be a little difficult.

They come with a cardboard separator, I have glued the cardboard to the bottom of the top set, 
that keeps the plastic tray firm -

Then I glued a piece of ribbon to the cardboard
which then makes a helpful handle to lift them out with.

Here's my quick demo using some of these colours.

When the ink dried, I then added some extra details...

Fun and easy to use.

  2. Thanks for the demo, Ann! I was curious how to work with these sticks, they are very interesting!

    1. There are several ways to work with these, this was just one method. I also like to brush the stick directly for colour and then use that onto the paper.
