Blocks are the perfect addition to your creative arsenal. Draw, paint, cut or grate with this versatile medium, to add a variety of effects to your artwork, complementary to those achieved with pencils or paint. Derwent have 2 sizes of blocks available: Blocks (slim, 8mm) and XL Blocks (chunky, 20mm).
Derwent XL Blocks are available in Inktense, Tinted Charcoal, Charcoal, Graphitint and Graphite formulations. These highly versatile, extra-large blocks can be used whole, in pieces or grated into powder for expressive marks, agile lines, texture and detail, even on large scale works. Each block contains a high volume of formula, equivalent to 8 pencils. The block format gives optimum in-hand control.
Derwent Blocks are available in Inktense only. Uniquely formulated in 72 vivid ink-like colours, that offer exceptional layering and are permanent when dry. Activate the vibrant pigments with water for painting applications or grate, shave or cut your blocks to achieve a myriad of effects.
