Love the video! Please keep them coming. You are a wealth of information. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful ! I love how you add and blend. I never thought to slightly wet the paper first and can see that I have been missing an important step! Thanks for the video, Anna! Hugs!

Wow! You make that look so effortless!

Thank you! Can't wait to try out my pencils. Now if I could just find my craft desk.... Have a good one. Robin

Anna, what a pleasure to watch you watercolor. Thanks so much for sharing your video.

Hi Dee!
The cores of the pencils are made from the same thing the larger blocks are made from. So, think of the blocks as just larger (though shorter) woodless pencils. :) They can both be used to color directly onto the paper, or you can pull color from either of them with a brush, just as I did with the blocks in my video. Have FUN with your new goodies!

Cluck, cluck!

Great tutorial Anna!
Is there a big difference between the Inktense Pencils and the Inktense Color blocks? I just received a 72 piece set of Inktense Pencils and so far I love them. Great idea of washing the paper with water before coloring. I tried the SU Whisper White and it balled up almost immediately. I have been using the 80lb. Neenah Solar White and so far it works great as long as I do not keep going over and over the same spot. Please do a tutorial using your Inktense pencils. I would love to see it.
Hugs to ya...Dee in Oklahoma

Great tutorial! Thanks so much. I admire your coloring and enjoy seeing your technique.

I use the same technique with my water color pencils! I just use my water brush and touch it to the tip of the pencil. I do like your brush better than my thicker SU water brush. May have to look for a Niji. (And some Inktense color blocks.) Ahhh more TEMPTATION. I do need to stop lurking around here getting all these bad ideas. LOL. ;)

Hello Lori!
While I have loads of experience using SU re-inkers to watercolor, I cant speak to SUs watercolor paper. I dont have SU watercolor paper. If youre using SU watercolor paper (and not Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock), you will have better luck with the colors of the re-inkers flowing if you add water (just a very light wash) to the areas you want to color before adding the re-inker to the surface.


Cluck, cluck!

Anna - thanks so much for this video. It looked like the color from the Inktense Blocks just glided on the paper. Never used this paper or the blocks. Is it the paper that made the difference or the blocks? I'm used to using water-based ink and Stampin' Up paper. Your thoughts??
