What was in the box?

Derwent Inktense Pan Set

This travel paint set contains the unique Inktense formulation found in Derwent’s pencil and block ranges. But, unlike traditional watercolour, washes of the vivid paint can be applied without dissolving previously dried layers. Ideal for painting wherever inspiration hits, this set contains twelve removable and highly lightfast paint pans, a mini waterbrush, five mixing palettes and a handy sponge to help absorb water and pigments from your work.

Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle 2B

This water-soluble pencil is ideal for preliminary sketching using watercolour and also for complete watercolour techniques in graphite. The pigment of the break-resistant lead dissolves completely when brushed with water. Be aware of how heavy or where you make your marks as the pigment will be picked up when you start adding water and colour to your work. We suggest light initial sketching and erase anything you don’t need before you start. You can always go back and add detail with the pencil later.

Koh-I-Noor Extra Soft Kneadable Eraser

This kneadable eraser is extra soft to help lift graphite from the page. Tear off a small corner and work it between your fingers to warm it up. Then shape it to a point you like and press to the page. It’s more of a press and lift action, than a rub. They are too soft to erase like standard erasers, but the flexibility allows you to create fine points to only remove what you need. Test it out first before you start your challenge and see what affects you can create.

Botanical Ultra Smooth Watercolour Paper

This a 300gsm paper is made from 50% cotton and is bright white to really make the colours of your work pop. Its an non standard shape (106x210mm) with one deckled long edge, which is a rather nice feature and may help inspire a slightly different composition.
