Ten top tips for using Inktense Blocks
1. Wash clean water over your board or paper before drawing with an Inktense Block for a rich, flowing line.
2. Use the edges and points of your Inktense Blocks for superb calligraphic strokes.
3. Scrape some Inktense pigment using a craft knife into clean water to create vivid inks.
4. Work light over dark when the underlying colour is dry for useful negative shapes and highlights.
5. Rub the flat side of your block over rough watercolour paper for instant texture.
6. Re-invigorate your work by using a decorator’s roller to apply Inktense ink.
7.Try mixing soft watercolour techniques with vibrant pastel style drawing.
8. Use an old toothbrush to flick Inktense ink onto your artwork. Be sure to use a piece of paper to mask any vulnerable areas.
9. Mix a little water with Inktense to create a strong ink before using a palette knife to paint.
10. Lay several colours down before sweeping a damp brush over the surface for instant blend ability. Wash clean water over your board or paper before drawing with an Inktense Block for a rich flowing line.
