Derwent Inktense Blocks are highly versatile, water-soluble pigments which create a vivid ink- like medium when combined with a little water. Once dried after application, Inktense becomes permanent, which enables you to work over the dry areas without affecting the original layers of colour. These satisfyingly chunky blocks produce vibrant and saturated colours, that are extremely adaptable and can be used for a wide range of creative effects. You can use them like pans of paint with a wet brush to gather the pigment or dip the blocks directly into water to apply a saturated colour to paper. They can also be used dry or applied to wet-washed paper for instantly vibrant and intense colour. - How did you use yours?

It's a Blackliner, not a Fineliner! We love this fine...errr Blackliner... super smooth consistent ink flow with a dark line that doesn't shift with water or marker overlay. One of the best we've ever included? We will let you decide, but we certainly think it's in the top 5. Did you like the 0.4mm nib? Too thick? Not thick enough? Either way, it's a great pen to add to your collection.
Another amazing use of March's limited colour palette by one of our Scrawlr's. This time it's @llileo_ who has made the most of these colours and created this wonderful artwork. It's interesting to see the different interpretations of an artists imagination. Some (like this one ) are soft, dreamy and inviting, whereas others are more jagged and hectic. Is your #imaginarium a calm and relaxed place, or a hectic jumble of ideas and inspiration?
The contents of the March ScrawlrBox, which asked you to explore your imagination with these #artsupplies and create your own #imaginarium - We loved seeing all the creative ways you interpreted this challenge and how wonderfully strange your imaginations really are.
