New 18 wooden boxes!

Derwent is delighted to announce the introduction of a sleek new wooden gift box.

Capable of holding 18 Derwent fine art pencils the new box is available in 2 variants; select from a beautiful spectrum of 18 Derwent Coloursoft Pencils or a vibrant palette 18 Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Made from Maple, the sleek new wooden gift box has a smooth action sliding lid. The pencils are presented in a single layer which means all the pencils are on view at once making selecting the shade you want that much easier.

The new wooden box is available with either 18 Derwent Coloursoft pencils or 18 Derwent Inktense pencils. Coloursoft, the UK’s softest colour pencil, is one of Derwent’s newest colour pencils and its soft velvety core releases rich colour quickly making it perfect for mixing and blending. Derwent’s unique Inktense Pencil combines the vibrancy of ink with
the subtlety of pencil. Apply rich, deep dry colour then wash out to create a pure and translucent ink-like effect. Once dry Inktense is permanent and can be worked over without affecting the vivid colour underneath.

The new Derwent wooden boxes make ideal gifts for the enthusiastic amateur and dedicated professional alike.
