My experimenting has just begun. I have found the colors lovely, dry and wet. They are versatile and only wish the colors in the set had a greater variety.

Product Questions and Answers

How do they adhere to nonporous surfaces?

- Asked by L.G. on 17-Oct-12

The Derwent Inktense Blocks are primarily used with water on porous surfaces (paper, canvas, etc.). One could possibly use them on non-porous surfaces, but how well the product would adhere depends on how much tooth the artist gives the material, such as sanding glass, for example.
