Rated 4 out of 5 by Rooo Convenient for travel sketching
I wanted something with the intensity of inks but the ability to do shading. As I often work on both sides of the page in a small sketchbook it's important that the pigment doesn't smudge onto the facing page.
After working the drawing with a water brush, the image is permanent (doesn't smudge and stays put if I rework with the pencils again or with watercolour), which matches the way I prefer to work.
They are very convenient to carry and use: either the whole tin's worth for a weekend away, or just a few pencils for a reduced palette on a walk.
Three quarters of the pencils in the tin are lightfast: if they all were I'd give them 5 stars instead of 4.

Inktense pencils are like watercolour pencils but they are acrylic. This means that have the permanence and the intense colours of acrylic paints. They can be used in all sorts of ways but the best is to colour with them and then add a small amount of water with a fine paint brush. The permanence means they can be used not only on paper but on fabric or any other medium.
