These chunky water-soluble ink blocks provide vibrant strokes of ink-like colour, bringing a new sense of freedom and colour to drawing and painting. When used dry, the blocks provide pure vibrant colour, but can also be completely washed out and transformed into a translucent ink-like paint which, when dry, can be worked over. They are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of creative effects. They can be used like pans of paint, dipped in water to apply colour directly to paper, used dry on wet paper for instant intense colour and more. They can also be used on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and other craft projects.
