Pair our new Lightfast Paper with our Lightfast Pencils or our new Inktense Paper with our Inktense Pencils, Paint and Blocks, to bring out their best qualities to create long-lasting and vibrant works of art. 

Inktense Paper

Exceptional watercolour paper maximises colour vibrancy and withstands multiple techniques of Derwent Inktense.

Cold press - textured surface

Derwent Inktense paper optimises the premium performance of the Derwent Inktense range including pencils, blocks and paint. The cold press manufacturing process creates a lightly textured surface, perfect for enhanced control in watercolour techniques. The robust and absorbent surface can withstand multiple layers of Inktense without tearing fibres, creating vibrant permanent colours when dry.

Lightfast Paper

Exceptional archival paper maximises performance of Derwent 100% Lightfast pencils.

Hot press - smooth surface

Derwent Lightfast paper optimises the premium performance of the Derwent Lightfast pencil range. The hot press manufacturing process creates a smooth surface; suitable for the unique blending properties of oil-based Lightfast pencils. Extremely robust paper, with strong 100% cotton fibres and 300gsm weight, is ideal for multiple layering. Naturally acid free, artwork won't fade for up to 100 years when used with Derwent Lightfast pencils.
