Uni Posca paint markers (affiliate link) are amazing marker pens that use actual water-based paint and can be used on virtually any surface. They are a must-have for anyone who loves to create! Poscas are super versatile and come in a variety of sizes, colors and nib shapes. They can be used on paper, wood, canvas, glass, walls and more! They are also great for lettering, graphs and charts. The paint in Poscas dries opaque and is odorless and fade resistant. It can be layered and blended while still wet and can be manipulated with water, just like acrylics.
Currently, Posca markers are available in 55 colors (in the US) or 66 (elsewhere). The color ranges vary slightly between nib types and sets. For example, the smallest nib size is the PC-3M fine tip while the medium is the PC-5M and the largest – the 17K – has a chisel tip. The smaller nibs are best for fine artists and illustrators, while graffiti and mural artists tend to prefer the broader tips.
You can find these pens online and at most art supply stores. They are a bit more expensive than traditional markers, but they last a lot longer and are better quality. They are also easier to use than other water-based markers and are good for beginners who want to try their hand at painting. They can be used on almost any type of paper, card, wood, glass and even chalkboards! You can even heat set them onto fabric. The markers are easy to clean, but you should shake them before each use to get the paint flowing. They are waterproof when dry and can be removed from non-porous or sealed surfaces with an ammonia-based cleaner.
