DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
This oil-based paint marker can write on virtually any nonporous surface, including plastic, metal, glass, wood, stone, and more! Its glossy and opaque paint-based ink is AP Certified non-toxic, xylene-free, quick-drying, and water-, fade-, and abrasion-resistant. It can be used on light or dark papers, but on dark papers it will work best on glossy or coated papers. Some colors do not show up well on regular, non-coated dark papers.

I’ll second most of the previous reviewer’s comments, adding one additional remark. This pen works well if the writing surface is nonporous.
I purchased the pen in order to mark-up color aerial imagery printed from a variety of color printers/photocopiers (non-inkjet). The toner of the prints is sufficiently slick that white rollerball pens work poorly. I had hoped that the prints would be sufficiently nonporous for this pen (the toner polymer coats the surface of the prints completely). Unfortunately not – when using regular copier paper the ink absorbs quickly, disappearing almost entirely. This effect can be avoided by printing to transparency films or to glossy photo paper (the pen works well on both, but neither are options for this project). I found the pen to work poorly on non-glossy photo paper.
On nonporous surfaces, the line laid down by this pen is of reasonable opacity and uniformity after drying (drying quickly – after 5 seconds or so). Certainly good enough for the mark-up purpose I had in mind, although perhaps less than ideal for art projects (where perfect opacity and uniformity might be desired). For these reasons, I’ll give it four stars – reiterating that the rating only applies to nonporous writing surfaces.

Great for writing on plastic/metal, after it dries it provides a super permanent, very durable and abrasion resistant coating. Could be slightly more opaque though, and layering does not work (pen just dissolves previous writing instead of writing over).

I'm quite fond of the Sharpie poster paint markers, so I made the mistake of thinking these were the same, but with a thinner tip. Sadly, if you ever bought an oil-based marker with exceedingly thin and rapidly absorbed ink, this is another one of those. It works fine on non-porous surfaces, but that's it.
