I love this white paint pen so much, I'm seriously thinking about ordering this box of twelve! I've bought 2 of these over the past year and I can't say enough about how great this opaque white, water-based pen works on dark paper. I even have doodled on rocks with these! I have several other colors that work equally well, but I find myself constantly reaching for the white one. I've never had one dry out on me.
Just remember to shake it well, before each use. And you need to "prime" the nib the first time you use it. I also do this, if it's been awhile since I used the pen. Always prime it on a scrap sheet of paper, since it may delivered a "blob" of white when pressing all the way down. But that's never a problem when writing normally with it.
The pen you see me use in this video is the White EXTRA FINE paint pen. You may see some called "fine point" which are MUCH thicker than these! If you ask me, there is nothing fine about the "fine point" paint pens. You may think you are getting more paint, since the pen is bigger, but if you want to write text or draw fine lines, these extra fine points are what you need. I made this video to show how the Copic Wide Marker works, and then realized it might be of interest to people looking for a good white pen, as well.
I've made a video showing how to prime Sharpie Paint Markers, a short clip of is found on my review of the Sanford Sharpie Extra-Fine Pastel Paint Pen, Assorted Colors or the full video shows examples of many types of Sharpie Paint including: fine vs. extra fine tip, metal tipped Pastel, felt tipped poster paint pens, plastic tipped metallic and glitter; all of which are Sharpie Water-Based Paint Markers/Pens.
--Sharpie brand pens are my top choice.
--Sharpie water-based pens seem to have fewer problems than Sharpie oil-based pens.
--Sharpie Poster-Paint pens are ALL water-based (despite some of the product descriptions on Amazon that say they're oil-based. You can double check this by taking a close look at the image: IF it is the correct image it will clearly say water-based).
--Sharpie Poster-Paint pens, especially in extra-fine tip, are my top choice. It's too bad the color choices are so much more limited, but if you're looking for a basic white and/or black extra-fine tip, these pens are excellent.
On a side note: Who knew purchasing paint pens could be so challenging? It's nearly impossible to get all the listings in one search due to Amazon's search engine. No matter how general or specific you search, different choices will show up and disappear. I suggest simply searching for paint pens, then filtering brand to BOTH Sharpie and Sanford for the best results.
Note added 11/3/11 - still using the same paint pen I bought in the beginning of August. It's awesome!! I've bought them in other colors. The white is my favorite because of all the problems I have had in the past with regular white pens. Fantastic product!!
The Sharpie Poster Paint Marker is above average in every area that makes us love paint pens. Yes, I've experienced all of the issues I've mentioned with the Sharpie brand, but the percentage of unusable pens has been very, very low. Especially in comparison to other brands. Since Sharpie puts out such an excellent marker, it would reason their paint pens would be good, too. However, I use several other brands of markers that are simply excellent - but their paint pen lines are just horrible. Definitely something I dread buying, hate using, and wouldn't recommend to anyone. I'm glad to say that, for whatever reason, Sharpie is different than those other brands - and puts out a paint pen I can recommend.
One little point I would like to clear up though, is about the ink.Read more ›
