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. I know there is confusion about whether these pens (or markers) contain oil-, or water-based ink. The answer is both. The old Sharpie Poster Paint Markers used to be made with oil-based ink (or paint) - and they were AWESOME. Every creative person I know agrees on that. The oil-based markers would write on absolutely anything - the ink was fantastic and would last forever. The only issue with that ink was if you made a mistake - you couldn't just get rid of it. Chemicals were required to clean up accidents - and I will admit to ruining many projects because I wasn't able to completely remove mistakes I had made. That didn't make the paint markers bad - quite the opposite. I enjoyed using those and always knew I could count on them. Several years ago, Sharpie was going to discontinue the line of paint pens - to the dismay of artists everywhere. I'm not familiar with any details, but I know that Sharpie re-released the paint pens, but this time with water-based ink. My guess is the consumer tilt toward more eco-friendly, non-toxic products caused Sharpie to re-examine their formulation, which is too bad. I miss the old oil-based ink, but realize water-based is "better" for people and the environment. It just bums me out that I can't find the good ol' markers anymore. (You could make a sign with the oil-based markers and hang it outside...it didn't matter if it rained, sleeted, or snowed, nothing was going to hurt the marks you had made. That is totally not the case with the water-based formulation.)
I love these paint pens and can't imagine not having them available - I use them almost daily. They are the first paint pens I reach for. I own waaay too many of them, but I couldn't get rid of any. That isn't the case with other paint markers I have. As long as you are aware of the possible caveats of paint markers, I believe you will find these to be excellent addition to your pen repertoire. I love all the tip sizes: extra fine, fine, medium, and extra bold...but extra fine is my favorite. I hope these work as well for you!
--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.
