These opaque felt tip markers can write on a variety of surfaces including plastic, metal, wood, glass, plaster, canvas and more. Paint can be scraped off from nonporous surfaces like glass, etc. but will adhere permanently to porous surfaces such as wood, paper, etc. Water-based pigment ink is non-toxic, lightfast and waterproof. The ink won't bleed through paper (unlike alcohol-based markers) and is excellent for vibrant signs and craft work.

There was very minor change to the yellow that got lighter. Now, no artwork should ever be stored in direct sunlight, but this is a good way to test how your art will hold up over time. I have quality paints from other manufacturers such as Montana acrylic markers that held up a bit better over time. Overall the product is quality enough that I consider it useful for artists who will sell their work, however these 3 colors you may not want to use in artwork you know will be hung on a wall in a well lit room. I post all my tests on The Enchanted Gallery's lightfast testing page, including many brands of acrylic paint, india inks, watercolors and craft supplies. Hope this helps someone :)
On smooth surfaces will easily cover with one coat. On porous fiber-based surfaces like a pair of untreated canvas Vans I did, the color needed 2-3 coats as it would soak in. This is to be expected but these markers performed so well on everything else I used them on so I thought, "What the heck. Let's try it." Even on untreated canvas, they perform much better than any other paint markers (store brand and Sharpie) I purchased at Michael's. The other nice thing is that they get used every couple of weeks or so, but they somehow stay ready to write. Other paint markers I use have been drying up after the first use and getting them going again weeks later is almost impossible.
Durability has been pretty good so far. I scratched a piece of art really bad and was expecting a bit of damage. In the end, there was definitely a scratch there but it was understated for the blow it took and was easy to fix with the markers in about 15 seconds.
I was also able to use an aerosol can of clear coat over the finished artwork created with these pens and there were no chemical interactions, cracking, shrinking, etc. And that was a poorly prepped surface. I have gone out of my way to throw everything at these pens, but they perform at a really high level every time.
In the images I attached for reference, the markers were the only things used on the black surfaces of the sketchbook cover, headphones and top of the cycling shoes/cleats. On the bottom of the cleats, the marker work was covered with clear coat as added protection. The shoes were well used before I did the art, so the bottoms were already chewed up and the paint laid down really well and with tight lines. In the sketch on paper, the paint markers were used in combo with traditional brush markers. The painted marker parts were the highlights (works really great for that) and the light blue background graphic.
This is actually the best art/pen/paint product i've bought off amazon.
It GENUINELY exceeded my expectations; I kid you not.
Each pen was individually wrapped; you have to shake and then press down the tip a few times the first time you use them. They run super duper smoothly and the colors don't bleed; it dries in about five seconds so I don't have to worry about smudging. it looks and even feels exactly like high quality paint; I tried it out on paper as well as plastic and the effects are both amazing. Not to mention it didn't bleed through normal A4 paper- even after I traced layer after layer on top of each other.
That's another thing; you can draw on top of other colors and you cannot tell at all it was heavily layered. Proof is in the flowers I just "painted" below (they both have a plethora of mistakes in them but I had no trouble layering and covering them up/ repainting parts).
P.S. Uni's not kidding when they say "extra fine"; each marker is so thin and easy to draw with that my paintings are minuscule- yet detailed- and I can do different styles as well with them (see last 2pics for size reference). everybody who touches them and realizes it's painted asks me what brush I used. And then become crazy confused when I tell them I don't use one. HA.
P.P.S. Shout-out to the seller for shipping this so quickly; this arrived like a week before the ETA; I'm def sticking with this seller for Japanese art supplies in the future.
