What are Uni Posca Paint Pens?

Uni Posca Paint Pens are a water-based permanent marker (paint pen).

Made in Japan, they are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

They are quick drying and very stable. You can draw over each layer once dry and the colors will not blend. While the paint is still wet, you can belnd the colors as you would when painting.

They are permanent only when applied to porous surfaces and can be erased when applied to most smooth non-porous materials such as glass or steel.

To increase permanency and protection, you can apply a fixative varnish.
