Surf Boards

Posca Pen Art Ideas

Posca Pens are a great way of customizing your surfboard. You can turn a boring plain surfboard into a work of art.

If you decide that you want a new look for your surfboard, this is how you do it.

· Scrape off all the wax from your board

· Use acetone and a paper towel to get rid of any remaining wax.

· Sand the surfboard using sandpaper 200 grit or higher. This process provides a rougher surface so that the paint can grip the surface.

· Sketch out your design with a pencil

· Use your Posca Pens to create your unique design.

· Wait for the paint to dry overnight

· Spray a few coats of clear varnish over the paintwork to protect it

Shirts & Jackets

You can add layers of color using Posca and create very intricate designs if you want.

Once you have finished your design, let it dry naturally and then use either a hair dryer or iron to fix the design.

Iron on the reverse of the design, and if the material is flimsy, consider using greaseproof paper as a barrier.


Posca and Mugs

Using your Posca Paints, you can turn any plain old cup into a stunning customized design.

If you are planning to use the mug for drinks, it is best to keep the design well clear of where the lips meet the cup.

One idea is to place a cellophane bag of sweets inside the mug to make a great personalized gift.
