Welcome to Wednesday on Wonderstrange where we talk about the things that are making our loins all a-tingle. This week I am lusting after Posca Pens.
OH MY GOD you guys, I have totally gone past lust. I am in love with these things, planning the wedding, and having their babies. I know they are not a new thing, but they are new to me… and they RULE. I have the extra fine point, 0.7 mm, and, while 0.7 mm is not really extra fine in my mind, it has a nice firm tip that does let you get pretty fine lines. It is about the same thickness as a Uniball Signo gel pen. It is a paint pen and is supposed to be able to write on just about anything, but it runs circles around Painters and Montana. CIRCLES.
Here check out these examples:
This is a painting with a black background. The pink is a Posca, and the orange is Painters.
That is supposed to be neon orange. SO NOT NEON.
I grabbed up all of my white paint pens and used them on the back of a watercolor pad – I think my Montana pen might be broken, because it doesn’t really like to suck up paint like it’s supposed to, but check out the comparison. I used a white Uniball Signo for comparison’s sake, and the Posca is nearly the same brightness!
I have only used two pens out of my collection of 12, but I am excited to see how the rest do!
How about you, do you use them? Do you love them? Are there cons that I don’t know about?
