How To Use Posca Pens

What Surfaces Will Posca Paint Pens Draw On To?

What Are Posca Paint Pens?

Uni Posca Paint Pens contain water based pigment paint in a pen format.  The colours are very opaque and vibrant with a matt finish. They can be used on light and dark surfaces.

Due to their incredibe opaqueness and covering power, once you let a colour dry, a new colour can be put over the top, completely covering the mistaken colour applied beforehand.

Posca Pens do not bleed or seep through the paper so you can write with Posca’s on a stack of papers, draw in sketchbooks, etc.

You can use Posca Paint Pens on sketches, drawings, paintings, canvas, fabrics, photographs & more.  You can also use Posca Pens on metal, glass and plastic even though the pigment ink is water-based.

Posca Pens are extremely versatile and come in a large range of colours and nib sizes so that there is a pen suitable for every job!

How Do I Activate A Posca Paint Pen?

Always Shake your Posca Paint Pens with the lid on before use.  When using a brand new Posca Pen for the first time you will need to get the paint to flow through to the nib.  On a piece of scrap paper, simply push the pen down onto the nib several times until the nib changes from white to the colour of the Posca Pen Ink.
