    Several colors are now available. In addition to the creative activities, I use it to touch up minor damage. E.g. wallpaper, paint cans, etc. Very easy and cheap.

  2. renske says:

    yes we have used them on stones and they worked great

  3. Stefanie says:

    Do these markers also work on stones?

  4. Priscilla De swart says:

    Can this also be used on windows as decoration for Sinterklaas, Christmas and New Year? Best regards

  5. Pl says:

    Can someone tell me whether you can also draw with it on textiles, in this case sports socks?

  6. Jacqueline Basset says:

    I bought the fabrics yesterday, but I can't get anything out of them... what am I doing wrong???

  7. Katrien says:

    They are really nice Els! At Action they now also have watercolor pens and aqua brushes. You put your own paint in it, so you can use any color you want.

  8. Katrien says:

    Very nice Els! At Action they now also have aqua brushes (watercolor pens) that you can use with watercolor yourself. Then you can use any color you want and you don't have to wait for new colors.

    I really wouldn't do that, no, then you should really go for other markers that say Chalkboard... you can eventually get rid of acrylic if you really have to... but there's a good chance you'll ruin your blackboard

    When you're done, put varnish on it,,,done?

  11. Marleen says:

    And when you bake the plates? Will the paint still come off?
    I have paint markers from artistro and the packaging states that you can bake plates, mugs, etc. in the oven to make the paint water-resistant. They can't go in the dishwasher yet, but you can still eat them.

    Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours after application. Then turn on the oven at 180 degrees and immediately place the plate in it. Leave it in for an hour. Then turn off the oven and let it cool with the plate still in it. I then let them rest for another 24 hours before using them.

    I'm curious if this also works with the paint markers of the action.

    Good review! Just picked up a set to try them out. My kids like to draw on stones and now always use my Poscas. That doesn't always make me very happy... So if these cover just as well, we will all be happy here at home again 😉

  13. Nikki says:

    Any idea if this works on a blackboard? Normally I use chalk, but this seems much nicer! It just has to be removable...

  14. Poser says:

    I've been using paint markers for almost everything for years. In my sketchbooks for details about ink and on canvas in combination with spray can and airbrush. I generally use molotows one4all and uni poscas. These markers normally cost 3-8 euros each (varies depending on the thickness of the markers). Today I also came across these markers at the promotion and immediately took all 8 boxes that were still there. I was positively surprised about the quality because cheap paint markers are usually too watery. In the future I hope there will be more colors, but especially fine points and even thicker ones. In any case, I can recommend this to every (graffiti) artist! This is a great product to experiment with, especially for people who have never used paint markers.

      What a very nice reaction! Nice to read that you are so happy with it :-). Secretly I also hope for new colors. Fingers crossed. Have fun crafting :-).

  15. Els says:

    Press the tip of the paint pen a few times :-).

  16. Noa says:

    Maybe I'm really stupid, but how does it work... and how do I pump the paint so I can use it?

  17. Mel says:

    Ooh nice nice! Idk, back to Action again. I don't know how many times I go there haha. And I already did some fun things right away. It's wonderful to be so creative.

  18. MarjonS says:

    What great tips! Very nice, thanks for the review. I'm going to Action tomorrow?

  19. M.Th. says:

    Beautiful applications, Els, and so many different ones!

  20. I really like those signs <3
    I'll definitely see if I can buy them too 🙂

  21. Yova says:

    What cool types of paint markers. I didn't know they have it. Very nice job making things.

  22. Poohbeer says:

    Wow, those are very beautiful! You make fun things with it!
    Yes, more colors are welcome, I understand that! They look like Poscas.
    So back to Action, recently went for the embossing set, also very cool.
    Fortunately there were.
    Maybe there will be other colors? Sometimes that happens, just like those hand lettering markers, there were always only black ones, now largely still. I found a metallic pink and a gold one several times, even just 1 set...
    Go there often and take a good look.

    Thanks again for your information, we will look into it!

    Greetings Petra

  23. You did such a nice job again!! I think I'll use those for the cork coasters from Ikea?

  24. Connie says:

    How nice everyone. I'm tempted to buy these markers...but I already have so much stuff. The storage jars are nice for the kitchen.

  25. Yolanda says:

    Oh, I've been looking for these markers for a long time! But actually it can also be used outside. But if I read it correctly, they are not water resistant?

  26. Simone says:

    That all looks so nice! I also really like those coasters!

  27. Krista Steenbergen says:

    Thank you for your super nice examples! I was wondering, would the paint stay on nicely if you baked the plates in the oven? Just like with porcelain markers...

  28. Jacqueline Roumen says:

    My fingers are already itching to make something with these markers, you have made nice examples!?

  29. Diana says:

    How nice that you show all these examples, it automatically gives me more ideas.
    you made me very excited

  30. Carolien says:

    What great fun! I haven't seen them yet, but I'll definitely check them out. Your storage jars turned out super nice!

  31. Romy says:

    Wow, these markers are so nice and they cover really well! You have made incredibly beautiful things with it. I think I'll run to Action tomorrow after work to get them 🙂

  32. Jenn says:

    That looks nice! I'll see if they have them here too.

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
