More about Posca Pens

This week Jane looks in detail at the different sizes and uses of the best selling Posca Pens.

Earlier I did a blog on decorating a mug using posca pens, which I have included a picture at the end, so I thought I’d take a look at the Posca pens and the different sizes that are available, and the different surfaces they can be used on.

Posca pens are incredibly versatile, and can be used on many different surfaces. The pictures I’m using are from a leaflet we have in the shop for customers to take, this tells you all you need to know about these great pens.

POsca Pens Leaflet

Starting with Posca Pens

Posca pens are available in different nib sizes from fine to extra broad. This page of the leaflet shows the different sizes of the nibs, this will help you select the right size nib for the project you have in mind.

This page also shows how to activate the pen, first shack the pen well before stage 2. Next press down the nib several times and watch the paint flow down the nib. Once the nib has coloured with the paint you can create your design.

Materials on which they can be used

This page shows you what you can use the posca pens on. For instance you can create art on the walls of your home in a nursery for your children, on ceramic surfaces like mugs and plates and tiles. I have used them in card making and on acrylic paint. Fabric is another great surface to use and plain wooden beads.These pens are so versatile that there are endless possibilities.
