  • Paint pens

    Does anyone ever use acrylic paint pens when painting your carvings?

    I use Coloring Pencils with my Woodburning Pieces sometimes. Ifound that wipe on Poly isn't a good idea for sealing Pieces. It takes the color off . Must use Spray type Finish . Merle

      I've tried but the tips are never pointed enough to accomplish what I'm trying to achieve. Even the Fine Point Sharpie's don't work for me. If I do use a pen I use a sharpie with a very fine point.

        I've been using some "Duel point Brush Pens" that I got from Amazon, I've been trying them on my etch burning when I'm wanting to blend colors, but with the duel pint the work pretty good anywhere, they are a watercolor, check out if you're looking around

          I have used them for decorative accents on larger pieces that needed consistent colors, dots, or lines. The ones I used came form Hobby Lobby and you had to shake them really well before use.

            I've used the Very Fine Point Sharpies when I need a very fine line. Black, white, silver and Gold are the ones I've used. As an example, when I carve a crow or raven, then paint it black, the black pen is useless, is I use either the white or the silver to sign my name on the carving.

              I've been curious to try using technical pens with watered down acrylic paint. I am thinking a drop of paint to 8-10 drops of water might work. The solution would have to be the consistency of drawing ink.

                  Used them and do not like them.....for one they dry up fast and cost too much. PaInt in a tube or bottle can last years.....you can do more with a liner brush. Fine lines are made with wax color pencils, pens and sharpies.....although have to find a finish that does not run.

                    All paints are color pigment mixed with a float media. The float can be water, acrylic base, or oil. If you are using colored pencils the base or float is clear wax for artist quality pencils or a white clay for student quality.
