Paint Pens

luvnaz61March 10, 2008

I was at Michaels the other day looking at painting supplies and saw some pens that looked similar to markers but are used for painting. They were painting pens! Has anyone used these and would they be easier to paint with than a brush for a person (me!) that is new to painting? Thanks, Mary

I use paint pens but they are used for fine detail and writing on projects, not for actual painting. What kind of tips did the pens have?

I've never tried the paint pens mainly because they were more expensive than the paints I think. I can see where they would probably give better control, especially on things like lettering which I always struggle with.

Let us know if you try them out. I'd be interested to hear if they work as well or better. Might be worth the investment.
