  • Paint pens- Do they exist???

    Hello, I would like to make some room signs with MDF plaques. My idea is to paint them with wood emulsion, and then write on them in text, the name of the room with a big fat pen type of thing. Does any one know if such a thing exists or indeed can point me to a brand,keeping in mind that I am intending to write over emulsion paint. I tried using a thin paintbrush but frankly found Door Hangers for Girls and then » Extremely Private, you will see the type of effect I am after. Sorry system does not allow me to post a direct link.
    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have some childrens paint pens, don't know if that is what you are after. They are a paint brush with a refillable pod of paint on the end, if you squeeze it the paint comes out. I think you can get them from The Works places like that.
    The more I think about it, I realise I am on about a different thing

      Do you mean the ones that pubs and restaurants use to write on blackboards?

        hi, yes would give something like that a try. As I said don't know if such an item exist but any suggestions welcome.

          Hi, thanks I'm not so keen on the paintbrush aspect of things but willing to take any suggestions.
          Thanks

            I was wondering, you know the small tubes of glitter glue with the tiny nozzle, that you squeeze and can draw and write with, when they're empty can you refill them with paint maybe? Or maybe there's something like that, properly, on the market already!! Empty ones that you can fill with whatever you want...like a fountain pen for paint!!

              Thanks for that suggestion, I never even thought of that idea! I will get busy sourcing and experimenting!!!

                  Those seem to be pretty much what you're after aren't they, a pen filled with paint!! Now all you need is for them to be refillable

                    Paint pens

                    Hello

                    I bought some good acrylic paint pens from yellow moon (www dot yellowmoon dot co dot uk)

                    They are £10 for 6 pens and come in 2 sets of colours. I use them for name canvasses and think they are pretty good.

                      Hi

                      I've seen these pens. You can get them in Art/craft shops.

                      I think they might be quite expensive though.

                      - If you have anywhere local to you I would recommend checking them out.

                      If you are local to the West Midlands "Spectrum" art shop has them.

                        I used to know quite a few naughty graffiti artists and they used paint pens to 'tag'

                        I remember popular brands were 'Posca' and 'Uni Paint' and they would come in a range of nib sizes.

                        You can also buy empty markers to fill with your own inks or paints.
                        If you search for graffiti supplies, some of those shops should have something useful

                          You can buy refillable paint pens here: http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/item-pentel-aqua-brush.htm

                          Or you could use marker pens. Sharpies are great for door plaques, I use them for that purpose. These are good if you want a finer line: http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/item-ku...tching-pen.htm

                          Hope that helps!

                            You could probably use the touch-up pens for car enamel - try Halfords!

                              Halfords is a really great one. I was in there the other day and they have perfect paint pens for cars. - I think they can even match a colour.
