  • which pens write on gloss paint

    I've been using some lovely gloss paint for my wooden signs, but am struggling to find a permanent marker that writes smoothly on them. I had a Stabilo write-for-all pen (fine ponit) but this doesn't work on gloss - any suggestions ? I hand-write names and phrases, so need something that is fine, and rolls easily.

    Hope somebody can help please ...

    Have you tried a Sharpie? They come in a range of colours and have fine or broader nibs. Don't know how well they would work for you but they do write on anything.

      You could try those pens they use for writing on CD's & DVD's once they are copied. Don't know if you want them that fine, but the print stays on the plastic.

        I would have thought any type of 'permanent market pen' would work. You can generally pick colours of blue, black, green and red in any of the cheap and pound shops.
