Pigment Decobrush markers give artists the freedom of creation. Their opaque paint can be used on paper, metal, glass, plastic, wood, textiles and lots more. The opaque matte paint can also be used on dark surfaces with techniques still unavailable to other markers. When painting, the markers will not through the paper.
Pigment Decobrush paints inside the markers are similar to acrylic paints. Moreover, they are enclosed in an easy-to-use body with a flexible, brush-shaped nylon tip. The colours can be blended until the paint is completely dry. The drying time of the paint depends on the surface. After going fully dry, the paint becomes waterproof, yet can be removed from most surfaces. Use an appropriate varnish if you wish your art to be permanent.
Pigment Decobrush markers contain 2.4ml of non-toxic opaque organic pigment-based paints.
IMPORTANT: To prevent the sensitive brush tip from fraying, you should only write on smooth paper/surfaces if possible.
To create a colour gradient (= blending) with the PIGMENT markers, e.g. within a word, first, apply the first colour and let it dry briefly. Then paint the second colour about 1/3 of the area above it and carefully mix the colour pigments with the first colour at the transition. To do this, carefully run the front 2-3mm of the brush tip over the second colour. It is best to use smooth, non-absorbent papers/surfaces, such as the Canson Imagine Mix Media paper.
- 84 colours (colour numbers correspond to the PANTONE colours)
- Tank with 2.4 ml of paint
- Flexible brush pen tip
- Water-based acrylic ink
- Once dry, waterproof and permanent (but not scratch-resistant)
- Can be used on many materials such as paper, metal, glass, plastic and textiles
- UV light resistant
- On textiles, the ink can be fixed by ironing (on the back) and washed at 40 degrees
Store only horizontally with the tip slightly inclined downwards. This is the only way to protect the brush pen tips of the markers from drying out.
Shake the marker well before use (no pumping necessary and can be used immediately). If the ink flow is poor or the opacity is too low, shake the pen again. If the marker should dry out, you can reactivate it by doing the following:
- Shake well
- Store horizontally for an hour with the tip slightly down
- Briefly dip the tip in clean water
- Paint with it on a sheet of paper until the paint flows properly again
- Repeat steps 1-4 if necessary
