I found this cool little paint pen tool (through Dana– thank you very much!!) and have been having so much fun with it.

It looks like this:

I made a little demo of me using this awesome pen.

Once I was done with my video, I played a bit more with my pen using the white ink and adding a flowery vine all around.

Tips:

*use thin fluid acrylic paints or acrylic ink when using on an acrylic background.
*regular paint can be thinned with water or a thinning medium.
*works well on plain paper with regular ink or acrylic paints and inks
*use a wet towel (wipe or stay-wet palette) to help flow/unclog during painting process.
*clean immediately after use. Don’t allow paint to dry within the nub.
*clean with water in a cup or running faucet. Deep clean with alcohol wipe and cleaning needle tool.

Anyone else played with this tool? Please share your tips, experience. Would love to hear.

    Thank you for posting! I bought a set of Rapidograph pens many years ago- excited because there was a super fine nib. Unfortunately they dry up and clog almost immediately. I settled for Micron pens and love them but always feel guilty about the inability to recycle. This is great and so easy to switch between colors!
