There are many types of markers these days, and it is very difficult for a beginner artist to make a choice. Markers are no longer narrow-end tools, and today the range of their application is huge. Basically, this tool is a plastic case containing ink and a colored rod made of porous fibers or a plastic flask filled with a specific type of ink. Marker inks can be based on alcohol, water, acrylic, or chalk. Each composition is better suited for a specific task.
Markers are different: office, art, child markers and others. Based on your preferences and financial wealth, you need to decide which markers are better to buy.

Acrylic markers perform an opaque and durable stroke. Their main advantage is the ability to paint on any surfaces, covering them with a thin but dense layer of paint. In addition, acrylic painting pens do not wash with water after drying. They can be a great substitute or addition to acrylic paints. In this case, you do not need to use brushes and palettes, since colors can be mixed directly on paper or canvas.
An acrylic marker consists of a body, an inner part (it looks like a dense sponge soaked in ink) and a nib (different types and thicknesses, quantities) with a lid. Note that some manufacturers offer double-sided markers or replacement nibs in different thicknesses. The most expensive parts of a marker are the nib and ink. It is these composite parts that are the lion's share of the price of the total cost of the acrylic paint markers.
When choosing good art markers, it is better to pre-read reviews; find ready-made artworks made with various materials on the Internet. It should be noted that the color of the stroke changes slightly as the ink dries. In some cases, this can be noticeable, so pay special attention to choosing a complete palette.
Good acrylic markers from different manufacturers should go well with each other: mix on paper, be approximately the same in ink quality and performance under equal conditions. There are several important aspects to consider when choosing acrylic paint marker pens:
