Art Markers Customer Guide: Oil-Based Paint Pens

The ability to transform what is seen or imagined on paper is at the heart of such creative professions as landscape and interior designer, fashion designer, architect, artist. One of the important branches of fine art is graphics, when drawings are created on a flat white or colored surface using strokes, lines, spots, dots.

Previously, the main tool of artists working in this technique was a regular graphite pencil; today the range of artistic goods for graphics is much wider and includes, first of all, various types of pencils, pens, and markers.

Today manufacturers offer a wide range of different markers for every taste: water-based paint markers, oil-based paint pens, alcohol-based, chalk markers, acrylic markers. We will take a closer look at professional oil based permanent markers: we will examine their structure, the features of these artistic tools, and the main areas of their application.

The Basic Principle of Oil Paint Markers and Their Features

Basically, an oil-based marker is an aluminum or plastic case filled with a special dense paint consisting of a solvent, film-forming substances, and color pigments. Synthetic oil is the basis for the oil component of the marker. Unlike water and alcohol markers, an oil marker does not have a porous rod, and there is a small glass or plastic ball inside its tank to stir the paint. We used a similar system for all markers in our company, finding it the most optimal.

The principle of activation of Artistro oil-based marker is similar to the principle of operation of our other markers. To saturate the nib with ink and start drawing, you need to press down on the nib several times. The pump system allows you to adjust the amount of writing substance. This procedure is what is called marker activation. When you first pick up a newly purchased oil paint pens, you need to prime them first. This is a similar procedure to start a new marker. Since the marker has not yet been in use, you need to start the pump-system and establish the correct ink supply for the further operation of the marker.

Applications and Advantages of Oil-Based Permanent Markers

Oil marker ink has the properties of oil paint. As a result, the artworks are bright, glossy, and opaque. At the same time, you enjoy all the advantages of an artistic tool: the choice of the desired tip shape and the ability to draw clear, straight lines without getting your hands and clothes dirty.

Oil-based marker paint is permanent, resistant to water or alcohol dissolution and destruction by sunlight. At the same time, erase marker ink is a possible option, if necessary. For this, odorless Stoddard solvent is used. In addition, this solvent allows you to create the effect of a color gradient, blur, smooth transition when working with oil paint pens. You will be able to rework even with dried paint, mix colors or overlay them one on top of the other.

Due to this, they are widely used in construction, industry, trade, transport logistics, in car services, for various office and domestic needs. They were appreciated by illustrators, decorators, and graffiti lovers. The assortment of stationery stores will allow you to find the best tool for each specific artwork easily.
