About this deal

This is the BIC Intensity of the paint pens - comes in either an extra fine tip or a broad tip that doesn't allow for much detail work, but would yield nice and bold signatures on larger pieces. Liquitex Professional Acrylic

You may have heard of Staedtler before with their blue Lumocolor permanent markers, they're a German company, so this brand is more available and popular over in Europe. This marker is a lot like the Silver Sharpie, but the difference with this marker is the tip, which has a finer point, which is useful for when you want to get a signer to do a quote or are adding a lot of signatures on an item. In my tests, I'd say it is comparable when compared with the Silver Sharpie in both results and price point, but is more reliable. One thing of note, is that it will wipe off of highly smooth surfaces like plaques, statue bases, and glossy trading cards.. Sakura Permapaque Marker The final acrylic paint pen I reviewed, it only comes with a chisel tip that takes a while to prime, and the ink is semi-translucent, leaving you with less than desirable results. Hard Pass.When it comes to metallic paint pens, Decocolor, PenTouch, and Edding are all pretty much on a sure footing with each other, and the edge to which one would ‘win’ in your eyes boils down to either personal preferences, or your geographical location (Edding brand is pretty much exclusively found in Europe). Examples of personal preferences could be having a paint pen with a thin nib (PenTouch has a 1mm nib without being a metal ultrafine tip) or a little fuller one like Edding (1.5mm) or Decocolor (1.8mm), or a certain color tint.

This is another oddball acrylic paint pen, and the only thing that makes it stand out from the rest is that it takes forever to prime between uses. Hard pass. Prismacolor PremierThe right pen can do wonders for your writing, especially if you want to leave a lasting impression. Similarly, the right handwriting pen for school can make such a difference for children when just learning to write or building their confidence. There’s so much a quality pen can do, so shop our range today! For example, there are 30 different colors in the Decocolor line, 22 in the Edding 751 line, and 59 in the Uni Posca line. Some words of advice when using paint pens is to carefully read the instructions for first prepping and using that particular pen, as some can be quirky, and the other is to prep and test the pen just before the item is going to be signed, as you want to ensure the best result possible. Silver is the most popular metallic option, so I went out and bought as many random and different silver paint pens that I could find, and here are my findings. Sharpie Metallic Paint Pen I'm not going to waste time talking about this marker - avoid it at all costs, as it's by far the worst one I've tested of all of the markers. When used, it did not yield crisp signatures, rather it was more diffused and bubbly, and was more translucent and glittery than the other paint pens. Molotow One4All Acrylic Also, it’s ultimately up to you to test the pens for yourself to see what would work best for you and your item, as not every surface, climate, condition, etc can be reasonably tested for. This was just because I wanted to try out a bunch of pens and find the best one out there, and figured the community would enjoy the information. Gold and Bronze notes: Like the silver, these two colors are also dull metal in appearance, which allows it to stand out. Krink K-42 Paint Pen

Since I had been using their 'basic' paint pen for awhile, I figured I should give their "premium" version a try and based upon my testing, I'm extremely disappointed with it. For an item that's double the price of their basic version, there's nothing premium about it other than a new label and it's a little more 'glittery' than the standard one. Hard pass. Edding 751 Paint Marker This is also an acrylic marker like the Molotow One4All, but the one thing that makes it unique from the rest of the metallic markers is that they tend to be more dull metal than metallic in appearance. We sometimes take for granted just how often we need and use pens in our daily lives and the moment you desperately need one, there never seems to be one to hand. Our exciting WHSmith range encompasses thousands of styles and pen types so you need never be without one again. If you’re a dedicated handwriting aficionado, browse our selection of stylish fountain pens from Parker fountain pens to LAMY, Cross and Caran d'Ache for the ultimate writing experience. For those destined to scribble on every paper surface available, our selection of ballpoint pens, rollerball pens and gel pens are easy to use and beautifully designed.This pen performs as expected like any other paint pen, but what makes Posca Paint stand out from the rest of the paint pen market is the sheer amount of color options - 59 different ones to choose from, and up to eight different nib options depending on the color, so you can choose something that suits your specific needs. The one thing that is worth noting, is that it took a little longer (less than a minute total) than other paint pens to dry. So be mindful of that if you're using Posca Paint Pens. Sakura PenTouch This is a brand that I have heard mention many times by European collectors, but have not seen them myself in any US-based stores, so I was fortunate to get some help with obtaining some of these pens. Without typing up too much of the same stuff, they are just like the Decocolor paint pens, but are more readily available in stores to the European consumer. Solid performer and no issues with the end result. Like the Decocolor series, they're available in different nib sizes and colors, but are only identified as such with different numbers, such as 780 for Extra Fine, 751 for Fine, and 750 for Broad Uni Posca This performs like the other paint pens, but there's a couple things that set it apart from the others I've tested. The first thing is that it's acrylic, meaning that it doesn't have any fumes, and you can refill these pens and see how much ink is left on the side thanks to a built-in window. Definitely an option to consider if you are sensitive to smells, and is by far the best acrylic paint pen of the four I tested. One thing that the One4All Acrylic line has going for it, is that it has nearly 50 different colors to choose from. Molotow Liquid Chrome What pen should I use on this item? What about on that item? That’s a question that frequently gets asked in the Star Wars Autograph Universe group and other autograph groups routinely, and a lot of times it boils down to personal preference which can vary widely based upon where people live, and how much money they are willing to spend on a single marker.
