Posca Markers are acrylic ink markers with light-fast, waterproof, high
pigmented inks. They have the same properties as acrylic paint, in that they dry
waterproof, but Posca artwork is very unique in appearance. The dry ink has a
flat-matt look that is distinctly ‘Posca’. Many of our artists use Posca’s just
for that look. They can be used on many surfaces including surfboards, canvases,
wood, metal and plastics, even shoes. The ink is permanent once dry but can be
removed from glass (windows, windscreens) by using a blade to scrape the paint
off then using Windex to clean up.
Tip: A wet brush can be used to blend and give gradients of colour to Posca ink.
The different sized Posca's are shown below. Each category has its own nib size and shape. The finest nib draws a .7mm line similar to a thick biro and the broadest draws a chunky 15mm line.
