When brainstorming your next DIY project, consider experimenting with acrylic paint markers.
These little tools are the MVPs of the art world and can add so much to your creations. What makes paint markers so cool? For starters, their versatility. Simple customizations to full-scale works of art can be made using paint markers.
Read on to learn more about acrylic paint markers, their uses, and how you can incorporate them into new DIY art projects.
Create on more surfaces
We touched a bit on the adaptability of paint pens. What makes them this way is their ability to be used on a wide variety of surfaces. The paint pens can be used on canvas, rock, wood, leather, and pretty much anything you can think of. As long as it doesn’t clash with the paint, you’re good!
Using the pens is a smooth and easy process. Plus, since they are actually paint, the designs you create will not be transparent.
Add finishing touches with acrylic paint markers
Acrylic paint markers are more precise than other art tools like paint brushes or spray paint. This makes them the perfect go-to item for adding small details or finishing touches.
So if you’ve made a DIY project, say a birdhouse, you can add flair to it with paint pens. They are also great for adding more to delicate items.
Customize your items
Say you just bought a whole set of plain dishes on sale. They were worth the bargain and saved you a few bucks, the only problem is, they don’t really reflect your style.
That’s where paint markers step in.
Building off of the last point, acrylic paint pens should be the tools you choose to customize your everyday items. Some other projects to consider include decorating your phone cases, updating old jewelry, sprucing up office equipment, among many others.
Paint pens have more of mobile vibe to them making them ideal for artists on the go.
Instead of lugging along an entire kit of supplies all you need to do to use paint pens is shake them up and take off their cap. It’s that easy!
Used by everyone
Paint pens are used by everyday DIYers as well as fine artists.
If you want to create with the kiddos in your life, paint pens are an awesome idea. They’re perfect since they are easy to use and can create vibrant designs. Make sure to keep in mind the type of paint pens that will work best for you.
There are non-toxic, kid-friendly paint pens available just for this purpose.
