POSCAs are water-based pigment paint markers which are without solvent and odourless and can write on any surface. Paint is permanent on porous surfaces, and removable on non-porous surfaces such as glass. Ideal for a wide range of surfaces, the paint markers adhere perfectly to all types of paper and cardboard such as tracing paper, photo paper or cardboard. The paint does not bleed through paper and is resistant through time. The adherence can be further optimized using varnish. POSCA is great for use on clays, stones and rocks, cement etc. It adheres perfectly and you can get a fine line definition. They are also ideal for creative works on ceramic/porcelain. Once baked in the oven, they will become permanent. If you want to keep a POSCA artwork made in ceramic or porcelain, it is recommended that you use a matte lacquer hair spray or slow cooking up to 120 °. Wash in cold water only. The paint marker are also ideal for creations on wood. It is resistant to water, light and time and so it is particularly recommended for outside surfaces. It is also suitable for use on latex, it writes on glass yet can be cleaned off with a damp cloth. POSCA pens can also be used on smooth and raw leather, suede and even wax or eggshell.

Generally, the paint dries quicker on porous surfaces than on smooth ones. In any case, wait a few minutes and the paint will be dry. WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN THE TIP HAS DRIED? Don't panic if you have lost the cap and the tip has completely dried. Thanks to the piston and valve mechanism, you can flow paint once again by priming the POSCA marker again. Another tip: In case the tip is extremely dry, you can take it out simply by pulling and rinse it with water. WHAT ARE POSCA'S PAINT CHARACTERISTICS? The paint is both opaque and fluid, smooth and dense with a wide coverage. It can be mixed, diluted and overlaid. The rendering is similar to that of acrylic. HOW TO MIX COLOURS? You can mix colours directly onto the surface as long as the paint is wet. Another tip: You can clean the tip, turn it over or replace it if the reference allows it. HOW TO OVERLAY COLOURS? Opaque and dense, POSCA's paint is ideal to overlay colours ! As the paint dries quickly, you can cover a layer by another one within a minute and without smudges. Another tip: Light colours can perfectly overlay with dark ones. WHAT DOES 'WATERCOLOUR' MEAN? HOW CAN I GET THIS EFFECT? POSCA's paint can be diluted to create a gradation effect: that is 'watercolour'. It has to be performed before the paint dries. Another tip: You can use a brush soaked in water to work directly with the paint.
