The majority of POSCA tips are washable and interchangeable (PC-1MC, PC-3M, PC-5m, PC-7M, PC-8K, and PC-17K). Some of them are also reversible (PC-3M and PC-5M). If a tip becomes dry over time (for example, if the cap is not properly replaced), you can soak it in a glass of water to reuse it. These products should not be used on metal or plastic parts of cameras or lenses.
The POSCA pen body is made of plastic and therefore is not washable. You should avoid contact with liquids if you have skin problems or are pregnant.
Made in Japan.
Your POSCA markers can remain in any position as long as the cap is securely replaced after usage. Because of the integrated ball, the paint held in the marker's body may be re-mixed at any moment. POSCA brush tips are an exception. It should always be stored horizontally. The ferrule (the section that connects the handle to the brush) should be smoothed off with a tool such as a knife or screwdriver.
Brushes need to be cleaned regularly to ensure that they produce consistent results. This is particularly important with water-based paints because they can dry out over time if not used frequently. Cleaning your brushes is easy; just wash them in soap and water to remove any paint or model glue residue, then rinse them under running water until all traces of soap have been removed.
Now that they're clean, put some hair conditioner into a bowl of hot water for about five minutes. Rinse your brushes thoroughly before using them again.
Here are five more things you should know about POSCA brushes:
1. They're widely used by artists worldwide.
2. Their quality is considered valuable by many collectors.
3. They were originally designed for use with oil paints, but have also been tested with acrylics and other mediums.
Posca markers, being water-based, should be very easy to wipe and erase while still wet. Posca markers are most readily wiped or cleaned when they are applied to a non-porous surface such as glass, most plastics, or metal. Once dry, they are more difficult to remove.
It is also easy to wash off skin.
The marker will dry quickly so there is no need for a ventilation system while working on a large project. There are two types of POSCA markers: standard and extra-fine.
Standard markers are fine for most applications; extra-fine markers are suitable for finer lines or detailed work. They do cost more but last longer and don't need to be replaced as often.
Unlike other water-based pens, POSCA markers do not contain toxic substances like lead or mercury. They are also safe for people, animals, and the environment. However, they should not be fed to dogs or cats because they may try to eat them. In addition, POSCA markers are known for being difficult to erase if dropped in water or spilled on clothing.
If you stop using a standard pen and leave it inside your shirt or pants pocket, when you next use it, the marker will still be there. This means that you might want to keep extras around in case you run out of regular ones. Otherwise, you'll have to throw away what's left of your marker!
What Uniposca pen size should I use?
Make use of a solvent. Solvents will dissolve the ink and bring everything back to life. Both nail polish remover (with acetone) and rubbing alcohol are effective. Simply apply a small amount on cotton wool and wrap it around the tip for a few minutes. Be careful not to get any liquid in your eyes.
Use some tape or glue. If you put some clear tape over the pen point, you can still write with it. The pressure from writing will push the tape against the paper and hold it there long enough for you to finish your sentence.
Try again later. Sometimes new pens need time to break in. This is normal. Just keep writing even though the ink isn't that nice at first.
Contact customer service. Some brands offer free replacement tips. For example, Pelikan has guaranteed delivery of replacement tips within 30 days of purchase. You can also contact the manufacturer directly if you feel this problem falls within product guidelines.
POSCA is a fantastic tool for all of these tasks because, when applied to glass, its colors take on new depth and brilliance, and they can be wiped away with water whenever you want to start again.
There are two types of POSCA: liquid and powder. Both work well on glass, but each has its advantages and disadvantages. Liquid POSCA requires washing the color off your hand before going back in to re-apply more paint, while powder POSCA does not. Either way, you will need to repeat the application of the paint several times until you get the result you're looking for.
When you apply POSCA to a window, it is important that you go over the same area twice - once with a thin layer and again with a thicker one. Otherwise, you might end up with a patchy effect instead of a uniform look.
You should allow enough time for the paint to dry before opening any windows or doors because if it gets too hot or cold inside the house, the paint will come off.
Paint markers are useful tools for applying POSCA to large areas quickly. They come in different sizes and shapes so you can pick the right one for the job. Make sure that you buy paints with high pigment content because this will give you a brighter color faster.
