Featured Medium SPECTRUM NOIR METALLIC MARKERS, 6PK - Retail $16.95
These versatile dual-tipped markers lay down a perfectly smooth, highly reflective metallic finish on dark and light paper, vellum, acetate, craft metal, ceramics, and more. Spectrum Noir Metallic Twin-tip Markers contain premium water-based ink that has been blended with metallic pigments, for a flawless, opaque laydown of metallic color. The two tips include a brush for smooth fills and a fine point for detailed work. Acid-free and archival, these markers make fadeless marks on a variety of materials but are especially stunning on black or dark surfaces. Because the ink is water-soluble, it also can be used to create watercolor techniques — it blends when wet but won’t move when it dries.
