Tutorial: Paint Pens

Overview:

This tutorial demonstrates how to create really fine lines using paint pens. These are perfect tools for text, script, calligraphy, detailed images, and mixed media projects.

Materials:

• Decocolor Paint Pens (medium, fine and extra fine tip)

Process:

• Activate the pen by shaking vigorously sideways for 1-2 minutes.
• Release the paint flow by gently
pressing the nib rapidly on a piece of paper until the paint comes through.
• Notice any extra paint accumulating at the tip; this indicates a ruined pen. Toss it.
• Store them flat, not up and down, and shake each time before use.
