Artist oil-based paint markers come in a variety of vibrant hues. The lightly-pigmented paint dries to a glossy and lightfast finish. Ideal for use on smooth and non-porous surfaces, these markers dry quickly and the paint can be reactivated, even after several weeks, to obtain gradiants and shades.
