Acrylic paint marker
Good acrylic pens have a high opacity. Especially when artists paint canvases they want and need highly opaque acrylic paint marker and a rich paint application with even color transitions. In order to increase the brilliance of acrylic paints it is recommended to prime the canvas with an acrylic dispersion. However, a good acrylic paint marker is also highly opaque even when the surface has not been primed before. In addition, the lightfastness is of high value as the colors may fade when they are exposed to the sunlight. Therefore, only top-quality acrylic pens with the highest UV resistance should be used for high-class canvases and artworks.

Especially highly opaque alcohol markers, so called tag markers are used for graffiti, graffiti tags and fast markings.

Thus, black and silver graffiti markers are often used for tagging, however there are also trend colors e.g., copper. Graffiti tags in copper can be seen more and more under graffiti pieces.
While paint markers and acrylic paint markers have a high opacity, conventional felt-tip pens have a semi-opaque paint application. However, there are also differences between diluted inks with pigments when speaking of color brilliance, color brightness and ink flow. In doing so, felt-tip pens, or pens with a fibre rod system need a juicy paint flow. Sketchmarkers with an alcohol-based ink are well-known for their short drying time. However, a great advantage is the strong odor as a result of the alcohol-based ink. This may lead to headaches when using the alcohol-based sketchmarkers on a regular basis. As a consequence, felt-tip pens or graphic markers with a water-based ink are getting more and more popular. The water-based ink is almost odorless and environmentally-friendly which make them perfect for painting with kids or to do handicraft with kids. Some of the graphic markers with water-based inks have food-based colorants. They are harmless to children.
