PAINT PENS

Yes, Creative Husky Paint Pens are permanent on 'porous' surfaces such as paper, cardboard, rocks, terra-cotta, wood, rubber and more.

Shiny and slippery surfaces, such as glass, porcelain and mirror are called 'non-porous' surfaces. Acrylic paint does not stick to non-porous surfaces as well and may scratch off when dry.  To prevent this, you can cure/bake your items - see below for instructions.

Yes, our paint pens do work on glass and ceramic. However, to make the paint more permanent you'll need to bake/cure it.

Here's how:

  • - First, thoroughly clean the surface using rubbing alcohol
  • - Paint your design and let it air dry for 24 hours before baking.
  • - When completely dry, put the object into a cold oven, set oven to 180 Degrees Celcius. Leave in oven for 1 hour.
  • - After 1 hour, turn the oven off and let the object cool in the oven.
  • Hand-washing in warm water is the best option (don't use a dishwasher). There is always a chance that the paint may scratch (this is true of any acrylic paint on glass), so handle the item with care.

    Its important to make sure there is always enough paint on the tip - this will protect the tip and ensure its long life. Getting paint into the tip is quick and easy to do:

  • SHAKE the pen (with lid on)
  • PUMP (compress) the tip up and down a few times on a spare piece of paper (not on your artwork!)
  • PAINT!
  • Yes, absolutely! Our acrylic pens are water-based and non-toxic and have no nasty smell. They are certified to strict European toy safety standards and conform to ASTM D-4236 in the USA. They can be safely enjoyed by kids (3 years and above), teenagers and adults alike. Perfect for school projects, school holidays or rainy day projects.

    DUAL TIP BRUSH PENS

    Our dual tip markers are water-based. They are acid-free, non-toxic and odourless and are completely safe and suitable for the whole family!

    WATERCOLOUR BRUSH PENS

    The blending brush can be used directly onto the paper to blend colours, or you can load them with colour separately (on a zip lock bag, ceramic plate or other non-porous surface) - but, first you need to fill it with water - unscrew the top off (clockwise), fill with water and screw the lid back on. To wet the brush, lightly squeeze the pen and a water drop will appear.
