I like Marvy Marker for a watercoloer effect but I do wish they would
make the ink and pen caps the same corlor.  For a permament maker, I
like Zig's because they have a real nice fine tip.  I also have some
Gelly Roll's in gel ink with sparkels in it that are nice But I do find
the gel tends to spear so i heat set it.  I don't buy cheap ones
because they dry out very quickly.  I also like open stock option of
Marvy's, Zig's, anf Gelly Roll's,  That way I don't have to buy a set
to get one color.

I have some zigs and mostly marvey but i would love to buy some of Dee's
markers she works wonders with hers and i like the shape of them..but

You know, I've never really gotten into markers.  I like the concept of
using them direct-to-rubber, but never really enjoyed actually using it.  I
like to color in images, and never liked the streakiness I get from doing so
with markers.

I also agree with JR - it bugs the bejeezes out of me when cap and ink
colors aren't the same!

Hello :)
My first post to this newsgroup :) Marvy Markers are my favorites. I've
had my markers for several years and they haven't dried up like some of
the other brands tend to do. If one of the markers gets dry, I open the
top and drop a few drops of glycerine & water into the pen. I learned
recently that if I store them with the tips/caps down, they work much
better-the moisture stays in the tip. My favorite techniques...using the
markers with blender pens or scribbling on plastic with the markers and
using paint brushes to pick up the colors.

I only have six Marvy Markers and hadn't used them in years so just checked
them out...they are still wet but only two make a sound when I shake them.
What could that mean?  They are Metallics.  I bet they would look pretty
using them with the aqua painter.  That's my favorite way to use markers
too.  I scribble on a CD and use my aqua painter to pick up the color.

FYI if you have markers with brushes on both ends you should lay them flat.
Stamp pads should be laid upside down.

Hi SAD,

I did not like my Marvy's so I sold all of them I think in a pencil cup
$0.25 a piece of 5 for a $1.00.  I just didn't like them  I prefer the
Tobmbow's because I truly like the idea of both tips.  Easier for me to
use.  I prefer eaiser.  I didn't know about laying those markers flat.
Thank for the heads up on that one.

I did however know about the ink pads, however, if you have a pigement
pad for exaple Brilliance Ink pads you don't want to store them upside
down as they are naturlly gushy and
to much ink means smudgy to me.  I store all of my dye inks and
kaliedacolor pads upside down, after that everyone else stays upright.
Right or wrong not sure, works for me.

Thanks for the info on the Brilliance pads.  I wondered why some of mine
made the stamps such a gunky  mess when I inked them.  I'll have to turn
them right side up now.

Re: Here is another one for you . . . Tombow or other marker?
I have all Tombow.  My mom is an SU demonstrator and has their markers
plus CTMH markers, so when we were there for Thanksgiving she gave me
all of her Tombows.  I've got to sort through and I'll give her back
any duplicates (I know we had some of the same colors), but my marker
collection just trippled :-)

I don't like direct-to-rubber with markers as much as using ink pads
with my stamps, but there have been a few times when that technique
came in handy.

Hi Barbara,

Now isn't that funny that you say that you don't like to use your
markers direct-to-rubber, because that is the only way I like to use
them. You see I don't color very well and this is a way for me to make
a colored stamp.  You know for instance with a flower stamp I color the
stem green and the flower a different color.

I love my tombow's and have all of the sets that The Angel Company
offers.  LOVE my TOMBOWS.

The great thing about the SU markers is that they match their cardstock
and inks and to me that is a great feature too.

I was just wondering what others thought and what type of marker is
their favorites.

Inky Huggz,

Missy
