Question: White Sharpies?

I saw on Twitter that Sharpie has a white marker.  I'm always on the look out for a white pen that will write over dark, so I went to Amazon to check it out. 

To my bemusement, I discovered a White Sharpie Paint pen, a White Sharpie Oil-based Marker, a White Sharpie Poster-paint (Water-based) pen, a White Sharpie Permanent Paint marker and a White Sharpie Mean Streak Marking Stick, Broad Tip.  I also saw a White Pentel felt-tipped marker.

Anyone tried any of these?  Some of them are under $3, most are near $10 or above.  I'm wondering if any of these are worth putting on my ever-burgeoning wish list.


  1. I'm in love with my white Sharpie poster-paint pen. ("white, extra fine point, water-based, opaque paint marker") And it really dries beautifully opaque. Got mine from USA too ( Paper Ink Arts). :-)

  2. I've used the paint pens to good effect...

  3. There are several good wht pens out there I have good success w-Gelly Roll brand found at allartsupplies.com
    for under $2 they have some beautiful metallics as well & another great brand is Fiskars brans I also use an acrylic ink (matt & pearlized)....

  4. Thank you all. I'm hoping to visit our local art store soon. My budget strains, lol, so I'm hoping to make good choices.

  5. I would love to have some suggestions on what kind of black paper to use. Can someone recommend? Thank you!
