Have fun with POSCA pens!

We love POSCA pens! These markers use water-based pigment ink to produce poster-paint-like vibrant colours. Posca is easily removed from glass, making it ideal for temporary signs and window art. Once dry, you can easily layer over the top to build your design and correct any errors. But what else can you with POSCA pens?
