The Best White Pen Ever

Mar 2, 2023

As long as I have been hanging out with artists, I have been hearing the conversations about finding a good white pen to use for lettering over darker colors, for adding highlights to paintings, to white out small mistakes and add special effects.

I have tried all the white pens I have been able to find, including the Signo gel pens and white acrylic paint pens, but they have either dried out too quickly, been too translucent, or too shiny or too harsh for highlights. I have even tried gesso and acrylic ink applied with a brush.

I have finally found the best white and it is a chalk pen!
