|As you can see, they are inexpensive! Only $1.97 for the individual markers which are newly available at Walmart. With the individual Painters Paint Markers, there is an expanded selection of colors and tip sizes.|
They also come in packages. Here are the different package options. More photos from my shopping trip can be found in my Google+ album.
I opted to buy a package of the Sherbet Swirl colors, along with white, silver and gold individual Painters Paint Markers.
For this project, I thought it would be really fun to customize a few vases with different designs. I picked up the vases from Walmart for just a couple bucks each, and also used a small glass which I now use as a bud vase.
|Here are my Walmart purchases.|
To use these markers, you simply shake them well before opening, and then press it down for a few seconds. Then, you're good to go!
|Press marker down on a piece of paper for a few seconds until paint reaches the tip.|
|Then, paint away! It's easier if you hold the vase (or whatever you are painting) with one hand while you paint/draw with the other, but I had to take this picture somehow!|
Now, don't judge - I opted to draw free-hand designs on these vases, and I am definitely not an "arteest." But I think they turned out pretty cute. They dry quickly in just a matter of minutes. And a bonus for my fellow moms: they're non-toxic and acid free.
Painters Paint Markers would be really fun to use for writing cute messages or names on drinking glasses, vases or candle holders, particularly for special occasions. Or you could use stencils and create a pretty design on whatever type of surface you choose. These not only work on glass, but also on wood, plastic, pottery, ceramic, metal, paper, fabrics and more.
And literally as I was making these, my husband and one of my kiddos came home with flowers for me! Perfect timing. (Yes, I'm a lucky wife and momma.)
