Pens for lettering on baubles?
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:51:07 PM »
Does anyone have any recommendations for pens to write on baubles with? I was thinking the metallic Sharpie markers might be good, though if there are any other suggestions?
The baubles will be plastic and I think they're after the ones with the matte finish. They'll be supplying the baubles.


I'm guessing something like this: http://www.kmart.com.au/product/baubles---red--green,-pack-of-36/1056366

Yes, Sharpies usually work very well. It is best to get some samples to test before hand. Once in a while Sharpies do not work and then you can try paint pens which usually work fine - but you need space and racks to let them dry without rolling around.

Thanks Jean. I hadn't thought of the need for the paint pens to dry and the baubles rolling away! I will test out some baubles and Sharpies beforehand then.
