Prismacolor has come out with a line of artist quality (so they claim) markers that are archival, acid free, permanent, and water resistant.

They are fine point and have metal barrels. These might be a good choice for those who like to outline their work. It might also be a good signature pen as well.

I have just become aware of them, haven't seen them yet. I will be getting some at some point to give them a try. This might be a good way to do some layout and drawing in as some of us are so want to do.

It may be a good option for the refillable markers that seem to have disappeared off the market place.

Howard,
I really appreciate all the neat little tidbits you give us and the info on some of the new products and books. The info on mixing colors that you have posted has been very helpful also. Thanks a bunch from me!
Gail

It's nice to see Prismacolor/Sanford finally coming around to the archival market. Looks like they only offer 8 colors, though. There's a brand called Zig that makes a Writer Pen (http://store.scrapbooking-warehouse.com/zigwriterpens.html) which offers more colors. I especially like the "platinum" which is a medium gray. The tip is not as small as the Prismacolor, however. There are other brands of pigmented markers too, but they only come in black.

How wonderful it that. Two sources for good markers.

thanks for the heads up. if you end up getting any, please let us know how they are. i'm curious how well they'd work to draw on stretched canvas.
