Oil paint pen

Anyone know of a pen that uses oil paint instead of ink? Thanks!

Re: Oil paint pen

Michael's web site list 14 different colors of Sharpie oil based pens. I'm sure there are many other sources.

Re: Oil paint pen

I just tried a couple of these Montana Acrylic Refillable Pens with oils and it seems to work just fine. I diluted the paint to ink consistency first.

Re: Oil paint pen

Perry, what did you dilute with? This is an intriguing option for sketching on canvas.

I diluted with 50% M. Graham Walnut Alkyd and 50% Gamsol.

Re: Oil paint pen

I wish for a product like that. But the closest I've used was "Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Premium Oil-Based Colored Pencil" you can blend the color after laying it down. http://www.dickblick.com/items/22049-0729

And, the Winsor & Newton Oilbars, though not as thin as pens

Re: Oil paint pen

Perry- The Montana Refillable pens, how are they washed? I can't imagine trying to get all the oil out to re-use w/ a different color....do Love the possibilities here though as I do some figurative sketches in oil and need to rely on a very steady hand and complete control of the brush! ~moe

Those seem very interesting to play withNot for $96.95 though lol. Prob smaller sets somewhere. Wonder if they blend like oil and if it needs drying time. Im sure it does sense it says oil-based but not sure if its a fast dry medium or what.

Re: Oil paint pen

I should have linked the page with all the sets. There are over 30 reviews comparing it with oil paint. Here it is: http://www.dickblick.com/products/ly...d-pencil-sets/

Some people have used oil paint mediums with them like Liquin. I think I'll try regular linseed and Liquin too.

Re: Oil paint pen

Regarding the Montana refillable pens, I haven't tried changing colors and I don't plan to. The felt tip material will likely retain some pigment even if washed with mineral spirits. I plan on just refilling with the same or similar color.
