There is some hype about a new product....the Sharpie Liquid Pencil. This is a fun item that writes like pencil and remains eraseable for 24 hours before it becomes permanent.
But wait! This sounds familiar! Matisse Derivan has been making a product called the liquid pencil. Although the Sharpie is great as an everyday writing utensil, the Matisse liquid pencil is made for artists. It comes as a fluid so you can pour it onto your palette and use a brush. In addition, there are 4 subtly shaded undertones and 2 neutral graphite shades to use. You can use brushes, pen nibs, or any other mark-making tool.
The liquid pencil has a permanent and re-wettable formula. The permanent formula is water-soluble and similar to acrylic. The re-wettable formula is similar to watercolors in the sense that it can be thinned extensively with water or lifted with water. You can even use a regular eraser.
Get the sheen of graphite with the behavior of paint! And make sure to watch Sterling Edwards’ Free Art Lesson for a great demonstration.
