Default Question for Gaffboat

I saw recently where you used markers to color one of your projects. Normally could do any coloring with acrylic latex paint. However, I have always laid out any features, etc., with a fine tip black marker. After reading what you did, I decided to speermint a bit with markers. Still not sure if they are what I want to continue doing, but have to say, it looks promising. Mostly. No white marker, and the yellow markers I have come out very faint yellow. Did find a white window marker, but no chance to test it yet. Not found any bright yellow. Thinking I may have to wind up painting the white and yellows.

My question is, do you have yellow and white markers? If yellow, how bright? And where did you get your markers? One nice thing about the paint, can mix custom colors, and could never do that with markers.

Thanks

You might check out these. I used to buy these for work years ago, and they are actual paint and the marks last for years on steel.

The standard light colors in permanent markers all fade in the presence of daylight or cool color LEDs and fluorescent bulbs. You need a lot of pigment for coloring weed with light colors, and that means paint, not dye.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I'll post the only pics I have. This is both sides of my test cane, it is probably over 10 years old now, one of the first canes I made. I glued the paper template on one side, and painted both sides. The side with the paper had a fair amount of paint loss, the wood side basically no loss. No finish on any of the cane, except for the paint on the handle. The one side is totally original, the other I went over with markers. Really lousy photos, but best I have of this. You can see the blue is just kind of slathered on, and the yellow beak is orangeish rather than actual yellow. The colors on the lined page are the various yellow markers I have. I do have one of those white paint sticks, and am not thrilled with it, so won't be using on on my canes. So, at a minimum I believe I'll just go back to white and yellow acrylic latex, possibly all paint. I've got experience with it, and a little goes a long way. I just don't think I can get a yellow I'm happy with any other way, plus I already have the paint, so nothing to buy. I'll have to think on it, and experiment a bit first before I make a final decision. Thanks.

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

Dunno, my test cane has no finish of any type. Sounds reasonable tho, when I put my thinned glue finish on my other canes it really make the plies pop nicely. Should work. I'll try to remember to try that tomorrow when I get home, gonna visit my older son and his kids. I'll be trying glue rather than something that takes paint thinner or such to cleanup or thin. Besides glue smells a whole lot better, and it's water cleanup. The thinned glue finishes on my other canes is hold up nicely.

Change of plans. I'd been thinking about this, I reread this thread, and realized, instead of asking a question, I should have been talking to myself. I learned at least 50 years ago that you could think of an idea, bounce it around in your skull all day, and it keeps getting better and better. And then when you try it, it is, "What was I thinking?". The thing to do when you get an idea like that is to talk to your self. When your thought is put into words, and goes into your ears, you suddenly realize, "Boy, is that a stupid idea.". Saves loads of time. Well, I suddenly realized that I like painting whatever of my stuff that I paint, it relaxes me, and it's fun mixing up custom colors at times. From the little experience I had with markers, I found that does not relax me, even a little. I don't know if the painting will take longer than using the markers, or not, and I really don't care. The benefit of the relaxation is well worth any extra time. So, the question is now moot, I will keep a few of my markers, the rest will be going to my son and grandson. For me the markers are just not my cuppa. Also, acrylic latex makes great fabric paint.
