I'm not going to write a proper review of the Sakura Permapaque Opaque Paint Markers. I have never used any kind of paint markers before so I don't really have anything to compare them to. That said, I recently bought a pack of ten colours: white, black, brown, red, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
So far, I'm liking them. They definitely have a different look and feel to them than your basic markers that you can buy at the grocery store. The only disappointing thing about them so far is the white marker. At best, all it does is lighten the colour of the paper beneath it. At worst, the white is practically invisible. I have tried it on several different surfaces with the same results. I am rather puzzled by this as the yellow marker (also a light colour) writes on dark surfaces fairly well. Oh well. I suppose my quest for a good white pen/marker will continue.

I am planning to use these markers in my art journal, which I have not forgotten and which I do intend to write more posts on. (I warned you about my inconstant journaling habits.) I have a short break between exams right now, so hopefully I'll be able to get another post up here soon.
