{DIY} Lettered Artwork with Posca Pens

Posca Pens

I was asked to give Posca Pens a try – pens that will write (and permanently stay) on anything. I love trying to customise things and thought it would be a great chance to doodle away on some T-Shirts for Albert and make some artwork. In fact I got so excited I even ordered a bunch of T-Shirts for him but three weeks have passed and they still aren’t here. Cue annoyed face.

But I was desperate to try out these pens so I decided on a slightly different project, a hand lettered bit of artwork.

I’ve had this orange frame from IKEA for eons. It cost £1 and was one of those impulse buys that end up costing you £50. You know what I mean. It’s just a simple frame with a transparent plastic insert to hold the picture in. But I decided to ditch a picture altogether and just write on the clear plastic to create a bit of art for Albert’s playroom. Now I’m not a lettering expert (which is pretty obvious) but I was really impressed with the result using Posca Pens from my bit of doodling.

All it took was a quick shake of the pens to make the paint come through, then write/draw/squiggle the design, a bit of a wait for it to dry and voila, it was permanent.

I added some little white stars too which I thought looked cute. I really like how the picture is see through and I’ve got loads of ideas for things I can make with these pens now.

I got a pack of six which includes black, white, red, blue, green and orange. I really hope the T-Shirts arrive soon so I can see how the pens shape up on fabric. (I’ve read other reviews and they are all positive so I’m looking forward to giving them a try).

If you’re looking to try your hand at something creative and have some old plates, pictures, canvases, fabric or glass which could be brightened by a doodle then check out Posca Pens. The colours are bold and bright, they are easy to use and dry quickly before becoming permanent.

Lots of doodling love,
