Tips when Using Sharpie Markers


Color Technique with Sharpie Markers on TilesKim Kelley loves to learn and explore new techniques and hopes that any art she creates leads someone to find their inner creative artist.  On discovering Sharpie Markers on a Pinterest, she decided to click on the actual site of Sharpie to try it out. The following are the materials she used:

  • Sharpie Markers
  • White embossing powder
  • 4 2×2 tiles
  • Heat gun
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Teal and Yellow paint
  • Stampin’ Up scripture stamp:  Romans 12:12 and Philippians 4:13

And how does one go about it:

  • Start out with 4 marble tiles which are meant to be used as magnets for the fridge and are only about 2” x 2”.
  • Start coloring by using a few Sharpie Pens.
  • Using an eye dropper, drop the alcohol in spots and then cringe. This is one of the most fun bits.
  • Leave it to try for a few days then ink up the stamp and add the powder
  • After it dries, add a finishing spray by Krylon let that dry a day and re-stamp them but make sure you add powder using the heat fun.
  • In the event the edges look too messy, you can choose a teal and a yellow orange color to paint the edges.
  • You can add another layer of finishing spray if after painting the edges they still look dull.

It is said that this technique gives out creative and wonderful work.
