The Best Opaque Permanent Paint Markers
Marker (blue marker image by Maciej Mamro from

Opaque permanent markers are perfect for anything from craft projects to fine-art that require permanency and vibrant, full coverage. The most revered opaque permanent markers tend to have remarkably high-pigment similar to the opacity of acrylic paint or enamel in the convenient implementation of a marker. Depending on whether the marker is oil-based or chemical-based, it can be used on virtually any smooth surface, including glass and plastic.

ZIG Woodcraft Markers

These water-based permanent markers are ideal for chalkboard surfaces and wood and may be used on glass and mirrored surfaces as well. The paint floods into a firm, spongelike chiselled tip; keep markers pointed downward so that the paint flows smoothly. The paint dries to a solid acrylic finish and may be used alongside acrylic paints. It does not mix with oil-based paints, which will cause it to smudge.

Deco Paint Markers

The pungent odour of this permanent high-opacity marker will prove that this paint is more than weatherproof. This is the marker to use if you are painting or decorating something that will be primarily outdoors and you want it to last. The paint has the smooth consistency of a classic Sharpie with full coverage and a wide variety of colours for all your artistic needs.

Sanford Uni-Paint Markers

These opaque oil-based markers will give you rich, solid colour that won't fade or wear easily. These markers are very smooth with a high-opacity that can write white on black; the white can be used as a "white-out" marker for projects with white backgrounds. Since this colour completely covers other colours nicely, the possibilities are endless. This product may be used on most solid surfaces, such as metal, glass, plastic or wood.

Sharpie Metallic Markers

These permanent solvent-based markers are more efficient than the Sharpie Paint Markers and work more like paint markers; the silver and gold will cover almost any colour on paper and most hard surfaces, but must be stored with the tip facing down to facilitate the ink flow. This marker handles more like a paint than an ink and is highly prized by many artists.
