I love my Tsukinecko pens and pigment paints....the paint sticks are so clever and easy to use and clean up after is a breeze. I also have the pigma pens....both styles....the paint brush tips are wonderful. They can be used to make a very fine line as well as on the side to blend in wide strokes. I have been using these products for over a year. Be sure to keep the Tsukinecko markers on their sides. not stored on end...they will dry out too fast that way. I keep mine in a snap lid box and they are doing just fine...I'd love it if I could refill them somehow....my only complaint.

inks and pens 22 Dec 2009 05:53 #41365

I just ordered the Tsukinkeco markers and inks - hoped I would find them at Hobby Lobby but they had only Dr PH Martin watercolor inks - the clerk said they were the same - but I was unsure so ordere the "T" . Does anyone know if these would work similar - and they had Prisma Pens and they said these would be the same too???
Thanks for any suggestions.

It probably depends on your particular project, but I really like using Fabric Inks with Fantastix applicators. I used them on the "Primarily Jordanne and Jacob" quilt on my profile where I transferred my grandchildren's artwork. The inks seem to last forever, and seem to be much more economical than individual pens.

I want to draw a checkerboard with black markers. Would these fabrico markers be able to accurately mark one? My son drafted a stretched checkerboard that I would not be able to find in a printed fabric and I want to make him an art quilt of his drawing. Thanks for an answer. Jan

I recently went to the Tsukinecko site and then telephoned their customer service. They told me that the markers cannot be restarted once they have dried out.(makes sense, but doesn't make me happy) They say that a marker typically lasts about 6 - 10 months and that made me wonder about how long they stay in the store before you buy them :? :( So I guess I will throw out the "dead" ones and proceed with the fabric painting. I have found a LQS that stocks the Tsukinecko products...that helps when I do run out of a particular color. Thanks for your suggestions ladies....I love that I can ask and receive answers so fast and from some of the nicest people! Karen :D :D

I've had a bunch of them for many years. They haven't dried up on me. I do know you need to keep them horizontal, but I don't know if you can restart them once they're dry.

Though I have little experience with this, I know that Pam Holland uses fabrico markers frequently. I'm sure if you email her with your question, she will offer you help on this. Then, tell us all what you learned, O.K.? Paula :D

Does anyone our there in TQS land use Tsukinecko fabrico markers? I have several and they seem to have dried up - is there any way to re-start the ink flow? I think not, but maybe someone found a way. :(
