This round tipped marker is great for details, and can be used alongside the others to create bold and striking artwork with extremely delicate details. Amsterdam Acrylic Markers are also available in a Metallic Set of 3, an Intro Set of 4, a Starter Set of 6 and Reflex Set of 4.
How do Amsterdam Acrylic Markers work?
Amsterdam Acrylic Markers need to be shaken well before each use, but the lid must be kept on whilst shaking to avoid spilling or flicking the ink. On first use of these markers, simply shake well, remove the cap and pump the nib until the colour appears on the nib. Pump the markers softly a few more times until the ink becomes clean on the paper. Always remember not to over-pump the nibs as this can cause flooding in the nib and cap.
