    Which pens have the most permanent ink thread

    Someone did a test on which inks were the most "permanent" and smear resistant - would someone please post a link to that thread?

    Thank you in advance.

    It seems like most people have had good luck with getting the ultra-washable Crayola marks off their work.

    In this case, I am wanting marks to stay on the project.

    Yes, this is the one I was looking for. Thank you.

    In an attempt to order the Nano-Liner by Royal & Langnickel (now Royal Brush), I have been finding mixed reviews about this pen.

    It does not seem to be available at Hobby Lobby any more, either.

    The blog was posted November 1, 2015

    I shall continue looking.

    What I am looking for: A pen to add detailing to some blocks that need to be "darkened" - I want this coloring to be permanent . I don't want "darkened" as in tea-dying the whole piece - I just have too much bright yellow that I want to make look more like the other blocks.

    I was doing a throw-away thing that ended up being a keeper. I learned a lot about how pieces will act when one is going to kaleidoscope them. If I had been smarter - and known about the one-block wonder technique at the time - I would have done things differently. Ah - the "not-so-wonderful" learning curve.

    I am not a fan of the micron pens -

    Do any of you have experience with a permanent black marker that you are happy with? I do want it to be permanent, and I want it to be "easy" to write/mark with, and I do not want it to smear when it gets wet.

    I plan to use it with Inktense pencils for this project.

    She didn't use Pentel Fabric Gel Pen which is the best I have ever used. Just like using a regular pen, the ink doesn't run or smear. Very bold. I have washed a sample in hot bleach water many times and it's still looks like new. . Walmart has them online. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pentel-Ge...abric/24592199
    I love my life!

    Cool Pentel fabric pen

    I have done several autograph pens and found the Pentel Fabric Gel Pen to be the best. I ordered mine from Amazon. They are more expensive, but they are great. They do dry up so keep the lid on.
