Guide to Using Posca Markers

Whether natural or synthetic, textiles, fabrics and skins are materials with deep roots in all cultures. They are primarily used for clothing, soft furnishings and decoration. POSCA makes it easy to personalise and customise these everyday materials. What’s more, if you follow POSCA’s fixing advice, you can make your creations permanent.



Shake the marker energetically up and down with the cap on. You will hear the ball inside clicking announcing that the paint colour inside the POSCA marker is being mixed.


Press down on the tip several times on a surface until the tip is filled with paint, then test the flow. If the line is clear, your pen is good to go. It is useful to keep a cloth at hand to clean the tip easily or absorb any excess paint.


If the paint flows less freely during use, shake the marker again without forgetting to put the cap on first to avoid paint projections. Re-prime the tip and off you go again! If the tip becomes damaged, it can be turned round or even replaced with a new tip bought separately.


You can clean the tip under a tap as often as you want, and if it gets quite dry leave it in water overnight. If tyhe tip becomes damaged, it can be turned round or replaced with a new nib.
