Subject says it all…
I’ve tried many different ones.
- White Prismacolor pencil. Doesn’t always show up very well on white paper, but works great on toned or colored paper.
- White Uniball Signo pen, which has surprisingly opaque ink. I find myself using this or the Prisma pencil the most. The Signo is great for fine edge highlights. On the downside, it doesn’t flow evenly and as a result can look splotchy.
- I’ve used Deco Color paint markers but I’ve found them to mix with the other inks on the page. I want to try Molotow and Liquitex.
- Faber Castell Pitt artist pen, white. Works pretty well but the tip is much broader than I like. These are popular in the ID community.
- White paint sharpies were horrible.
- In school we used this white paint (with a tiny brush) that worked well and was super opaque, but I hate using brushes. I can’t remember what it was called.
A combo of:
- white prisma pencil
- white nu pastel chalk
- Molotow acrylic pens
-Uni-ball Signs opaque white ballpoint
All of the above, but I wanted to add I know a guy who uses whiteout
It was just called “ProWhite” and it was okay to use, but honestly we quickly just resorted to white-out and got about the same effect for a lot less money.
We had the same. The paint pens have been a great replacement.
Ah yes! That was it!
Another one I didn’t see on anyone’s list is the Uni Posca. The make multiple thicknesses and the white is nice and opaque:
