I would never have imagined such a sophisticated end result with just a Sharpie!

I have a lot to learn!

u/rmehranfar · 26 pointsr/videos

It seems that only certain permanent markers contain xylene. The King Size Sharpie as well as the Magnum Sharpie do, according to Wikipedia. The marker that they seem to be using is a big metal one like the King Size and Magnum so it is likely that the marker they're using does contain xylene. It also probably contains cresol, which is also very bad. A very large portion of his skin is covered in marker, marker that is likely more harmful than your typical permanent marker. I'd be pretty upset if someone covered a good portion of my body in highly toxic industrial solvents. I'm not a stick in the mud incapable of having fun, if there was an option that was non-toxic and equally as marking I might find the humor in it. I just wish people had more sense to know the harm these things can have on a person's health.

No, those are dry erase markers. You want Wet erase markers for a standard game mat. Any that say 'wet erase' would do. Perhaps ask a teacher or look for a school supply store. These are the kind of markers that were used in older "overhead projectors".

The best ones are Staedtler like these:

This looks like an online retailer that services Chile and has them:

u/ArcOfSpades · 12 pointsr/math

I recommend Staedtler non permanent lumocolor. They dry fast and require a little water to get off, so you won't erase your work by accident. I use it in conjuction with a Scrubby whiteboard notebook.

u/lumberjackben · 11 pointsr/Gunpla

Sharpie Metallic Fine Point Permanent Markers, 3, Colored-1823815

These bad boys! Gold, silver and copper.

u/mememuseum · 11 pointsr/RoastMyCar

Here you go. In case you need to touch up your wheels.

u/BenSharps · 10 pointsr/guns

I don't know anything about SCARS or their triggers but it does look like the trigger could potentially interact with the hammer in that area. Pic. Looks like its a failsafe in case the disconnecter or sear fails. Probably makes the lighter trigger drop safe too. Like you said, its probably not a critical dimension. I'm guessing they cast it to size then take a qualifying cut on it to make sure there isn't an interference there. Its probably a "size minus" tolerance. Yours just happened to have a little extra there and since its finish machined after its coated, you see it.

I wouldn't worry about it either way. You'll never see it in the gun and the trigger should work fine.

If you're really worried about it.

u/MisterValiant · 8 pointsr/transformers

My wife recently got deal on a set of paint pens (she'd had her eye on them for a while and snagged them for like $16), and I decided to try them out. So far they've been working pretty well, good for simple detail work without the cleanup of brushes. For Ironhide I went in on the inside of his windshield, and all in all I think he turned out okay, although I do think I did much better with Prime.

u/show_me_the_math · 7 pointsr/arcteryx

If you're going to do this user a fabric marker. They shouldn't bleed and can be applied again. Their downside is that if you are writing with it on fabric sometimes the writing is hard to read.

Sharpie Rub-A-Dub Permanent Laundry Marker Fine Black - Pack of 1

u/gl1tch · 6 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

It appears to be a Sharpie King Size which I think only comes in Black, Red, and Blue.

u/asciiaardvark · 6 pointsr/fountainpens

Me too.

When I was in school, I only used mechanical pencils. But now I don't mind the un-erasability of ink and basically only use fountain pens. I do find that dip pens help me focus on the act of writing, so I use them for calligraphy practice.

The only ball-point I use is a space-pen, which works on waterproof paper so I can take notes while kayaking.

> I still love gel and felt tipped pens

Did you know Sharpie makes a brush tip? It's a surprisingly flexible felt-ish substance; I keep one for writing on plastic/glass/metal. Fun fact: on non-porous surfaces like metal & most plastic, Sharpie is wet-erase with solvents like alcohol & acetone :)

u/Madgvox · 6 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

Ballpoint pens are the pencils of the ink world. You can build up darkness with a ballpoint pen like you would a pencil. The reasons against using ballpoint -- at least at first -- are the same reasons Uncomfortable outlined in the above article, especially the third point (everything is black and white - there are no gradients to complicate matters).

At least at first (for the homework), you should use felt tip for all the reasons mentioned. As you go into further lessons, and line/ellipse practice becomes a small daily routine, using ballpoint is probably a good idea as those exercises tend to kill pens.

However any practice is better than no practice, so if you're unable to get a felt tip for whatever reason, that's not a reason to stop practicing.

PS if you're concerned about price, get some ultra fine point sharpies. They're very cheap and will give you the benefits of using a felt tip. The trade-off is a poor ink quality, which you don't care about for these exercises anyway.

u/jimbozinoh · 5 pointsr/FellowKids

Meh, some iron ons or a fabric marker should do the trick.

u/Alyathea · 5 pointsr/3DS

best markers I've found are POSCA paint markers.

I would do a light sanding with 800 grade sand paper on them, prime them with the backing color you want, and let it dry. Then you can draw on them and clear coat.

I recommend doing it this way, as sometimes if you don't prep the plate first the clear coat can have weird effects.

The items I've used:

The primer you can use black/white/any color for backing, and I use the same brand in a clear matte finish for the clear coat.

u/loganyobo2 · 5 pointsr/EDC

Sharpie sells regular, black, point-tipped (if that's a thing) sharpies in a metal casing. Keep the casing, buy refills

[here] (

u/cthulhubert · 5 pointsr/EDC

The core material EDC, to me would be knife, light and cellphone. But cool keychain gidgets are really nice too.

So I'd say if you have a knife, a good flashlight would be next, then a backup knife and light (one is none, two is one). I like a multi-tool or SAK for my backup knife, and a keychain light for my backup torch.

(In case you're curious, after that I start considering footwear, gloves, hats and other clothing.)

(Sorry, I'm feeling a bit lazy, so you'll have to live with bare links.)

This one is pretty popular for keychain use:

Fenix has single AA and 123 powered lights that are well regarded and compact:

There are a lot of other brands worthy of consideration too, of course (Fourseven's mini, Jetbeam, Klarus, Zebra, just to name a few).

There are also a lot of much larger but more capable flashlights out there.

Keychain stuff is always nice:
I use these sliver grippers way more than I thought I would. The convenience of always having them around is unparalleled:
I've been thinking of getting this, I'm a little leery about that much stuff for so little cost though:
I love this style of keyring, but it's way cheaper on eBay:
Little one-piece keychain tools have become really popular, and I really like having a little prying and screwing tool always present.
The Gerber Shard is cheap but probably at least worth what you pay for it:
This one has a bit more functionality, and is made of the magically delicious titanium:

Keychain multi-tools can be good.
Here's one from Gerber:
Supposedly the build quality isn't as good as Leatherman's though:

I'd also recommend looking for a glow in the dark lanyard.

A pen you can EDC is another "you're surprised how often you use it" item. I have an Inka and it's definitely alright, though a bit fiddly:
The biggest competitor is the classic Fisher Bullet Space Pen:

Something to write on is nice. I'm a real child of the digital age, but I still like having an analog recording medium on me. I prefer Pentalic's pocket size books to Moleskine's. They're a little thicker, but they have a flexible cover, and are usually cheaper. Here's one: but I don't know if it's ruled or grid or what. I also prefer a bright color cover to make it easy to spot.

Continuing on the writing stuff matter, a sharpie and/or a metallic (ink) sharpie are nice to have. You can get sharpies with stainless steel cases too, which feel nicer to hold, and you're a little less likely to forget somewhere.
Black (dozen):
Stainless Steel:

I think everybody should carry some sort of bandanna. I carry an off-brand buff (tubular bandanna) and an olive drab shemagh.

I like to carry a small baggie of what I call MacGuyver goods. Paracord (bound up in a hanayawa right now), some gorilla tape and electrical tape wrapped around a card, super glue, a sewing kit, zip ties, twist ties, rubber bands, safety pins, binder clips, and a few 1 quart ziplock freezer bags. (Like hell I'm finding links for all of those.)

Yet another "surprising how useful it turns out to be" item is a small mirror:

Whistles are useful for warning people of fire or danger, or calling for help, so I like to carry one:

A monocular is fun to have on your person. This particular model is really great because of its super low minimum focusing distance, which lets you use it as a sort of loupe. In regular mode it's good for looking for house numbers or your car in a parking lot, that sort of thing:

I think that's all I could come up with off the top of my head.

Yep, here is the set that I used. The excess wipes off pretty easy with the thumb.

Um. Frankly? Stubbornness. I'm really bad about drawing daily as well though. Do you have a job where you idle a lot? When I worked in a call center, I just brought a sketchbook and pens with me and it gave me something to do with my hands. Really depends on your personality a lot too. If you're a structured person, maybe blocking out a set amount of time where you say, "I will draw for 45 minutes / hour." Also setting yourself mini-goals can help as well. Don't think of getting better at art as something you have to do all at once.

For me, I have sketchbooks that are kind of literally just full of studies. Like, okay, I'm going to draw 500 hands. (It starts out as a good idea but generally ends up being around 300 hands haha. 500 hands is pretty ridiculous. Start with like 50 or even 25.) This will take me a long time and it won't be the only thing I'll draw, but I'll complete 500 hands by x date. Also small incentives like, if I finish 500 hands by x date, then I will do y thing that I have wanted.

My brain doesn't work like this, though. I have severe ADHD and absolutely no internal reward system or self-control. For me I draw because if I don't I turn into a miserable flaming wreck of a human being. Ritalin has been helping with this but I have only been taking it for about a week. I'll let you know if it helps with consistency as time goes on.

There is no magic. Find something you love to draw - something you can't help but not draw. Maybe characters from your novel, maybe Sailor Moon, maybe Avatar the Last Airbender, or, heck, even fursonas or something. Find a thing you love to draw. Now draw that thing. Note where the weaknesses of your art are, learn to identify them or ask someone who can help you to do so. Then, learn a compartmentalized thing to work on, be it hands, feet, eyes, facial structure, anything.

I will also recommend an AWESOME subreddit called /r/sketchdaily - these guys do a topic a day, and you do a sketch a day on that theme. It spares you from going "ohgodwhatdoIdraw?" There are a tonne of resources and stuff on that page too.

Okay, so, here's some encouraging news. You're not in a bad starting place whatsoever. Like, really. This is actually pretty cool. You're showing that you've got some of the fundamentals of the body down, you're showing weight and mass through some basic shading and your line weight. Your lines are pretty careful and intentional and you've tried to convey emotion and even tension in the figure through her pose and her facial expression. Cool stuff. These are good details. If you like, I can redline it (draw lines over it to show you where things could be adjusted) - but you've actually got a pretty solid grasp on anatomy. I really like that the character has an unusual body shape and I love her hair.

To me, it basically it looks like you started maybe from anime or western cartoons and then tried to merge it into a more realistic style. Here's Sycra talking about styles! (All of his videos are super super super awesome. Go absorb them, they helped me out a lot:

I used to be really vehemently against anime for people starting out because it teaches a lot of bad habits, but tbh, draw what makes you happy, but don't ONLY draw anime or western comics. Young artists start out by drawing "symbols" of things. Like on your character's eyes here. You know sorta what the shape of an eye is, where it kinda goes on the face, but that's not what an eye looks like, and you know that and I know that. That is a "symbol" for an eye. Symbol drawing is super common and I do it too! So, to get away from that...? REFERENCE EVERYTHING If you wanna draw people, you have to know how they're put together and how everything depends on itself in terms of muscles and skeletal structure. My friend Sakky is a stock artist and she does great work for pose references:

Looks like you're working in gimp or SAI? (Photoshop's line tapering is butt so, if you're using Photoshop good goddamn nice.) So, I'm sorry, but I have to tear you away from the computer. What I usually tell people who are learning / starting out, is to put down the tablet and go pick up a sketchbook. Get the crappiest thing you can get - some kind of grade school spiral bound newsprint level 50lb paper thing. Seriously. The first thing is letting your brain relax about "not wasting media" because a cheap 2 dollar sketchbook isn't anything special. Get some Prismacolour Ebony drawing pencils and a decent eraser. Then, get yourself a Sharpie pen - one of the ones that doesn't bleed. These will be your tools from now on. These will be your tools for a long while before you get back to the tablet.

Canson makes good quality paper that won't frustrate you and 9x12 is a good starting space. Don't go any smaller for awhile. Noteably, Cheap Joes is an awesome site for budget art supplies, their student / house brand stuff is pretty class as well.

(Also I recommend Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain as a great starting place for doing / learning art. It's written in a very straightforward fashion that shows you not only how to draw, but how to think and see as an artist as well. (Here's a PDF copy:([] I learned to draw from this book and I've recommended it to just about everyone who I've met who wanted to learn to draw. It basically guides you through the fundamentals and then lets you fly free a bit on some other things.

SO YEAH. SORRY ABOUT THAT. Of course if anything needs clarifying, feel free to let me know. Thanks for sticking with me through all of that. I'll be streaming on my twitch stream later today for fun to get back into some sketching habits, so if you'd like, come by and say hello!

u/timschmidt · 3 pointsr/EDC
u/sos8balla · 3 pointsr/Sneakers

I use these. They come in a few different sizes so I have 3 or 4 sets. Before you apply paint to Canvas shoes you need to prep them with gesso or a textile medium so your colors don't bleed. When I finish painting I spray them with krylon clear coat or matte depending on the look I'm going for.

u/sparklybirthdaypants · 3 pointsr/gardening

I’m an avid rock painter and can help. Acrylic paint is best. Also, Posca pens are awesome for finer details.

u/Demetrius3D · 3 pointsr/EDC

That's pretty cool! You do know you can get them in stainless steel, though.

edit: If you could do a mini Sharpie in brass, though... I'd pay you decent money!

u/kassablaze · 3 pointsr/PenmanshipPorn
u/El_Paz · 3 pointsr/mtgaltered

I don't alter with paint yet, but I hope to some day. I'm not good enough yet. Instead, I use Sharpies.

A lot of my best minimal alters start with erasing away ink (amazingly, pencil erasers get rid of 80-90% of ink) followed by ultra-fine-tip sharpies (get the 24-pack).

The tough part with erasing is not to erase too much, leaving white space where you wanted something to end. (for an example, look at the wing tip on my Birds of Paradise here.) If you have access to pure acetone, try it, but wear gloves and work in a well-ventilated area. Remember: nail polish remover is not pure acetone.

The tough part with sharpies is color-matching. You can blend ink a little if you draw two colors right next to each other and rub them with a moist napkin. (For an example, look at the shadow on the Bonesplitter in the same link above.)

Metallic ink pens can be surprisingly useful if you want to make something a little shiny. The blade of the Bonesplitter is colored over with a "copper" pen, and the effect is pretty nice.

If you only have one big black Sharpie, try this.

White-out is tough to deal with - very blotchy.

Regardless of what you use, test your materials on a chimney imp or storm crow first. (I practiced extending the legs on Flameborn Virion - surprisingly difficult for color-matching and detail.)

u/SPBCS · 3 pointsr/fakeid

If you're gonna use a sharpie, use the ultra fine tip ones. Never use thick sharpies.

Snapchat sigs come out the best. Some signature apps make the pic was too low res.

u/zz_x_zz · 3 pointsr/boardgames

I'm not a painter at all so I took somebody's advice on BGG, primed everything black and then basically drew on the color with these paint pens. The one I used I think was either a eight or ten pack but they worked brilliantly and, apart from being time consuming, I ended up with something pretty nice. The raised lines on the gear keeps the surface tension of the paint from spilling off in most cases and it really just becomes an exercise in tracing lines with a steady hand.

I'm away from home for the week so I can't snap you a picture but if you're curious I can send you one next week so you can see how it came out.

u/BobbyTrosclair · 2 pointsr/FulfillmentByAmazon

If you want to remove the labels quickly and cleanly, run a heat gun over them for a few seconds and they peel right off. I usually either remove any sticker with a bar code or redact with a big-ass Magnum Sharpie.

u/HappySack15 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Put a nice little golden stripe using Testors Paint. Then my two kills I drew with a golden sharpie pen.

u/aglaeasfather · 2 pointsr/medicalschool

Hi, Actual M2 here.

Everyone will tell you something different. Only way to know what works for you is to actually do it, so be proactive.

That said, don't start studying for Step until 2nd year.

Let me repeat: don't start studying for Step until 2nd year. You simply will not have the knowledge base to do anything productive. Also, likely 50-60% or more of what you learn in your M1 is useless.

You want to do well? Here's what you do:

Whole Year:

Listen to Goljan while you are learning Path. Just do it. The more times you listen by the time you get to boards, the better. Pathoma also helps a TON.

First Semester: Not too much going on here. The real meat of the boards is what you learn in M2, aka what you are learning right now. This is mostly prep time. Get a copy of First Aid. They always publish errata because FA is full of mistakes (don't get me started), so go through the book and make the corrections. Also, get that shit spiral bound at Kinkos, motherfucker.

Near the end of Semester 1, start going through the sections you have already learned, i.e. if you did Micro/Immuno in M1/1st half M2, go over that shit. But don't do it passively. I found DIT to be really helpful for this purpose, because it 1) gives you goals to achieve (i.e. I will do x number of videos today) and 2) fills in the gaps of FA (there are many). YMMV. A note about DIT these guys are from Texas, and idk if it's a Texas thing or if it's a DIT thing but they talk slow as HELL. If you have an iPad, get Swift Player and crank that bitch up to 1.65x when you're watching videos.

Second Semester: Do the same thing, but now step it up. Ideally, get a first pass of FA done by Spring break, and start a QBank. NOW LISTEN CLOSELY it is PERFECTLY A-OK to get a 30% when you first start. I made the mistake of thinking "oh fuck I don't know shit I need to do FA more". Baloney. Keep at it. You learn a ton while doing Qs.

After Spring Break Keep going through FA, turn up the juice on your QBanks. Try to do maybe 1-2 sets (46 qs)/week. The idea is that you will have likely 1/2 of your QBank left by the time you're done with finals.

After Finals High Gear mode activated. Start with a NBME to gauge where your status. Also, from UWorld you will know exactly what your strengths and weaknesses are. Focus on these. Make a third pass through FA. Finish your QBank. Fine Tune. Go over EBM/Biostats the day before the exam. Take the exam. Fuck bitches and drink Cristal. Relax. Enjoy your summer. In that order, please.

Best Resources if you follow this method:

  1. First Aid
  2. UWorld QBank
  3. Goljan
  4. DIT (It's expensive but they do this to keep the pirates at bay so it's justified)
  5. Pathoma
  6. These Mother Fuckers (because FA is stupid and prints their book on paper where every goddamn pen smears like you just sliced open an fucking AAA).
  7. Swift Player for iOS (optional)
  8. Highlighters
  9. Party plan for post-Step 1.

    I think you'll find this to be super helpful. I sure did, wish I had found it earlier.

    Good luck, and for the love of God enjoy your summer and the coming year.

    Remember, everyone's method differs, but no matter what method you use, as you are working at it you are improving your score. Eventually you'll find the most comfortable method for you.

    Edit: one last thing: get a PDF version of FA wherever you can find it. The "index" sucks absolute sweaty dog balls, so the PDF is the best way to search for stuff.

    Edit 2: Clarity in the preamble
u/Xuis · 2 pointsr/longboarding

The process I used is as follows:

First, I cleaned off the bottom of my board using a wet rag. After letting it dry, I laid a lengthy strip of gaffers tape down the middle of the board, making sure it was directly in the center from truck-to-truck.

I then laid parallel strips to either side, slightly overlapping the center strip of tape. I then repeated the process making sure that the overlaps were symmetrical to either side, and that the final side pieces lined up with the edge (rail) of the board. The overlaps don't need to be the same size, it just looks nice.

At this point, there will be tape hanging off the front and back of the board. I placed two shorter pieces of gaffers tape perpendicular to the original strips at the ends of the board (directly next to the trucks), and then used a knife to carefully cut off the tape that was hanging off the board.

After that, I drew on it with a silver sharpie.

I'm sure this would have been easier without the trucks attached, then I could have made it go all the way to the kicks. The great thing about gaffers tape, is that it doesn't leave residue like duct tape.

tl;dr: Put tape on the board so it looks nice, cut off the excess, then draw on it.

I have this fucker and dont let it out of my sight. If someone needs to borrow it i stand there awkwardly until they give it back.

Sad story happy ending, i bent over to pick something up as i was getting on the elevator (our store room is in the basement) one day and my pocket protector spilled and my sharpie rolled right into the crack. About a month later theres a guy there fixing the elevator button that my boss cracked hitting it with the corner of a hotel pan he was taking down to the basement, i asked him if it would be a big deal to retrieve something that had fallen down the shaft. He asks what and i tell him. He reaches into his tool kit and pulls out my sharpie! He said he found it down there like 2 weeks beforehand. Totally made my day.

Assuming you want to avoid adult oriented things - and thing that may be considered shady.

I am also assuming your computer is a laptop or relatively mobile.

My suggesting involves a form of selling. First you must pick a subject that you know very well and then think about questions and answers a novice would have.

For example, I know computers/Internet well. Things a novice might ask are:

  1. How can I set up my gmail/yahoo mail/outlook account so it checks mail in other accounts?
  2. How can I set up my gmail/yahoo mail/outlook so that email certain emails are automatically deleted?
  3. How can I see what programs are using the most memory on my computer
  4. How do I backup my computer?
  5. How can remotely view my home computer desktop from my iPhone?
  6. Etc. etc.

    Come up with a nice long list of questions and solutions. The idea provide quick/succinct computer advice.

    Buy a folding table, folding chair, poster boards, markers, and cookie jar.

    Create Signs:

    Computer Questions Answered! - FREE

    Ask me about Computers - FREE QUICK LESSONS

    Quick Computer Solutions - FREE

    Got an Internet Question? FREE answers

    Pack the computer, table, signs and jar into your car and find a spot with high foot traffic. This could be a downtown street, near public transportation, entrance to your neighborhood, community function (street fair, swap meet), the beach, etc.

    Once you pick your spot, setup shop. Unfold the table, chair and put up your posters. Get the jar out, take off the top and affix a piece of paper that kindly asks for donations. Be ready to demonstrate you solutions on your computer.

    Here is what will happen:

There are pens that aren't designed to be tactical, but are sturdy enough to be used as a kubotan, e.g. stainless steel Sharpie. I don't think any TSA agent would take a Sharpie from you.

u/MrCrono666 · 2 pointsr/Gameboy

Heh, I'll admit that I've been rude with such information and that was wrong of me.

I was wronged before, but that's no way to act towards other. I do sincerely apologize, I believe it was in regards to my paint techniques and sealants?

Let me share properly, with easy links! :D

I live by Krylon products, they're the best spray paints for using Posca Paint pens on. My most used Krylon products are:

-Krylon Chalky Finish

-Krylon Short Cuts these are a bit glossy so far, and haven't tested them with the paint pens yet. Will post once I do! Also do SUUUPER LIGHT COATS as it will bubble and look like crap, they aren't meant for plastic :D

-U-Pol Products 0796 Clear CLEAR#1 High Gloss Coat - 450ml for sealant You can apply a fresh coat after 1 hour, gives enough time for it to "cure" and allows you to see how much more you need! I do 3-4 coats for a super glossy finish! :D

-Posca paint pens for drawing me and my wife both live by these things, they're absolutely fabulous.

Again, I do sincerely apologize. We're all human behind these screen names and letters, surrounded by digital information and electricity. I'm no different, and prone to making mistakes.

Hope that helps make things a little better. Cheers man! Again, congrats on a gorgeous system.

To show my true honesty and being sorry, if you send me your system I'll backlight and bivert it - plus ship it back to you for free.

It's not all about the work and business, it's about making good friendships along the way. PM Me if you're interested bro.

u/daintyflower · 2 pointsr/bindingofisaac

Paper: For the clear paper, I've recently been using an acetate alternative called Dura-Lar by Grafix. They USED to carry them at Michaels but you are more likely to find them at locally owned art stores. Link: [Clear Acetate Paper]{

Pen: Next, you'll need an Ultra Fine Sharpie in black (Extra Fine is also acceptable if you can't find Ultra). This will trace the pattern on your paper without smudging it. Link: Ultra Fine Sharpie Permanent Marker

Brushes: You'll also need paint brushes! If you look at the link provided after this, the brown brushes on the left side of the picture are perfect for dabbing in larger areas. The brushes on the right are great for getting into sharp corners or tiny spaces (which these BOI ones did). You don't need this specific set, art stores will have individual brushes that'll work great. Get 5 or so in different sizes. Paint Brushes

Last but not least, you'll want a wide assortment of Acrylic paints. Brands like Cermacoat, FolkArt and Deco-Art Americana are perfect because they're thick enough and vibrant enough. You really want to get a lot of different colors since some you can't mix and match accurately. Link:Cermacoat Acrylic Paint

I'm really bad at explaining things, so here's a YouTube video with the steps (you can fastforward a lot): How to make cel animation

Tips and more thoughts: Trace you design (you'll probably need to go over it twice to make it dark), flip over the acetate and dab the in paint. Dabbing is important because it leaves it thick and doesn't create streaks. Colors will dry lighter or darker, so you can either remove wet paint with a napkin or dry paint by using your fingernail to scrape it off in the specific area. It's okay if you go outside the lines because you can use your nail to push paint back into the right spot.

Hold up the cel to the light and you can see where the paint is thin and needs another coat. Dab in more paint until you cannot see through it when you hold it up.

For the Isaac cells, I drew in all the shaded areas and removed the marker lines with a wet toothpick or hard part of a Q-Tip. Rub it into the marker area and it'll disappear, leaving only the shaded paint:
Polyphemus without the lines removed

Hmm, what else? Oh, use wood toothpicks to paint in sharp corners. It makes them precise and nice-looking if you're removing some lines later!

And finally, a few pictures of progress:
A few cels painted in black and waiting to dry

Dark Bum after he was drawn... if you think that looks weird, you should have seen Polyphemus

Dark Bum almost looks happy to be painted in

Finished the black paint and flipping him over!

If you have any other questions, let me know! Like I said, I'm really bad at explaining things and I've been doing this for a really long time, so I tend to forget to explain steps. These are great for kids to make, and make nice gifts to be framed. They can be quick to make, or take a really long time. The most complex one I made was the album cover to "The Resistance" by Muse and took 6 months and over 100 hours to complete.

u/Robot_xj9 · 2 pointsr/ADHD

As users have commented below, it is illegal to carry prescription drugs outside of their intended container.

A pillbox is a great idea if you're taking XR or something in the morning, before you leave your home, but otherwise, I would advise against it.

What I would suggest instead is getting small zip lock bags, labeling them with each week (I assume you have a 1 month supply) using a permanent marker, (the industrial sharpies work best, as regular sharpie tends to rub off the zip lock material.) putting them in the zip lock bags and then putting the ziplock bags into the prescription bottle.

This way you can pull out this week's bag and quickly count, for example, pulling out this week's bag from my bottle shows that I have 5 pills left, 1 for today, 2 for tomorrow, and 2 for friday. So I must have taken my pill this morning. (I already knew that, but you get the logic)

This is what works for me. It's easy, it's useful, and it's not illegal. Now, granted even if you put your pills in a ziplock in your pocket and walked around all day the chances of you getting thrown into jail for that is slim to none, but on the off chance you are searched by an officer for some reason, hey, it happens, you probably want to be safe, rather than sorry.

However the thing about productivity tips, especially when it comes to people with ADHD is that everyone is different, this method may not work for you, but I hope at least it was thought provoking enough for you to find one that does.

u/gregisonfire · 2 pointsr/headphones

I can vouch for this. Used Sharpie and my girlfriend thought I bought another pair of headphones. Used one of these to make sure the ink didn't come off.

Final result looks like this

Enjoy the cans, they were my first pair of good headphones and now I'm hooked.

u/SquaresAre2Triangles · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

You can take them apart by just drilling out the rivets, and I just use spray paint for the base color. You can use some kind of paint stripper (can grab some from your local hardware store or walmart, but something like this) to remove the paint that is on there if you want, but it's not completely necessary, just make sure you do light coats of spray paint so it sticks nicely.

For the details I use paint pens but you could probably use any paint with fine paint brushes.

Then i finish with a glossy enamel clear coat spray, and just be careful not to spray it on too thick or it can make the paint run or bubble up a bit.

Aside from just "how to do it" some tips:

  • It's easy and even if you just want to paint it a solid color it's totally worth it. I haven't done any hot wheels mods before this and my first couple still turned out great.
  • You can always strip the paint again and start over if something gets screwy
  • Wait like a full day between the main painting steps (base coats, wait a day, detail work, wait a day, clear coat) just to make sure it's all good and dry
  • Use gloves when you are doing the detail painting so that oils from your hands don't mess up the base paint
  • I use some clips like this to hold them up. What works great is putting one of the posts from the body of the car into the round hole on the clip, and then clipping it onto a toilet paper tube. Works great as a little handle and stand.
u/Det40oz · 2 pointsr/hockeyjerseys

Definitely white. and as /u/MensLeagueGretzky stated, that crest will fill up quick. And if the guys sign small to accommodate the full team, their signatures might look cramped and shittier than they would otherwise be if given the whole front of the jersey to sign.

And black sharpie wouldn't look that bad over blue, but white is just an ideal option for a signed jersey.

Personally I would also just leave the crest clean, but that's up to you. Maybe save it for the bigger names on the team or if you have the chance down the line for legends like Potvin, Trottier, etc.

Or just let Rick Dipietro slaughter it with the thickest sharpie available on the market

Unless you just wanted the current roster on it, which is understandable.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

Sharpie pen, not to be confused with the Sharpie ultra fine permanent markers. They are not the same ink as the permanent markers, but do have the same ultra fine point. They do not bleed, and they write like a dream. I have shitty handwriting, and these pens make it legible.

I played Warhammer Fantasy before they killed it, so I had my share of painting miniatures and thought the same as you. Then I read where someone used fine-tipped sharpies to "color" their fighters, and I tried it out and it's awesome and easy and so much less messy. I bought these:

I don't do any kind of basecoat, just immediately start drawing on the fighters out of the box and it looks good enough.

Gearward Compact Survival Cord Mini, 25’

Tucked inside the folds of the cord are: a micro neodymium magnet, a pen spring, a small safety pin.
Have actually used this for: fishing some ladies keys from a grate at the school before the janitor could show up. Also repaired a neighbour’s skate lace with the cord.

Night Ize Inova thumb light (three functions, bright, medium, flash)
Have actually used this for finding a lost earring in a dark movie theatre. Thought I would use it to find the locks on my house and car, but everything is pretty well lit.

Stanley Key Chain Tape Measure
Have actually used this for buying a new sideboard from an antique shop. Knew the measurements of the room and used this to determined it wouldn’t fit in that room. LOL.

Nite Ize inka Mobile Pen
Have actually used this tons of times whether someone doesn’t have a pen, or for myself at the passport office or recently at the lawyer’s office.

Prime-Lite 5-1 Multifunction Keychain with Light
A new addition. I like the full sized Phillips screwdriver bit. Has a flashlight. Used it to open the bottom of my son’s new RC car’s battery compartment. Has a knife, too. Good for package opening. Not much else.

[Nite Ize DoohicKey Keychain Multitool]
Actually used this recently to pry open my frozen gas cap cover.

[Mini Bic Lighter]
To light cigs, mostly. Haven’t needed to start any urban fires. But… I wrapped over it a thin layer of [To-Go Gorilla Tape] ( and generic electrical tape at the base. [I interwove the electrical tape through a generic (plastic coated) paperclip so that it acts as a keychain. Haven’t lost one yet.]. I used the duct tape recently when a poster fell down at my kids’ Christmas recital and I was able to peel a few pieces off for the teacher to put it back up.

[Mini Sharpie Marker]
Used it recently to write a nasty note to a jerk who dinged my car. Also to get an autograph on a menu of an actor you’ve probably never heard of, but who was big growing up in Toronto.

[Generic Folding Travel Scissors]
Sharper than I expected. I recently used this to save the day when my son refused to wear his new Christmas sweater for a family picture because the tags were itching his back. Snip. Problem solved.

[Gerber Dime Micro Tool]
Good to have this as it has pliers, but I haven’t used it other than to pull yellow lego heads out of lego helmets.

[Nite Ize Key Rack Locker]
A good way to keep it all together. These clips don’t lose their… clippieness.

This is the basic one but you can also get more detailed ones. As well as the mat with two different tones on each side I found the two tone flip mat to be more than enough most of the time but I also got the multi terrain pack for more niche uses.

I use these pens. The paizo site claims you can use permanent markers and I'm sure it works fine but wet erase markers are just so perfect, no smudge easy wipe off.

A word of warning the maps do fold down so there are very obvious creases in the mats when you lay them out so make sure you chuck some books on them for a bit before the game starts. We normally just pile our dnd books on top until we need to use it.

Make sure to check out amazon or w/e because these mats are often sold as cheap if not cheaper on their. Also Paizo shipping can be quite a bit depending on where you live!

Somebody suggest to use this knife:

Here's my new setup:


Any dynomighty wallet, just pick a design

Car keys (whatever your carkeys are). If you want a USB stick added on to your keys, use a Micro-HDMI for low profile and convenience


Iphone6, Samsung S6, etc etc. Whatever floats your boat

Pick a small battery charger, search for it on amazon:

Get a retractable cable for your charger if you need too (low profile)

JEAN COIN POCKET (on front right pocket)

That gerber fold up knife

RIGHT MOST JEAN STRAP ( was the front right before)


duck tape

Tape planet had the cheapest prices at $1.54 each


Measuring tape. This one has the lowest profile so it doesn't hurt to sit on, 10' is good enough for almost everything


Get sticky notes, I suggest highland brand 3"x3" since it works for nearly everything you might need sticky notes. I suggest getting both, alternate colors by day

Plain yellow:


Also, get a sharpie too. Fine points are good

Alternatively or ultra fine


that's my current setup

u/Loser_Bug · 1 pointr/JournalingIsArt

Honestly, most of my journals only have 5-10 sentences per page. I do a lot of collage, drawing, and abstract painting.

Here's what I suggest:

Buy some cheap liquid watercolors and some [sponges] ( You can do backgrounds on every page before you start. This helped me build the habit of nightly journaling, and removed the fear of "ruining" a page. Any parts that I didn't like I could collage over!

Start using your own photos as much as possible. One of the easiest ways to do an image transfer is to alter an image on the computer, then print it out on an ink jet printer. I use cheap-ass photo paper for this, while the photo is fresh. Spray it with water, then put face-down and rub it into the page. (A rubber brayer is nice, but a used gift card or other hard object would be fine.)

Did you know that you can buy bulk stickers from [Amazon???] (

I also suggest making a to-go bag. If you make your backgrounds at the beginning of the week, or before you start the journal, this makes it extra easy. Mine has:

  1. [paint markers] (
  2. a few of [these] ( and [these] (
  3. Ephemera (usually from my obnoxious amount of magazine subscriptions, my own drawings, and things I find)
  4. Glue sticks. Lots of folks here are interested in archival quality glue, but I just use Elmer's.

    I often use my journal to annotate from books (I used to do it INSIDE the books, but I found them difficult to read with any new clarity that way, and I'm trying to move to digital.) Since I mostly read self-help/improvement books, that made some great starting points for prompts.

One of the guys bought a boatload of the minis from just about every set. I think he even got a bunch on clearance.

A sharpie laundry marker ordered it off amazon and it got here so so I figured I’d put it to use

Warning: I'm a pen freak. I love pens for some reason.

My favorite pens!

these pens, because colors!

and sharpies for making labels!

They make taking notes 1,000 times better! Plus, all my professors now know me by my colored pens :)

Back to cool :)

I need these for a mother's day school project for my little sister. I also really love colorful markers. EDIT The markers might not make it in time for mother's day so I found this case since my ipad case is literally falling apart and I need a new one.

Acquiring blanks/labels

Mailing labels: If you're in the US, go down to your local USPS and pick up a stack of these, they're free. You can go after hours when just the lobby is open if you don't want to be asked why you're taking the whole stack.

You can go down to Staples or wherever and find some "Hello my name is" labels.

Check out Egg Shell Stickers if you want to go all out.

Sign up at DHL to order huge quantities of blank label rolls.

Get creative. Anything that is a label can be painted over. You could find scraps of vinyl, too.

Markers and Pens

Decocolor has always been my fav paint marker.

Sharpie also makes some good paint pens. Be mindful of water-based vs. oil-based if you live in a city with weather.

Uni's Posca pens are also great.


Again be mindful, if you use acrylics they'll run in the rain. You could use spray paint and stencils, or just paint for your backgrounds.

it's not stainless, sorry it's plastic, <> here's an example. You see the top bit that looks like a circumcised alien penis? That little bit there is detachable and often detaches accidentally leaving it attached to your keys and the marker on the ground somewhere.

things you break always work perfectly fine after
