What can I use to write on resin?

I’m a crafter and I’m looking for some new projects to do. I had an idea that came to me while I was at the craft store: using epoxy resin as a writing surface. The thing is, though, I don’t know if it will work or not!

If you’re looking to write a message on your epoxy resin, there are a few options:

  • Permanent Marker
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie (depending on the type of paint)
  • Paint Pen/Brush/Roller

How do you put writing on resin?

There are several ways you can write on resin, including using a permanent marker. Permanent markers are great for adding simple, quick writing to your project. Here’s how:

  • Use the tip of the marker to write your message on the resin.
  • Let it dry for several hours or overnight before continuing with other steps in your project (like sanding). This will ensure that all of the ink has dried and there aren’t any smudges left behind when you add other layers later on!

How do you write on top of resin?

Most people who work with resin are familiar with the idea of using a marker or pen to write on top of it. This is a great approach and can provide you with a very smooth, glossy surface if you use the right tool.

However, there are more options for drawing and writing on your resin projects!

If you want a bolder look and feel, try painting your design directly onto your project before pouring in the resin. The paint will stick better than any other medium because it’s already been sealed by the clear coat sealant – plus it’ll give your piece an extra punchy look!

You can choose from any kind of paint that comes in a tube: acrylics, oils, and watercolors are all good options! If you’re feeling adventurous (and have plenty of time), try mixing different kinds together to create unique blends that showcase how versatile this material really is–it’s not just limited to white anymore!

There are a few ways you can write on resin. The first is with a sharpie or permanent marker, which will leave an indelible mark.

If you want to be able to erase your writing, try using a paint pen or whiteboard marker. Finally, if you want even finer details and more color options for your writing, use a roller pen instead of a brush.

What kind of marker works on resin?

If you’re looking for a marker that works on resin, then Sharpie paint pens are the best ones to use. They have a thick tip, so they don’t bleed through paper.

However, if you want something more permanent and don’t mind spending a little bit of money on your project, then I would recommend using an oil-based paint marker or a permanent marker like Pilot Varsity or Sharpie Pen.

You can also choose from many other options (such as the Sakura Pigma Micron), but keep in mind that these won’t work well with glass since it’s too absorbent of oil-based materials.
