Montana is a fantastic creative brand because they actually use their product themselves. The team behind the company formed within graffiti and art cultures and they’re still active artists today. The brand has sky-rocketed thanks to their development in spray can technologies, but also because the Montana lab work alongside world-renowned artists and together they from an amazing collective.
The bond between the street and science has become the backbone of their development, which is evident in all of their products. No gimmicks here, just pure passion and quality.
We absolutely love their acrylic paint markers and they come in 4 different sizes:
The 0.7mm is the smallest nib size and is available in 14 colours- great for smaller detailed work like adding highlights etc.
Next is the most popular (so we have found) which has a 2mm nib and comes in 37 colours; great for drawing and outlining.
The 15mm is the next size up, chunky isn’t the word. Great for doing larger pieces on canvas or walls etc. This one is available in 24 colours.
Finally there’s the 30mm nib, which is a beast of a thing. Again, this one is perfect for larger work.
The paint itself is light-fast, high covering, water- resistant, and abrasion proof, and writes on pretty much all surfaces. It’s solvent free and non-toxic you’ll be glad to hear!
We stock a variety of the 0.7mm, 2mm, and 15mm but if we don’t have the colour or size you’re looking for we can always order them in for you.
The colours of the markers are matched to those of the Montana spray-paints, which is super slick. This means if you’re painting a large area with the shock-blue spray-paint, you can outline or fill in areas with the shock-blue marker and they’ll blend in. Nifty or what?
You can also buy refillable Montana markers, meaning you can purchase an empty marker and a bottle of paint to top it up when you’re running low. Awesome! This has the added bonus of mixing your own colours, which you’ll be able to make over and over again.
We hope that’s given you a better insight about what paint markers are all about. Here’s a couple of local artist who buy them from us. Go check out their work!
Have a great week x
