Since I discovered Uni Posca markers while custom finishing a Kidrobot DIY Munny, I use them whenever I can. They give vibrant colors to almost any object. So when the next Alumide jacuzzi model arrived, I gave it a Uni Posca finishing. I've also used it on WSF, which works great as well.

Here's a link to the original model: http://bit.ly/swjacuzzi2

By the way, I order the markers straight from Japan via eBay. Here's a reliable and fast supplier: http://bit.ly/uniposca

Real neat!
Could you post a close up / macro of the painted material (wsf)?
Are there metalic colors available, too?

So far, I worked with the WSF, Robust and Alumide materials. The ones that are porous - like WSF and Alumide - give the best and fastest results when working with these markers. This will probably apply to the Detail material as well.

The kids did some Uni Posca finishing on the models below. The Christmas ball is WSF and the other two are Robust. WSF looks good after a single finish, whereas the Robust material needs multiple layers for good coverage. The third picture is a close up of the Alumide jacuzzi. And yes, metalic colors exist as well, they have a kind of Alumide look. Plus, you can always give it an additional lacquer finish.

The kids keep using these markers on the printed models. I should ask the SW staff to open an extra "post production" department Wink

So, I was too impatient to order those paint markers...

So I used a highlighter.

it actually worked pretty good. I just "painted" my other iPhone stand with a blue highlighter and that worked pretty well. To get the black, I used a fountain pen. If you use an ink that is super thin like fountain ink, go really really easy on it. It really wanted to bleed everywhere.

If you live in the USA, I found a source where you can buy individual markers. Maybe not cheaper, but good if you just want to try out a few colors. I ordered some this week and they came in only 2 days with $2.50 shipping!
