Crayola Supertips Art Markers

Updated on September 28, 2010

Crayola Supertip Art Markers

 The Crayola Supertip art markers are some of the cheapest art markers around and quite flexible to color too, as the supertips really are quite super with their almost paintbrush like quality. As usual with the Crayola range, these Supertip markers blend quite well with one another and the pens grip quite well much like a thin pencil, although different to the chunkier Crayola Broad markers, the color lays down differently on the paper and you can change the angle of your supertip markers to create different line weights which looks quite effective on a drawing.

If you are coloring in a sketchy style like I am in the following Crayola demonstration video, then you can achieve some great results with your own drawings and color work.

I own a few packs of the supertips and I always seem to buy the one with 12 markers in the pack, maybe it's a superstitious thing, but I never ever buy one with more in, as I usually buy two packs of 12 at a time....maybe because I is strange I don't know. Hording art materials and equipment is a good thing right?

The Crayola Supertips are ideal for intricate color work or quick drawing or even writing and they are cheap enough if they dry out to buy some more.

Like I said in the following video I go through coloring one of my skull drawings, quite quickly and I like the way that you can blend the colors too as I was experimenting with the red, orange and yellow supertips, the yellow seemed to help to blend the other two colors more when laid over the top of them.

The paintbrush like qualities of the Crayola Supertips are apparent when you start to color as the tip of the markers flex when you press hard and so I think experiemnting with differenbt line weights and ways of angling the pen to suit your way of coloring could be a great idea as you create different effects, such as feathering and quite details but careful cross hatching of layered colors.

I think more experimentation is needed with these cheap but quality art markers...watch the video and decide for yourself if these supertip art markers will be right for you or your kids to use.

I think they will be!

      Hey Cheers there Robert!

      I did another one with Crayola crayons on a Halloween pumpkin and the end result was something similar. I find coloring is just as good if you be quick and almost sketchy with your art markers.

      Wow, these really are very cheap! I haven't seen those ones before, but seeing how you handle them is striking. I can see why you stick with the twelve color packs because your style maximizes the use of a simple limited palette. You used only four colors in this fiery burning devil skull - and yet your use of reserved white, your loose sketching and excellent design made that more powerful than if you'd had a dozen shades of orange in between.

      When the final version of a project is the print, lightfastness is not an issue. You can always print out something like that with archival inks if you want to preserve it forever - or get it as a tattoo that's pretty lasting. I feel as if I learned something about coloring on this one. Thanks for a great video!
