Higgins Pump Markers




Higgins Black Magic Ink Markers are in a pump!  They are 
fantastic for many different surfaces.  Use them on paper or 

use them on boards.  They have a pigmented ink that is
quick drying and waterproof.  They will not disappoint!  These
Markers come in BRUSH TIP and CHISEL TIP.  They
are permanent markers and their tip can be removed for 
refilling with Higgins Ink.  


Come on in & check them out!

Roy was amazing! Just showing off a few images for you to see what a terrific afternoon we had!

Lots of explanations about opacity, transparency and mineral vs modern colors


  
Each color responds differently - but maintains it's pigment

So much personal attention from Roy!


This is literally more than (much more than) twice 
the amount of medium mixed with paint! AMAZING!
