Using Your Acrylic Paint Markers for the First Time
Before you use your paint markers for the first time, you need to follow a few simple steps to get them ready for use. These are summarized in the image below, but the main points are:
1) Shake Well (with the cap on)
2) Remove cap and gently press the tip to release the gas pressure. This is important to keep the ink from spilling out.
3) After you've released the gas, then you can gently press and hold the marker down on your test paper to prime (fill) the tip with ink. Hold for intervals of 10 seconds, release, and repeat as needed until your tip is ready to go.
