Writing Samples

This page is where I've tested several different markers, especially to see how well they show up on darker painted pages. For white, my favorites are gouache, Sharpie Poster-Paint pen, and Uni-ball Signo in that order. The worst is the Permapaque, the Gelly Roll, and the Gell Xtreme. I'm just talking about white. I like these brands in other colors.

Thanks for the comparison! That background is very nice. Still have not found black gesso in my part of the world!

What a useful test sheet! You don't list my favorite white, which is ProWhite or Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White. They both cover better than white gouache, I think. And I've mixed a little colored gouache in with them from time to time.
