    High Quality Paint PENS?

    I've been looking for high quality paint pens for a loonnng time now. I even work at an art supply store and still I haven't found any product that does the job.

    For the most part, I've only seen opaque paint markers! But I'm looking for a pen, I need the nice fine point. Has anyone else tried finding opaque paint pens? I'm thinking of playing around with rapidographs, but I'm not sure how well they take to something opaque versus india inks.

    I realize I could just use a brush, but this is for a comic book that will be hand painted. Drawing with the brush takes me twice as long and I have to constantly dip my brush, pretty annoying! That's why I'm looking for a nice opaque paint pen.

    Any ideas?

    Claudia Nice in her book on using pen and ink with watercolor mentioned using a technical pen like a radiograph with acrylic paint rather than ink. It would need to be very thoroughly cleaned after each session to preserve the pen.

    Thanks, I might have to give that a try. Sure I'd have to clean it after every use, but I have to clean my brushes after every use too!
