    You can go for the white poster board pens. although they're not as fine tipped as you might like.

    i use white gel pens, but they kinda show your strokes. try a ball point whiteout pen, and they have paint pens also.

    Such a pen does exist my friend, but one must be up to the test to attain this majesticly elusive ink staff. You must travel to far corners of the world into a kingdom known only as Stylo. Good luck friend, it will be quite a journey.

    There is such a pen, the Painters Opaque white paint marker, which comes in various sizes of tip. These are put out by Elmer's (the glue people). I have a fine tip model and it works fine and is acid-free, but not archival.

    I like the sharpie waterbased opaque poster paint marker. Works really well, and I highly recommend it.

    Though, Sharpie does make a oil based one with a finer tip too.

    Thanks for making this thread. I've been looking for the same exact thing, actually. I've been using whiteout pens, but have been in search of something with a finer point. The trick I've been working with up to now is just going over my white line work with my black brush pen. Again, thanks for the post.

    awsome responses thanks everyone!

    Justin OAksford- white brush pens would be HOTTTT!!!!!!!! ...but wouldnt that be alot like painting white guoache with a sumi brush...

    romance- thanks for the links!! i may jus buy one im sure the sharpie company thanks you too

    Mr. Visions- for reeeeeeeal dawg the only thing that i dont like with the white-out pens is that is very inconsistand and it dumps globs of white out on the page AAAAARRRRRRRRG!

    WHAT ABOUT WHITE INK???????

    those sharpies sound nice though im gunna try it out.... im also gunna try maybe using gouache in a fountian pen... but that could be messy................

    the only problem with the sharpies are that they proly dont have the same consistancy and feel of a regular ballpoint pen.... but i guess i have realize that my dream pen may not be in existance... or i can invent one!!!!

    ill let everyone know of my findings and inventions...

    -thanks all

    I just use white ink inside of my Rapidographs. They work super well, but those pens sure are pricy.

    Jair, Rapidographs are technical pens that are used by architects and tattoo artists etc. I really love them and was introduced to them by a few of my friends who are tattoo artists. The only issue I have with the pen is that you have to clean them after every use or the chamber and cartridge get clogged with ink. Koh-I-Noor, the company that manufactures the pens say to use their special brand of cleaner, which is 15 dollars a pop, but I just use warm water immediately after I am done with them. The ink is opaque and flows very well.

    I myself purchased the 7 pack two years ago for around 50 dollars, this kit comes with eveything you will need except ink. The good news is that almost any art store including AC Moore and Michaels carries the ink. Hope this answered any question you may have had.

    I forgot to mention that black ink does come with the 7 pen set. There is something like 20 colors including black and white that are intermixable. The only thing you have to watch out for is if you use color or white ink is to REALLLLLY clean out the pens. If not the remaining color will mix in with any new ink you may put in. One thing I forgot to mention is it is much cheaper to buy the 7 pack then it is to buy individual pens.

    The link for the inks is http://www.dickblick.com/zz211/29/
