③ Opaquing

Opaquing Pens, Markers, & Brushes

Opaquing Brushes, Pens, & Markers: An opaque marker is a specialty screen printing pen that contains dark, opaque ink that absorbs UV light, preventing exposure from a negative image. They are available in several different brands, (including Correct-A-Neg, Kimoto, and Zig) and are popular in black and red inks. Opaque pens also come in "brush" styles, for a more paint-like application, as well as different tip widths for extra fine or more broad application needs. Opaque markers and opaque brushes are often used for re-touching film negatives and press plates to repair flaws, and cover parts of the plate or film that should not be seen on the transferred print itself. Opaque ink will not crack or peel after drying, offering the perfect way to repair your printing plates or film. Choose from a variety of opaque film pens, markers, and brushes below, or call us at (866)537-2244 if can't find what you need.
