Decorating your skateboard with Posca Markers

Decorating your skateboard with Posca Markers

Materials:

  • Wooden Skateboard Deck
  • POSCA Markers – Ideal tip sizes PC1M, PC1MR, PC3M and PC5M
  • uni-ball Pin Fineliners (0.03mm – 0.8mm) • Pencil
  • Art Spray Sealer (Matt or Gloss) to protect your artwork
  • Optional - White Acrylic Paint/Gesso. You do not have to do this process, but wood is very porous, so to help with the absorption, which require less coats of POSCAS, you can put a coat of acrylic paint down first
  • Paint Brushes Preparation: Wipe down underside area (area you are going to paint) with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
  • You can use a piece of sandpaper with a fine grit to sand out any rough areas, then repeat by cleaning with damp cloth and let dry.

    Fixation: Once you are happy with your design leave it to dry for 12 – 24 hours.

    You can either use a normal Matte or Gloss Art Spray Sealer, depending on what look you are after.

    You will need to give it a minimum of 2-3 coats (please read the back of the can for recommendations on use).

    You can also use a 2-part Resin (by following the manufacturers mixing instructions) and wearing the correct safety gear (gloves, masks and long sleeve shirt).

    Design: You can use your pencil and draw the design directly onto the skateboard then paint in areas with white acrylic/ gesso that you are going to use your POSCA’S on.

    This is only a recommendation to help stop having to put on 2-3 coats of POSCA’S, due to the wood being so absorbent.

    You do not have to paint a base layer; you can paint directly onto the board with your POSCA’S.

    Once you are happy with the pencilled-out design, you can paint with your POSCA markers.

    For extra fine detail use uni Pin Fine liner to add depth to the artwork.
