Water Soluble

POSCA paint is highly blendable and water-soluble. It can be diluted to produce a gradient effect. Simply add water to your creation with a wet paintbrush to blend or dilute for a transparent effect.


As long as the paint is wet, colors can be mixed on the work surface with the tip or a brush to create smooth gradations of color. If the tip is stained, simply rinse it with water and re-prime the marker to restore the initial color.



Dense and opaque, POSCA paint is ideal for layering. Dark colors can be applied over light colors or light colors over dark. Thanks to its fast drying time, layering can be carried out with no smudges. Several coats may be needed to apply light colors over dark.


The link between the artist and the work - The POSCA range includes no fewer than eight sizes and five different tip shapes. Made either of acrylic or plastic, they are all ultra-hardwearing and perfectly suited to their respective uses. The very high quality of the materials used guarantees a stroke that is always perfectly smooth. The line is regular, the action is unique and the pleasure of creating with POSCA is unparalleled.


MITSUBISHI PENCIL has developed a unique valve mechanism that guarantees a perfect seal for the marker and conserves the paint over time.
The same mechanism is used to prime the POSCA for use and to re-saturate the tip as often as necessary during creation.


The heart of POSCA! Very rich in pigments, POSCA paint provides results of incomparable density. Its unique water-based formulation delivers bright, matte, opaque colors that withstand the passage of time. It has no odor. Layerable, mixable, water-soluble, weather-resistant… no fewer than 55 colors (some with glitter, metallic or fluorescent) offer unlimited creative possibilities.


The sound signature of POSCA - To ensure a consistent texture from beginning to end, a little ball is placed inside the marker to mix the ingredients of the POSCA paint. Just shake the marker energetically (with the cap on), and you will hear its characteristic, sought-after clicking!
