Today I’m sharing my review of the silver Molotow Liquid Chrome Markers while I test them out for you on some different surfaces. Watch the video or read below to find out why I love these so much!
These are fun to use for creating pretty monoline hand lettering so I thought I’d share them with you!
When I had seen them used on Instagram, they appeared to be incredibly shiny. But after experimenting on black card stock they seemed to soak in and loose some of their shine. They still work so beautifully and even though they loose some of their gloss, you still do get a desired effect on envelopes and other kinds of paper.
After some thought I noticed that what others had been using them on were more solid surfaces where the ink wouldn’t soak in as easily – think green leaves and plastic surfaces!
When hand lettering with these markers you’ll notice that I tap them into the paper before lettering as these need pressure to get the ink flowing. You might choose to do this on a separate sheet of paper before writing on your final piece if you’d like it to be perfect.
In the video you’ll see me use the thicker marker on a piece of clear acrylic and they work beautifully! While they do still look great on paper, these kinds of surfaces and materials showcase their true potential and glossiness. Using these on hard or plastic surfaces get the best results.
This is one of those markers that just feel so comfortable for lettering, and I love using them for monoline lettering.
