The MOST POPULAR PENS On Youtube?! POSCA Worth the HYPE?

The MOST POPULAR PENS On Youtube?! POSCA Worth the HYPE?

Hello there! So today I thought I would do more of a vlog style video. I personally prefer watching these types of videos, but let me know the comments if you kind of just like it the way it normally is and I’ll go back to that. Today, and when I say today, I mean I’ve had these for many months now, I am finally the proud owner of some Posh-gah… Posca pens, I think it’s Posca. I’m not smart enough to read what the back says. But what I do know is these are Japanese paint pens that can be used on glass, wood, paper, canvas, etc, etc. I’m guessing it can be used to- FOCUS THE CAMERA!! Every single artist on YouTube and their dog seems to love these things, so these are way hyped up for me, like ridiculously hyped up. So I hope they do live up to the hype. I’ve got a nice set of colors here as you can see, a few colors. I also have some pastel colors too, which is fun. So yeah, I thought I’d try them today to see what the hype is and also, before we start I’m going to be actually uploading quite an important video next week so if your notifications for me aren’t on, make sure you press the little bell icon next to the subscribe button. Wish me luck with the Posh-ca pens and let’s get started. Okay. So here we have the Posca markers as you can see, very attractive-looking brightly colored packaging. Based on the Amazon description, these were the thin stroked ones, so that’s good. It also came with these ones which look – ohhhh, pastels. Okay, here’s our sketchbook. Let’s move everything out of the way. So um, this is what it looks like. They do come in like, a bunch of different sizes. As I said, I just got the really thin ones because I felt I had more control. Okay, so I think this is where the shaking part comes in. *Shaking loudly* This is gonna be very tedious. Ooh, the colors coming out, I can see the color! Can you see the color? That looks EXCITING! Really pretty, oh this is such a nice color! Oh my gosh these are amazing. Purple, okay! *More shaking* I’m gonna multitask. *Double the shaking, double the fun!* That’s nice too! You know what’s really exciting, is when you look at the nib and then you can see like the color starting to escape. ITS ESCAPING!! I’m actually half tempted to go and get a picture frame, take the glass out of it and draw on that. *laughs* This one does not seem to be alive. WHOA, that is a nice color. So I’m really loving the new Mickey design at the moment, I really like how they’ve redesigned him to be more simplistic. I don’t know. I’m gonna- I’m gonna do some really quick cartoony characters because I’m going away on holiday tomorrow and if you don’t follow my adventures on Instagram… *Guys talking, faint* then you’ve probably not seen me hiding in a cupboard and panicking because I’ve not been able to get my video up. I’ve just moved into our new house and it’s awesome, don’t get me wrong, but unpacking boxes whilst people come out to the house is very very painful and stressful because I can’t film what I would like to film. I’ve been just ridiculously busy so again, I do apologize if this artwork today is a little bit quicker. Let me try and see if I can fix this eye. *Music* These work really well on a canvas, I mean because they’re textured it maybe is a little bit more difficult. I’d really like to try doing a proper like, acrylic painting on a canvas and then do like a, like a little illustration with these Posca markers, cause I think that will look really fun. Let’s see how the white marker does. Oh, look at that! The white marker will cover up all of my red lines. That’s good, cover up all of my mistakes. Be nice to have a white marker for your life really wouldn’t it? And would like to be, what it- WHY IS THAT RED? I would like to say though, that when I’m on holiday, I’m gonna make a very serious video that I would really appreciate if you watch when it comes out, it should be out hopefully next week but it’s gonna be quite an important video. So if you could sit and watch that or keep an eye out for it that would be awesome. *Tropical music* This is actually the most fun I’ve had with an art supply in a really long time. They’re like markers but better because they’re basically paint so they just cover everything really really well. Like with markers, if you go too dark with something, like you couldn’t then go over it and do that, you know which is what I think people really love about these. I’m taking a chocolate break because I’m low on energy and I hate coffee. So chocolate from Easter it is! I’m curious (while I eat my chocolate like a pig) um, if you saw this, if you- if you follow me on Instagram did you see this piece? I’m very curious. I think I showed it in my last video, but this was made with acrylics. This is the type of thing I really enjoy making, like above all else is more like scenery stuff like this, but you know, I still love to make characters and things like that too. Like Mickey Mouse. He’s just nice and simple. And I’m gonna talk about this in my next video, I actually never meant to become an artist. That was not something I meant to do, I never really went out of my way to practice it because I literally did not mean to do this as a job and then obviously when it became my job, I was like, oh gosh I need to learn things. I need to get better at what I’m doing and I’m very excited to do it, I’m gonna do a proper sit-down video next week. I’m gonna sit on the beach and I am gonna talk and talk and talk to you guys about lots of different things that I, I hope that you will enjoy that because I’m actually looking forward to filming it. So I think now I’m gonna add… I’m gonna add in his sorcerer’s hat. *Trumpet music* I’m gonna do like a little star, very bad star that’s very uneven, but that’s okay. Anyone else have trouble drawing stars, or is it just me? These colors are just beautiful. What is that STAR? What is that? That looks so bad. Another very dodgy looking star. Gosh, I love these markers. I absolutely love them. I a- like, I LOVE them. I honestly love them. OOOHHHHH, LOOK AT THAT! I can do highlights. I’m gonna buy the entirety of the Posca marker collection, um, and then I’m gonna buy even more just in case something ever happens to the brand and they don’t make them anymore. Umm, let’s see, what if I do like a broom now? *Jazz music* So just so people know, I’m not actually going to be drawing Mickey Mouse or Disney related stuff every single week. I know this probably seems like it at the moment and especially if you’re not like, the biggest Disney fan in the world it’s probably not overly interesting to you, but don’t worry. It’s not going to be every single week. It’s just at the moment. It’s a little bit more because I’m just, I don’t know. It makes me quite happy at the moment and keeps me distracted. *Music continues* These stars are just progressively getting worse! *Upbeat music* The blue one doesn’t seem to like me very much because it keeps doing this weird thing in the corners. Yeah blue really does hate me actually cause it’s all over my top now. Damn it! I’m gonna give him a little highlight… There we go, now he’s Mickey! Give his shorts a little bit of highlight… Okay, so as for a rating of these, I would honestly give them a nine out of ten. The only reason I’m giving them a nine is because of this blue color not working too great, and also the fact that you haven’t got a lot of control with this particular nib size but if you did get obviously a bunch of different sizes, then I suppose that would be a ten. So maybe that’s more fair. Yeah, I had a lot of fun. I think they work beautifully. I’m definitely going to be using these again, so thank you so incredibly much for watching this video. I hope that you enjoyed it, I had so much fun today, if you enjoyed it please give this video a thumbs up or if you didn’t you can give it a thumbs down, whatever you feel is best. Um, but yes, this is what it looks like. I’m very happy with it, make sure that you check by the way that your bell notification is on, it’s next to the little subscribe button so that will notify you or it should notify every time that I upload, especially my video for next week. It’s a very important video so make sure you check that out. And yes, thank you so much for watching this video, I hope that you enjoyed it, take care of yourselves and I will see you in the next video. *Music*

    Chloe! Are you going to Disney World?! <<screams hysterically>>

  • myfairlady says:

    Dont say you are not smart enough To read Japanese, you are just not able to read and understand Japanese :/

  • 3 Musketiers DMS says:

    Aunt Chloe!

  • Samantha Riley says:

    I wish I could give it more than a thumbs up….I laughed too hard at your Instagram stories. 😉

  • Yo Tengo says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t know Posca

  • Poppy T says:

    I use my white posca instead of tipex sometimes 🙈. Its just so much easier to use and I prefer the finish for writing over.

  • sunshinearts says:

    They also make brush nibs and fineliners 🙈

    Ps. Looking forward to your next vid ^^

  • Ryndi B. says:

    The "new" Mickey design is his original Walt Disney design just colored in instead of black and white
    Well it might be his second version, I think his first sketch might not have looked as nice/friendly…

  • Jo HexxKitten says:

    Wtf?? Chloe has your subs count dropped at all? I ask because I saw this video and as I watch it, I got a pop up suggesting I subscribe, this was confusing as I am already a subscriber.

    But I checked and sure enough it said "subscribe" not "subscribed". I never unsubbed, YT must have done it, they've done it before! I had wondered why I'd not heard from you for a long while.

    So I dunno if you want to see whether you had a drop in subs, but YT needs a kick again.

  • Traumfr3sserchen says:

    I personally prefer the "not-vlogging"-like videos 😀 But loved this anyways ♥

  • nevergoingtopostonthisthing says:

    Is it just me or did they look a bit like stickers when they had just the blue outline?

    To be clear I’m Not saying they actually are stickers.

  • Crystal Dawn says:

    YAAAASSS omglob thank you for reviewing these! I've recently started painting kindness rocks and while I really enjoy using acrylic paint and mixing my own colors, I've not yet found a detail brush that's not super overpriced online or just falls apart from the dollar store. It was a toss up between Posca and Artistro but now I know for sure I want these bad boys! ♥️(Also I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Will be keeping an eye on the notifications!)

  • Lightning Flash says:

    5:05 did anyone else see her phone flashing!?

  • Zombie Kitten says:

    looks like a sticker sheet to me!

  • Nancy Minshall says:

    i couldn't draw a star to save my life

  • Olivia Willman says:

    i don't think you should be afraid of posca ever going off brand. Posca has been a sucess for ages, and is a very well known brand. Grafitti artists have used them in about 30 years 🙂

  • Draw Tangles with Dawn says:

    FYI since these are PAINT pens you can put them down and then before they dry using a brush and a bit of water you can blend! it is an awesome technique to use.

  • Timothy Messer says:

    To be honest… I actually really dislike Disney, but it is not the art or the characters. So seeing people like yourself doing Disney art or fan art… Is totally fine to me. Art is art really. My hatred for Disney is really complex, but don't think needs to be mentions. Namely because I enjoyed this video. I also don't or love Disney. We all have our likes and dislikes, and I not about to ruin anyone fun on what they like, or makes them who they are.

  • McKenna McCartney says:

    Keep doing what makes you happy 🙂 Love your art so much!!

  • Taracinablue says:

    Those do look nice and smooth. I'm a little tempted, actually. I recently became addicted to coloring canvases (regular coloring is kinda fun, but feels pointless to me… coloring canvases can become cool, professional wall art & gifts when you're done), and I've collected multiple sets of markers (mostly cheapy ones, but one or two nicer ones. I'd love alcohol markers, but they're sooo expensive.
    Anyway, I hope you come back from your vacation relaxed and inspired =)

  • Eena B says:

    1:11 iconic „HHEEY!“
    Sounds like a kid thats wanting to fight…

  • Stephanie Heiler says:

  • Dyton Edwards says:

    the beauty of these markers is replaceable nibs, refillable with any high flow acrylic paint… when they seem empty, you add a bit of water (about third full) into the tube, shake well, and continue using for a bit longer. these are awesome especially the extra fine for detail work.

  • unknown says:

    anyone else click on another vid to see if it was their audio fucking up? lol

  • KayLe G says:

    You should try and compare them with molotow paint markers

  • Leila Ely says:


  • Klaudia mit K says:

    If you want to stick with the vlog intro I would recommend a better microphone for that. It cracked and mumbled a lot :/

  • Nabilah Abdul Talib says:

    Wasnt there a movie on this mickey mouse and the wizard (idk what its called)

  • Lunala Moon says:

    These look so cool!

  • J. Thies says:

    Leave the cap in while shaking – it prevents the mess 😂

  • Kayla Swafford says:

    You should do what king of random did and empty out gel pens but instead of experimenting with then you should try to paint with them.

  • E sosa says:

    doesn't she kind of sound like jemma simmons

  • Jimmy James says:

    Rae sent me

  • Rebecca McCarty says:

    8:25 All of the shapes would make really cute stickers!

  • Nicole Adams says:

    I personally despise vlog style videos.

  • Mino Princessa says:

    Are u left handed me to

  • yeetus says:

    oh why do my posca pens when i put them ontop of markers, even if i layer them they AReNt pIGMenTed? thEyre tRaNspArent.

  • MaeJuno says:

    Normal camera way is what I prefer. Too shakey for me too watch 🙁

  • Adelia Hammond says:

    I’ve bought three so far, they are great for coverage. I have to draw two triangles and rub out lines to do a decent star.

  • Emily Ann says:

    Bruh I have no money for chicken nuggets cause I just bought 6 copic markers😭😭

  • Hanneh Art says:

    am i the only one that realised the light flashing when she went on instagram on her phone

  • Creativity is an adventure says:

    Hi chloe . I am your new suscriber. I am thirteen years old and you encouraged me to be an artist. I thank you for that .

  • Creativity is an adventure says:

  • The Cowboy Artist says:

  • AD / HD says:

    What these are popular! lol I just started using them because my husband uses them for face painting for cosplay and gave me a pack lol they are really really nice I really like to finish my paintings with the black and go over the lines lol

  • AD / HD says:

    I always use these with acrylic paints and they work together really well but if u go over the acrylic to much in one spot it will lift it off but it takes a lot lol

  • Artzmazter Syakirah says:

    I’m #Artgasming

  • Strawberry_ Jam says:

    There's a technique I use to draw a star.

  • says:

    My Memaw is an Amazon Prime Addict and “accidentally” ordered these. I had never heard of them before and since we couldn’t get them to work (because we didn’t know about the pushing nib technic), she gave them to me. Off to play with them! 😄🖌

  • Lixxielou says:

    I make things from etched acrylic and these work amazingly for highlighting details 🙂

  • IlikeLlamas says:

    Wait those are popular?
    I got them for christmas and i thought they were regular chalk markers…

  • Martina Bizoviti says:

    I grew up in Greece and these were such a trend when I was in primary school!! Every time I see one is so nostalgic and it's really weird to think of them as proper art supplies

  • Danny_likes_queen says:

    me:can draw a person
    also me:cant draw stars to save my life

  • Danny_likes_queen says:

    Do you ever throw away your drawings

  • Cecelia M says:

    I like normal vids more

  • Amy T says:

    Hi, I’m newer to your channel. From the videos I’ve seen, I like the usual style with the camera more stable. It makes my eyes feel more relaxed. Great content, though, as in your other videos. I love your drawing!

  • wordscrafter says:

    I LOVE my posca pens! love how excited you get 🙂

  • ElephantsOnParade says:

    It’s funny how these markers are blowing up in popularity. I remember when my older brother was in high school and he would use them for graffiti art in his notebooks. I remember they always vanished from the art supply container caddy my mom had between the two of us.

    Edit: I love your Mickey illustration! Very pop art kind of feel!

  • oSILENTDEATHo says:

    Sorry, not for me. I hate the scratchy noise that it makes.

  • Aunt Slippy Fists says:

    I think your stars look nice, sometimes when they are drawn to perfect they look weird. The way you have them almost makes it look like they have a bit of movement, like they are gliding or dancing.

  • Joe Blankenship says:

    I bought a white Posca marker, because I've had nothing but frustration trying to use the white gel inks to add highlights over colored pencil. But the Posca works no problem.

  • MadVanlis says:

    I had a bad experience with the white posca pen. It was really dry and scratchy nowhere as juicy as the one you got. Maybe it was a dud?

  • skylar 101 says:

    I randomly found a orange one in my home

    You really should test these out on black paper. I was hoping you would as I am thinking of buying these for such a project.

  • Retro's Turtorials says:
