It would appear that the Chartpak AD Marker has more than one use. Marketed for blending or dispersing colours left by other Ad markers, having been designed with artist creating illustrations in mind, did you know that these markers also make ideal tools for transferring images.
The nib on these colourless pens can produce three different clear cut line widths at the twist of the wrist. The clear solvent in this particular Chartpak is xylene, otherwise known for its cleaning & paint thinning properties. Chartpak Ad blender markers will blend colours with ease when wet making the passage of change between colours fast & simple. As mentioned earlier you can also transfer images on various things like wood & paper, which is supposed to be a breeze to do. Another idea that I've read has produced good results is transferring laser copies on to fabric. Might be worth a try if you fancy personalising a few T shirts, emblazoning them with a favourite pop star. Or maybe you are a budding fashion designer & want a unique piece of fabric for your latest creation.
If you haven't yet come across this concept here is a brief rundown
What you will need
It goes without saying you will need an image, these need to be toner or laser jet based (apparently inkjet prints just don't work) & also get yourself a pair of scissors.
1. Cut out your image, remembering your transfer will be reversed, therefore ensure any text creates a mirror image before you begin. On a cautionary note, many seem to have found more success with black & white, colour having reportedly produced mixed results.
- Position your image face down on your chosen location, be it art paper, a greeting card, lino, wood etc. hold in place & completely colour over the top of it. As you do so it will become transparent, revealing the new image.
- Once this has been done use something like a spoon or paper folder to rub over image firmly taking care not to move it, or it may become blurred. For a lighter look try applying less pressure.
So whatever you decide to use the Chartpak marker for, whether you are an architect, engineer, artist or student, using for business or pleasure we hope you get perfect results time after time.
