Markers are not just for kids; artists rely on them too for manga, stationery, calligraphy, illustrations, and sketching. Markers provide a rainbow of hues in a variety of alcohol-based and water-based inks. Alcohol-based markers are known for their great coverage and variety of colors; they dry instantly and are permanent for durable, brilliant, smudge-free drawings. Water-based markers are great for everyday sketching and safe for kids. They are usually more translucent and take longer to dry. A diversity of tips—ultrafine, bullet, brush, chisel—are available to create all the marks you can dream up. Below, our picks of the best colored marker sets.
