Markers

Markers are useful for drawing, sketching, coloring in coloring books, coloring in the details on rubber stamped images, writing the greetings on your handmade greeting cards, coloring in blocks on color knitting or crochet charts you’re designing or signing your artwork done in other media. There may be other uses, too, but these are the things I use them for most often.
