Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a4andrew Takes a fair amount of shaking and squeezing for it to bleed out
If you are looking for precise painting without brushes, and the messy clean up that usually goes along with that, pick up some of these paint markers. The are convenient and have good precise points. There is a the paint ball similar to what you would find in aerosol cans that will mix up the paint. Then you need to squeeze the tip, which is kind of like a hard sponge.for the paint to bleed into. After which, you just use it like a marker. My only (minor) complaint is that is that it take a bit of squeezing before the paint bleeds into the market point/tip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanT Great Paint Marker For Most Surfaces
I was looking to try an alternate tool for painting details on a wall mural. I had been using multiple fine-tip paintbrushes and latex paint to date, and while this had been satisfactory, the entire process was still slightly tedious (get the paint, stir, dip, paint, clean, put away).
I purchased this set of paint markers to see if they would serve instead. I've been pleasantly surprised at how well they mark up various surfaces (wood, drywall, metal) and have started using them almost exclusively when doing fine detail work, They apply easily and dry very quickly with a glossy sheen (don't use in a matte application).
The only drawbacks seem to be the lack of a very fine point (which can be addressed by the delicateness of the touch), and the time spent priming the marker by shaking it vigorously the first use.
Overall, if you are looking for an easy, detail paint tool, this is a very good choice.

Used these to decorate ceramic mugs for holiday gifts. The colors are very good and have lasted a month now, with gentle washing. Just caution that it takes some time to get the paint to flow. Red turns to brick color if you bake the mug.

I do a lot of hand lettering. I usually use chalk or woodburning, but I had a request for paint on wood. I've tried doing lettering on wood with paint and that ended in a rather sloppy disaster. I've heard plenty of good things about these pens, so I figured it was worth a shot. I think this will be my new go-to medium! The gold and silver are absolutely lovely, they're very pigmented and metallic. I've tested these pens on untreated pine and stained pine and they performed wonderfully. Not a hint of bleeding or smearing!

These pens are easy to use, they don't "run" or drip like I thought a paint pen might. Easy application. My sisters and I used them to decorate coffee mugs and they were PERFECT. My sisters' turned out way cooler than mine, but that's just due to user limitations. I'm probably going to buy more for her birthday.
If you like fun, crafty, DIY projects, GET THESE!
FYI: It takes quite a bit of shaking to get the paint to the tip. Once it's there, you're golden. Don't give up!

I use these pens quit a bit and they have never failed to write. Try them, you'll like them. I highly recommend them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pamperedchefgal Would not apply evenly
Perhaps they would work well on plastic or something, but not on wood as the packaging states. They remind me of the old paint pens that we used in Junior High School in the early 80's.
I wanted to touch up my wood Christmas yard art that had weathered through the years. After priming the pen the paint would not flow smoothly, thus leaving a streaked look rather than a smooth line. Since I only tried with one, I plan to return the purchase.
