Our new Color Splash® Multi-Surface Markers are colorfast, quick drying, and fade resistant, almost like a paint marker that writes on so many surfaces. They are water removable on non-porous surfaces like metal, glass, glazed ceramics, plastic, and vinyl. The multi-surface markers create permanent art on porous surfaces like wood, fabric, paper, clay, foam, bisque, and more.

The convenient 48-pack includes 6 each of our 8 most popular colors: Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Purple, Orange, Pink and Black. Great for the classroom, afterschool, summer camps, rec programs, craft events, and more. These markers are exclusive to S&S!

Terra Cotta

We love how vibrant the multi-surface marker colors look on these mini terra cotta pots. Draw fun designs and use them for succulents, plants, or to hold everyday items.

We created a bowl out of air dry clay, then once it dried we colored it with our multi-surface markers. The bullet point tip makes it easy to create those small lines and detail.

Our non-glazed bisque items are a perfect surface for the markers. We love how these ceramic vases turned out. The inside is glazed, so you can add water and a real plant! You can also decorate your own candleholders and ornaments.

Non-porous Surfaces:

The multi-surface markers can be used on non-porour surfaces – and they wipe off! This includes metal, glass, dry erase boards, chalkboards, hard plastic, and glazed ceramic.


Use foil sheets to cover a small box, then draw the design with the tip of a pencil for the indentaion, and decorate with markers to create a Spring theme. The colors show up very pastel. Use these as keepsake gifts. You can also write messages on a magnet board and wipe off after you are done!

Drawing on glass is really cool with these multi-surface markers! When you apply the marker to the surface it appears very lighlty, then gradally gets more colorful as it dries. The colors look very pastel. You can wipe of the marker if you make a mistake – this is easier when the marker is still wet. Once it dries, you will need water and a towel to wipe it off. If you would like your design to be permanent, bake the item at 250 degrees for 30 minutes.

Glazed Ceramic

The colors show up very bright and vibrant on glazed ceramic surfaces. We colored one of our Color-Me™ glazed ceramic plates as you see below. The markers will scratch off non-porous surfaces and also wipe off with water. If you would like your design to be permanent, you can use the heat set method for glazed ceramics. Draw your design, then bake the plate at 250 degrees for 30 minutes. You can do the same with the mug, cup and saucer.

Decorate one of our 4″ Color-Me™ Flower Pots with the multi-surface markers, then add soil and a favorite plant to grow in the Springtime. The colors come out very vibrant on plastic as well.
