It’s no secret that I love neon, and that I love to incorporate it on my artwork. There is a variety of tools that I use to give from just a pop to a full patch of neon where needed. Whenever I find neon materials at an art supply store, I have to pick them up!
I went ahead and swatched my favorite neon art supplies and also linked the products I found online. Hope this Just a little disclaimer, all the colors are more intense and fluorescent in real life.
I found these Prismacolor pencils at an art supply store and had to get them.
I love Copics and was surprised to learn that they have neon markers. I currently own these two, but need them all! Of course regular highlighters are good too. I have used them as well. Copics are refillable and blend well between them.
You can find these online here and here.
My favorite media ever. I came across these Japanese Kissho Gansai Tambi watercolors which I love. I have the full 72 colors set (Christmas gift!) which has the six neon ones, but I also have the separate Lumi set because that’s how much I love these watercolors.
Lumi set available here.
Full set of 72 colors here.
I always use gouache combined with watercolors. The Acryla ones by Holbein are super good quality and very intense.
You can buy them here.
I occasionally feel the urge to work on a canvas, and that’s when these bad boys come out to play. These are the Professional Soft Body acrylic fluorescent paint by Liquitex.
You can find these acrylics here.
A side note, scanning neon is a tricky matter. The colors are awesome to work with, but they usually come out as pastels most of the time. Nevertheless, they are a lot of fun! Hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my neverending love for neon art supplies.
