These are brush tip graining markers from Mohawk. As can be seen in the photo, the tip is extremely fine and capable of making grain patterns almost as fine as a human hair. They are true brush tips, and perform just like a fine artist’s brush, but without the need to load them with stain, and clean afterwards. Just pop the cap back on and they’ll be ready for next time.

One feature that stands out is the opacity of the mark. I’ve used felt tip touch up markers to fix spots on wood before, but they tend to be less opaque, and rub off too easily. These markers don’t have that problem — they dry almost instantly and are very permanent, but can be cleaned off with solvent.

Not only can they be used to touch up scratches, but with practice, they can be used to replace the grain on a larger surface area repair, like a hard fill burn in, or epoxy putty.

Mohawk has a video that details the features of the markers and shows the amazing results that can be achieved with them.

Never seen these before, I’ve always used fine tip markers with limited results. Thanks for the review!

It’s hilarious that a thread that sat dormant for a year and a half was revived by a spammer. But yes, they are great touch up markers and I still use them.

I have three main solutions for graining. One is these markers, one is Mohawk Blendal sticks and the other is Prismacolor pencils. The markers work best over a top coat and the pencils and sticks work best over fillers like epoxy putty and Timbermate. Blendal sticks are good for coarse graining and tinting. I did a blog post highlighting the pencils and Blendal sticks over epoxy putty a while back if anyone is interested.

I’ve fallen into the trap of responding to an old post (that I had respond to even earlier) when it pops up again like this 8^)

I got a “repair” kit with some of the Blendal sticks when purchasing new cabinets a number of years ago. Never really understood how versatile they could be, thanks for the writeup!

Have your say...
