Whiteboard Paints

For the more artistic among us.

Either a whiteboard-friendly paint (essentially whiteboard ink with modified texture for easy easeling) that can be applied to the whiteboard with traditional paintbrushes, or whiteboard paintbrushes made similarly to current whiteboard pens, but with a brush tip instead of a felt one.

The ink, needless to say, still rubs off with a standard whiteboard eraser.

This could release the inner artist in many teachers, and improve casual art as a whole quite dramatically.

       This is commercially available, and I assume it was in 2008.   

       Edit: Scratch that. I misinterpreted the idea. See my anno of Feb 16.

       Particularly geography teachers (bastards, they are ... all of them).

       Can a piece of paper be clipped to the board and a rubber roller pressed all over before the erasing? The paint would have to have printing characteristics as well as easy clean features.

       [+] Needs also have a nib pen capable of 576pt.

       That is a wonderful idea. One could photograph any particularly good whiteboard paintings, and at least keep a digital record of them, possibly to be reproduced in real paint on canvas later, after all the piles of homework have been marked, and all the future tests and quizzes set, and all the unhappy parents counselled, and all the events and outings and extra-mural activities arranged and co- ordinated, and all the school meetings attended, and all the private tuition done, and all the classroom-aid posters printed and hung, and all the students' progress reports updated, and all of them prayed for individually, and a bite of supper eaten (more like a midnight snack), and the cat fed, and ...yawn...oh forget it, I need my sleep...I think I'll just leave the whiteboard art up to the students to have fun with...

       Good luck with all of that. See link.

       I wish they'd make spray can or more liquid long-dry whiteboard paint! I've never seen it. (Got a reference to what you mean, [notexactly]?) There are colors for blackboards e.g. used in pubs to list the specials, but those are not dry-erasable.   

       Getting a solid single shade color in whiteboard marker is difficult, because after a while, the dried color accumulating on the tip of the pen scrapes off the dried color underneath. So, instead of just depositing flat color, you're now leaving little lines that are half scraped off, half new color. You have to use some paper or rags to periodically scrape the dried paint coating and get the raw felt tip back. It's laborious.

       Unless you puncture a hole in the rear and attach compressed air, but that’s probably not in the spirit of things.

       If you have access to a source of very, very high voltage, you can turn a whiteboard marker (at least an ordinary marker, and presumably a whiteboard one also) into an electrostatic spray gun. If the whiteboard has a metal backing that can be counter-charged, so much the better.   

       And hi, [jutta]!
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 16 2018
  

       Better still, forget the spray marker thing, just put a very high charge through the whiteboard. Always. All of them.
Ian Tindale, Feb 16 2018
  

       //a very high charge through// that phrase cannot be parsed in a useful way.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 16 2018
  

       Sorry, [jutta] and [dbmag9]—I misunderstood what this idea is. I thought it was paint that turns any surface into a whiteboard, which you probably both knew was a thing already. Now, on rereading, I see it's paint to be used on a whiteboard as an alternative to markers. That, I think, is a novel idea.
