I've been wanting to purchase some paint sticks but notice you can get student or professional grade. What is the difference, besides cost??

hi laura

the professional grade will have more color. the student grade will have more filler matter in it. so the pro grade will give deeper color.   ckquilter

I'm exploring my options to paint on fabric.

Does anyone know the difference between Markal paintstiks and Shiva paintstiks? Are they similar products?

Also, has anyone used Liquitex paint markers on fabric?

Cheers Anita

Hi Anita Here in the UK I've always known them to be Markals, and in the US they are called Shiva. As far as I know they are the same product.
