We recently got our hands on a whole set of On The Run paint markers and boy did we have some fun with these bad boys! With a huge range of nib sizes from 1.1 inch all the way own to ballpoint size, this range of markers and pens has you covered for any mission. Our favourite here at Bondi Road Art was far and away the Soultip Squeeze markers. Th coverage of these on any surface was phenomenal! We tried it out on everything including steel, rough concrete, brick, plastic, hell we even painted the pet turtles shell! Could not fault it in any way!
The Moppin’ markers were just as solid. the real highlight of this range was the quality of the nibs used. they are hearty, strong and reliable and can really take a lot of use. This is great as we have found with other markers similar to the On The Run line wear down a lot quicker which is really annoying when you still have half a pens-worth of pant trapped in your near new marker that you outlaid solid cash for.
One thing that does lack a little with the On The Run markers is the colour vibrancy. The wrapper has you expecting the world with super bright colours that entice you when you’re holding up the two options in your local store. Don’t get me wrong the coverage of the colour and thickness is fine, but they should really work on matching the outside to the inside a little more as it is a little deceiving.
When it comes to price, the On The Run markers are more expensive at most shops than the Montanas which is a shame as we believe they are probably on par overall. Because of this differing price point and the lacking vibrancy of the colours compared to the cheaper alternatives of your well known brands, it might be a while before we make the change full time, which is a shame as its’ nice to support the up and coming companies when you can, but when you are scraping together the coins out of your centre console to get up, well, you do what you gotta do.
