Source of Staedtler CD R Pens - for Etching Metal?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I can’t find the Staedtler CD R Pens on Amazon. Could they be marked in a different way? And are they permanent or not?

    Dick Blick has them! You can also try oil based Sharpies/available at Hobby Lobby or Michaels

    Deb, I bought Staedtler pens marked pigment liner 0.l “indelible, waterproof on paper, lightfast” from Blick in San Diego this summer. Would they work for etching? I don’t know if they are oil based but they are fine line. thanks. Barbara

    Are these what you are looking for? I’m not sure what the letters stand for in your question.

    I’ve successfully used Deco Color Acrylic Paint Pens that I got from Dick Blick online. I’ve only etched on Copper. I would get the 4 sizes, PLUS the Paint Remover pen. Haven’t had any experience with staedtler, vinyl stickers, staz on rubber stamp ink. I’ve only tried Nail polish in a small spot that worked, Sharpies came off in places but that produces a nice organic texture too.
