Is there such thing as a pen that "paints" on wood? - 9 replies

I am trying to do some lettering on birdhouses and I am finding it difficult to paint letters as thin as I need to for them to fit. Is there such thing as a paint pen or stain pen? Can I use a sharpie and just coat it with a few coats of poly? Any advice or suggestions from the experienced woodworkers on this site would be appreciated.

I’m new to Lumberjocks but it looks like this forum is open to topics other than wood. I am a freelance writer who tries to NEVER write about anything negative. I need good news. Positive stories.
