Pilot Automac Mechanical Pencil – 0.5 mm – Black Body
Well, all you people that keep buying this thing and making it go out of stock
in one day could at least leave a review, couldn’t you? Guess I’ll do my own,
after 4 attempts at getting one of these.
I was really interested in this pencil due to the fact that I love to use 4B
lead, and it’s rather annoying to have to keep clicking the feeder between every
sentence or partial drawing.
While the Automac does a great job of automatically advancing the lead, it is a
little weird how it does it, and I’m not sure exactly how it works, and I’m not
quite sure if I like it yet or not. Based on my observations, while continuing
to write when the lead is almost gone, the lead sleeve will slightly back off of
the lead, to allow you to continue to write, and then as you lift up on the
pencil, it will advance the lead, however, it is just barely out of the lead
This causes a little bit of a strange writing feel, in that if you don’t advance
the lead yourself, you are always writing with the lead just barely sticking out
of the lead sleeve. Sometimes this can cause the lead to not mark as dark of a
line as you’d like, depending on the angle at which you hold the tip. If you
are really slanted, when you write, this will be more of an issue, however, if
you write almost vertically, it won’t be an issue at all. I played around with
it, and am satisfied with the movement of the lead when auto advancing. It’s
just something to be informed about.
As far as quality, it is a well designed and manufactured piece. At first, I
thought the black portion was metal, but when I got it, I thought it was
plastic, until I took it apart to inspect it. It appears to be made out of
brass, and then painted with some type of really hard enamel paint. It is
really glossy, and has a kind of sparkle to it, which is cool. The grip is also
interesting, it is not aggressive like some others I’ve used, but still has
enough of a grip to be useful, frankly, it almost feels soft, even though it’s
made out of metal, quite a different feeling than expected.
I also did not know that the tip is retractable, like a ball point pen, not just
allowing the sleeve to slide back in, it’s like the vanishing point pencils,
which is really nice. Click gently to advance the lead, click more firmly, and
it retracts the tip and a significant amount of extended lead back into the
body. Pretty nice bonus.
The clip is really firm, a little more firm than I’d like, but it may keep you
from losing it, if you actually put this in your shirt pocket. I put mine in my
messenger bag pen slot, and it’s somewhat difficult to get in the pocket,
clipped in, at least.
I’m really happy about this purchase, and it will probably be my go-to pencil
for a long time.

Dave’s Mechanical Pencils: Ohto Auto Sharp Mechanical Pencil Review
Ohto Auto Sharp AP-205 Mechanical Pencil Review
For general writing mechanical pencils, I guess that effortless automatic lead advance, which the user is unaware of, is one of major goals for the designers. I’m not sure they will actually reach that goal with the current types of auto advance mechanisms as they are activated by physical contact with the writing surface, and thus the alert writer will always be aware of something going on. For perfect automatic lead advance I think we will have to wait for some sort of proximity sensor that knows the tip of the lead sleeve is getting too close to the paper and that it is therefore time to advance some lead.
I feel I should know better, but automatics do have a certain allure to them, and so yet again I found one in my hand. Will this tale of the automatic be the familiar one – long on promise, short on delivery? With pencils like the Super Promecha, Ohto are known for marketing some of the most advanced, customisable, technical, complicated, gimmicky (take your pick) mechanical pencils around. Surely an automatic from them is likely to be better than most?
So then, the Ohto Auto Sharp AP-205 mechanical pencil.
It’s a lightweight mostly plastic pencil. The styling and colour scheme are quite nice, although nothing outstanding. The body and the grip are triangular, although the front end of the grip does start to taper down and transition into round where the front tip screws in.
The triangular grip is made from a smooth rubber compound which is quite hard, with a relatively smooth surface. The rubber does improve the grip properties a small amount, but not by much. The grip is an average size so should suit most who like an average sized pencil.
Now, as we know, the Ohto Auto Sharp has an auto-advance lead mechanism. Firstly though it is also a standard push top ratchet mechanism pencil. Ten clicks on the top button will get you a whopping great 14mm of the 0.5mm lead. The lead sleeve is a short plastic cone which is retractable so this is a pocket safe pencil. Right then, how does this pencil perform when you don’t click the top button and let the auto-advance mechanism take over? Well, basically it performs as expected. It advances lead when the tip hits the paper and when that happens you can notice some small differences in the feel and lead application to the paper. For me personally the major issue I have with many auto-advancing mechanisms is ‘plunging’. That’s my name for the phenomenon of suddenly, whilst you are happily writing away, the whole lead sleeve retracts back up into the front tip and you ‘plunge’ forward. It’s really annoying and disconcerting. It sees to affect some pencils far worse than other…although for all I know they all possibly have the same design mechanism. Well, the Ohto Auto Sharp is one of the better performer in this aspect – whilst I did experience some plunging, it was relatively rare and not too dramatic. So, basically as always, I’d suggest you use the pencil in the normal manner, advancing the lead manually and just letting the auto-advance take over for those infrequent occasions when you are ‘caught short’, as it were.
Hmmm, just thinking about the auto-advance mechanism for a bit longer. It works by having the plastic lead sleeve make contact with, and thus rub on, the paper. I assume the plastic sleeve is made from a decent engineering plastic like acetal or something, but paper is just really compressed wood fibre and any woodworker knows that saws and all their other fine steel tools go blunt when in contact with wood. Really, despite what is feels like, paper is actually reasonably tough and abrasive. Cutting paper with a steel knife will dull the blade over time. So, how about that plastic tip then? Actually, I didn’t even need my magnifying glass. After two weeks of use, I could see the edge of the lead sleeve cone had been worn away. Viewing with a magnifying glass just confirmed it. The triangular grip on the Ohto Auto Sharp must actually increase the wear because the pencil can only held at three specific rotations, and because of the pocket clip, many users, like myself, will not even rotate it at all and thus the exact same spot on the lead sleeve will always be making contact with the paper and thus be worn down even quicker. Obviously paper type, amount of hand pressure, amount of use of the auto-advance feature and amount of rotation will all affect the rate of wear on the lead sleeve. Who knows how long it would take before the cone wears down so much as to affect the operation of the auto advance? I imagine though it would be a fairly long time, and most users would have misplaced their pencil before it happened. Still, it’s an interesting little thought process.
Carrying on then, as expected there is a small eraser under the push top button, and you remove that to access the lead refill magazine.
The pocket clip is moulded plastic and actually quite stylish and functional.
Markings on the body are “Ohto” printed on the pocket clip, and “Auto Sharp 0.5mm AP-205” on the body. I fail to find the word “Japan” anywhere on the pencil. I imagine that implies something.
So, in closing then, the Ohto Auto Sharp is a nice enough mechanical pencil for its price range, but as usual I am left a little nonplussed with the auto-advance mechanism. Must try harder to resist the allure of the automatic…but hey, down this way the general public can’t own handguns…so temptation abounds…automatic pistol…automatic pencil?
• Best Points – The auto-advance works reasonably well.
• Not So Good Points – Considering what this pencil is, and its price range, then nothing much.
• Price Range – Low.
• Does this pencil make it into the Top 5? – No.
Dimensions – Length 141mm, width 11 mm across the face of the body. Balance point about 65mm up from the tip.
This Ohto Auto Sharp AP-205 mechanical pencil was sent to me gratis by Cult Pens. Thanks Cult Pens.

MAC Automatic Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette Review
After my brief episode with the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown that made my black eyebrows appear even more fierce-looking and threw my eye makeup off-balance, I decided that since MAC is like THE standard for so many people, I should find my eyebrow antidote there.
I went to the Raffles City MAC store and was recommended Brunette, Spiked, and Stud by the MUA (makeup artist). I tried them all on my bare brows and thought Brunette looked a teeny wee bit orangey on me but the MUA insisted it suited me best. Against my better judgement, I ended up with Brunette.
So… Do I love it?
I am still perplexed as to why I went ahead and bought ANOTHER pencil in the exact same shade even before my first one ran out. Maybe I was afraid of not being able to find another eyebrow pencil that would suit me quite as well. The thing is, after I got my second MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette, it has been lying in my makeup stash collecting dust. The NYX Automatic Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown has totally owned the stage.
But before I go into why I think the NYX Eyebrow Pencil is the best eyebrow pencil, here’s my review on the MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette.
Creamy, glides on smooth and very blendable, drawing the eyebrows with this is fast and easy. However it does not have as much staying power as the Rimmel or NYX pencils.
Shape of pencil tip
The tip of the pencil is shaped like an oval, giving you control over how sharp you want your eyebrow tail ends and arches to look.
I like that the MAC automatic eye brow pencil automatically sharpens itself when twisted.
It is non-retractable! Once you twist it up, you can never bring it back down so you’ll never know how much of the product you have left. Goodness! It is mental torture just guessing when it will run out. What if it suddenly ran out on the night of an important dinner! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere with angry-looking eyebrows drawn with the Rimmel pencil!
I think it’s probably because of this need to feel secure with a backup that I impulsively bought another MAC pencil. MAC plays mind games!
I’ve read of many people who have had bad experiences with MAC makeup artists recommending the wrong shade of foundation, concealer, blush… and now I’ve my share of wrong color match too. True to my instinct and judgement, Brunette has appeared a little orangey on my black eyebrows. If you looked closely, my natural black brows and Brunette eyebrow pencil color don’t meld. Very awkward. Is it because of my black hair (4 months ago)? Brown hair (now)? Dark eyebrows? Black eyes?
I don’t know.
Probably Spiked would have been a better choice.
I recommended MAC eyebrow Brunette for those with naturally slightly brown eyebrow hairs or those seeking to achieve that look.

reviews about the marker for auto
Minor damage to the paintwork of the car accompanies it throughout its entire service life. Recently, great importance has been attached to this issue. More and more effective means for removing scratches from the surface of the body are on the market. Among such tools, a scratch putty pencil and various polishes that have two-sided reviews from users are worthy of consideration. Modern advertising imposes on motorists supposedly universal means for sealing defects on the surface of the body.However, all these funds differ in their properties, and are not applicable for every damage. To understand all this in more detail, you should start with the classification of damage to the car body. And then you can draw conclusions and start restoring the previous type of car.
Varieties of scratches
Most car paintwork consists of three main layers. A primer is first applied to the metal surface, which ensures better adhesion of the paint to the surface of the car body.The enamel is applied to the primer layer, which gives the car color. The very same enamel is covered with a layer of varnish, which protects the paint from fading and other damage.
The damage on the machine can be divided into three degrees of severity, depending on the depth of the scratches in layers. The smallest damages are scratches of the varnish coating, which did not reach the enamel. Such damage mainly occurs as a result of improper car wash. Washing with a brush or sponge almost always results in these defects.They are not particularly noticeable, but in the sun they create the appearance of an unattractive cobweb.
The second type of scratches affects not only car lacquer, but also enamel coating. Such scratches are more visible and dangerous for the body.
If a primer is visible in the scratch, then corrosion can be expected at this place as soon as possible. The primer perfectly absorbs water and does not protect the metal from its harmful effects.
The most difficult type of body damage is deep scratches to metal.Such defects require immediate restoration, since they not only spoil the appearance of the car, but are guaranteed to provoke the spread of foci of corrosion.
Removing small scratches in the varnish
To seal the so-called cobwebs on the machine, the polish is considered the most effective tool. However, a marker for removing scratches can often help out. This tool looks like a regular stationery marker. The only difference is the filler, which is a liquid varnish.When this substance is applied to a scratch, the varnish fills it and makes it invisible without additional touch-up.
Among the markers for small scratches, Top Race received good reviews. This tool is quite inexpensive and is in great demand among motorists.
The Top Race marker allows you to avoid premature and costly body painting and can easily replace more complex polishes. This tool comes with instructions for use and there are many videos demonstrating its use.
In addition to markers, there are polishes on the market that also work well with cobwebs. Removing scratches with polishes is a time-consuming process, but more effective in such cases. An anti-scratch marker or pencil is more appropriate for sealing the second type of damage.
Elimination of scratches to the ground
More complex damage usually occurs when a serious physical impact on the surface of the car body.This can be tree branches, metal parts of clothing, careless driving, and so on. These damages include not only scratches, but also various chips of the paintwork. It is a little harder to repair such damage, but it is quite possible.
As for the previous type of damage, in many cases a pencil can help out for removing a scratch on a car. Top Race described above can help fight deep scratches right down to the ground. In addition to Top Race markers and other lacquer-filled products, there are pencils on the market that allow you to restore not only car lacquer, but also enamel of a certain color.The only difficulty in this process is choosing the right color. Some products are selected according to a special color scale. However, this method does not always help. Many car enthusiasts who have encountered such tools recommend picking up markers or pencils against scratches from the same country of manufacture where the car itself is from.
If there are serious damages such as chips on the surface of the body or on the plastic, then in such cases it is more advisable to use special varnishes for scratches.In appearance, this varnish also looks like a marker, but it is a container with liquid and a special brush. The product flows into all cracks of a chip or deep scratch, completely filling it.
Such varnishes adhere well to the surface of the body and can withstand several intensive high-pressure washes. To achieve the best effect from using such a tool, experts recommend applying polish over the varnish. The application of polish will create additional protection for the restored area, and will not bother the owner of the car for an even longer period.For the correct application of the varnish with a brush, it is advisable to watch several videos on this topic. Also, do not forget that there are instructions for use.
Removal of deep scratches to metal
The most difficult type of scratch on a car is damage to all layers of paintwork. In many cases, a simple remedy is indispensable. But if a deep scratch has a small area, then there is still a chance to avoid touching up a car. Moreover, this pleasure is not cheap.And because of every minor defect, it will be costly to drive a car to the paint shop not only in money, but also in time.
In case of such damage, the same marker with varnish filler and a brush can come to the rescue again. By the way, it was noted by motorists that such funds are best bought from a Japanese manufacturer. Without straying too far from the topic, the same can be said for paint polishes. Japanese funds have already shown themselves to be a good side in this regard for a long time.
Since the scratch to the metal is deep, the agent must be applied in several layers. The aforementioned Japanese brush varnishes usually fill the deepest scratch in two coats. When using such varnishes, you should be careful, as incorrect actions will lead to the formation of smudges on the paintwork, which will not be easy to remove.
Whatever the damage to the car, sooner or later the owner will have to be painted with all the ensuing consequences and procedures.However, today’s market allows to postpone expensive painting a little for some time. All this is made possible with the advent of simple scratch removers. These products will not only temporarily restore the car to its original appearance, but also protect against the spread of corrosion before the owner decides to re-paint.

According to experts, scratch remover polish is a very effective solution for combating defects.It was this composition that was lacking in the line of products that allow you to fight scratches. The fact is that scratches are elementarily removed by hand using abrasive polishing materials, but things are completely different with lacquered surfaces – any varnish is several times harder than paint, so it is very difficult to process with abrasives.
Previously, in order to remove a scratch from a varnish, it was necessary to process the damaged part of the coating with fine sandpaper, then treat the area with a fine abrasive polishing compound, and finally apply a protective polish.In fact, this whole undertaking is very complicated, since sandpaper causes great harm to the paintwork (it will be much more than it was before the intervention).
When the opportunity to buy a pencil for removing scratches presented itself, the repair technology changed significantly: you just need to wash and wipe the treated area of the coating, and treat the volumetric scratch with an abrasive preparation.

How to remove scratches on a car?
Instructions for removing chips and scratches
There are several ways to remove chips and scratches on a car.
Polishing scratches will only help in case of surface damage to the paintwork. In case of deeper damage, such as a scratch on the varnish that does not touch the paint, it makes sense to paint over the scratch with a clear varnish such as Fix-it Pro.
Unfortunately, a pencil for removing scratches (marker) Fix-it Pro often does not meet the expectations of the car owner, as it is effective only on scratches on the varnish when the paint is not damaged. In the advertising of this pencil, we are convinced that it is universal, suitable for all colors of cars and can completely hide scratches on the car body, that after its application it is impossible to determine the place of the former scratch or chip.But in practice this is not confirmed, since the same pencil cannot fit both a red and a green car. There is only one conclusion, Fix it Pro is a transparent varnish that will eliminate minor scratches on the varnish.
There are also wax crayons with a tinting effect. In practice, they are ineffective, in most cases they do not work, if you managed to hide a scratch with such a pencil, then it will last until the first wash.
Complete elimination of scratches and chips can only be achieved by completely painting the part.Although there are nuances here:
• firstly, the risk of missing the color;
• secondly, factory painting is almost always better than repair painting, which affects the body’s resistance to corrosion;
• thirdly, of course, the high cost of repairs and other inconveniences caused by the duration of the complete repainting of the part.
When selling a car, a car in its native paint is always of greater value.
To avoid the above inconveniences, we recommend using a repair auto pencil from scratches and chips.
Today there are several types of pencils with car paint:
• pencil – proofreader
• pencil – marker
• pencil with brush.
Pencil – Concealer will help to remove chips on the car, as well as scratches. Works well on horizontal surfaces. Such as hood, roof, trunk lid. Great for repairing minor scratches. The disadvantage of such a pencil is that it is difficult to regulate the flow of paint or varnish with it and it can leak on vertical surfaces.
Pencil – marker , usually has a volume of 8 – 9 ml. It is convenient to use such a pencil on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Does not allow smudges. It is convenient for them to paint over many small scratches that are close to each other. But this pencil also has disadvantages. It is inconvenient for them to repair fine scratches due to the thick nib. The tip also dries out over time, although this problem can be solved with a solvent (646, 647, 650, acrylic).Well, a small amount of paint in this pencil can also be considered a disadvantage.
Anti-scratch pencil with brush 30ml has long been familiar to motorists. It can paint over scratches on both vertical and horizontal surfaces. It is convenient for painting defects with a large area. As you know, each car has its own weak points, for example, Skoda Octavia: on the trunk lid, above the license plate, there is a plastic overlay, along the edges near which paint will peel off.As well as sills in the area of the front fenders. The same disease is found in VW Multivan, Caravelle, Transporter and Caddy in the area of the side door handle. Almost all cars of the VAG family have similar problems. In these cases, a pencil with a brush will be an indispensable assistant.
When buying a pencil, you need to understand that you will not be able to completely paint over a scratch on a car or a chip (that is, restore it to its previous factory state). The task of the pencil is to protect the metal from corrosion and make the scratch or chip as invisible as possible.
Repair of scratches and chips. Paint application procedure
1. If there is rust on the car, remove it by any means, mechanical or chemical. If you will be using a rust converter, we recommend choosing an acid-free one, it does not attack the metal as aggressively as an acid one. We do not recommend mechanically removing rust on galvanized vehicles in order to avoid damage to the factory zinc coating.
2. Apply a primer on clean metal, or on bare plastic if the plastic is chipped or scratched.
The need to use a primer is to increase adhesion to the surface (adhesion), in the anti-corrosion protection of metal, filling properties (restoration of the layer thickness). By design, automotive primers can be divided into 3 types:
• For plastic
Anti-corrosive primer can also act as a filler.It can be epoxy or acidic primer. In the repair of chips and scratches with car pencils, mainly anti-corrosion primer and plastic primer are used. An anti-corrosive primer will increase adhesion (adhesion) to metal and provide anti-corrosion protection, which will save you from expensive repairs in the future. The task of the plastic primer is to increase adhesion to plastic surfaces. The next step is to apply paint.
Acid Primer dries 30 minutes after application at 20 degrees.The epoxy primer dries completely in 10 – 12 hours at 20 degrees. In professional repairs, the primer must be sanded, degreased and painted. In our case, it is necessary to wait until the primer is completely dry, degrease the surface and apply paint.
A scratch or chip on a plastic surface must be primed on the plastic and paint can be applied after 15 minutes at 20 degrees.
3. Painting. Apply 2-3 coats of paint to the primer with interlayer drying for 10-15 minutes at 20 degrees.After the last coat in 15 minutes, apply 2-3 coats of varnish with interlayer drying for 10-15 minutes. Base paints are varnished. It is not necessary to varnish acrylic paints. All base enamels, including those with a metallic effect, mother-of-pearl and flat colors, must be varnished, since without it the paint can be washed off over time and corrosion can develop under it. As a rule, since 1995, all passenger cars of famous world automakers are covered with paint, then varnish.
Initially, try to perform all work as accurately as possible and not go beyond the boundaries of damage.
After all of the above, you can try to polish the surface with a professional polish.
The advantages of such a repair.
- This is, of course, a low cost compared to painting at a workshop.
- The original paintwork is retained, which will have a positive effect on corrosion resistance and the estimated value of the car when it is sold in the future.
- Time saving. You do not need to queue up for repairs at the service station and leave your car for repairs for at least a few days.
- With a complete painting of the part, you risk not falling into the color of the car when choosing paint
- You insure yourself and your car against possible low-quality repairs, which is not uncommon in our time.

How to use a pencil to remove scratches on a car
Many drivers face such a problem as the formation of scratches and chips on the surface of the car. Today, there are two effective ways to get rid of this. The first is to go to a workshop, where scratches will be removed for a fairly large amount of money. The second way is simpler and cheaper – using a special pencil. It costs about 10-15 dollars, but it is highly efficient.But in order to achieve a good result, you need to know how to use a pencil to remove scratches.
Scratches on the car body that can be corrected with a pencil
Why do scratches appear and what are they fraught with
Not a single driver, even the most careful driver, is insured against minor damages on the surface of the car. Among the main causes of scratches on a car:
- stones that fly out from under the tires;
90,095 branches hit by a car;
90,095 actions of hooligans, etc.d.
Even if the chips are insignificant, they can spoil the mood of the motorist. Besides aesthetic unattractiveness, scratches are fraught with danger. In fact, they represent hot spots of corrosion. Chips are especially dangerous in winter, as salt moisture gets on the metal surface. This accelerates the development of corrosion processes several times. Therefore, before using automotive cosmetics, it is necessary to neutralize all minor damage.
What is a restoration pencil
Some drivers believe that there is a sea of remedies for getting rid of scratches – the so-called anti-scratches, polishes, pastes, and so on. Indeed, the modern market offers us a wide range of specialty products, but not all of them allow us to achieve the desired effect. Basically, all such products remove only those scratches that touch the varnish. But with those that penetrate the paint layer, they cannot cope.
Assortment of restoration pencils in different colors
The special pencil is capable of removing even deep scratches. The product is made on an acrylic base, so it fits well on any chip. Restoration pencils are available in various versions. You have the opportunity to choose a product in accordance with the color and make of the car. There are universal colorless pencils that can be applied to any shade of machines. Using such a tool is a fairly simple process that does not require any special skills.However, you need to know some of the nuances.
Advantages of pencil
Due to its unique composition, the pencil is highly effective. Its active formula includes microscopic polishing particles. They fill in the scratch and thus restore the coating. Such a product does not contain toxic substances, therefore it is absolutely safe for human health. It fills in the chip completely, therefore protects the car from corrosion.
The restoration pencil is not rinsed off, so you don’t have to worry about moisture getting on your car.Its structure is similar to the paintwork of the car, therefore it does not leave marks on the surface of the car. With the help of such a pencil, you can paint over any crack or scratch without going to a service station. Separately, we note the cost-effectiveness of the tool, because its purchase costs 23 times cheaper than repairs in a car service.
Method of application
Before using the pencil, thoroughly rinse the surface of the car with soapy water. Then remove the remaining detergent and wipe the housing dry.Shake the pencil well, and then press the tip until the correction fluid appears. Apply gently to scratches. If necessary, remove the remaining liquid with a dry cloth.
In the video – the use of the restoration pencil:
After the procedure, the machine must be dried in sunlight. It is best if she stands outside for two days. Note that scratches that are too large and deep cannot be processed.They can only smooth out, but to completely eliminate them, you will have to contact a specialized service center. After use, the pencil should be closed with a cap. If the liquid has dried on the tip, take out the dried piece and immerse the tip of the device in the solvent (for 4-6 hours).
It is recommended to store the restoration pencil in an area out of reach of children. If suddenly the corrective fluid gets on the skin, it should be washed off with a stream of warm water.However, it is better not to allow this and use rubber gloves when treating the surface of the car. If liquid gets into your eyes, rinse them for fifteen minutes and then consult a doctor. Do not inhale the vapors of the product, therefore it is better to treat the car in the fresh air.
We also recommend using the pencil to the maximum the first time, as it may dry out later. In air, when exposed to direct sunlight, the liquid solidifies almost instantly.In the shade, the product dries up within seven to ten days (the period depends on the air temperature). In order to increase the life of the pencil, after its first use, close the cap tightly and wrap it with insulating tape.
We recommend correcting deep scratches by applying several layers of liquid. However, between each layer, you need to take a break of one or two days to allow the product to dry. Otherwise, you will not be able to carefully cover up the scratches.Try to carry out the procedure as carefully as possible so as not to leave marks on the surface of the car.

basic characteristics, how to use it to remove scratches on the body
Sooner or later, every driver and car owner asks how to eliminate minor scratches on the car, and a wax pencil can become a way out of this situation. The need for its application is associated primarily with such an eternal problem as the condition of our roads, most of which can only be called directions.
The reasons for the appearance of small surface damages on the paintwork (LCP) of the car are sharp temperature changes in the weather, as well as gravel, crushed stone, ice crumbs falling on the car in winter.
From the point of view of economy, there is no need for constant repainting of those parts of the car that have damage, be it scratches on the surface of the hood, roof or doors of your car.
Such useful developments of specialists in this field as various kinds of corrective pencils, markers, kits and repair kits, presented mainly by foreign manufacturers, came to help in solving such problems with a car.
It is only important to know the principle of operation of such an invention as a wax pencil for removing scratches from a car paintwork, and to be able to apply it correctly.
Indications for use and characteristics of the means from scratches on the car
Wax pencil has become widespread in our country, similar products and their analogues are in high demand in the market of accessories for cars.
It is worth noting that in European countries, as well as in the USA, similar means for a car appeared a long time ago, and you will no longer surprise a sophisticated foreign motorist with them.It is available in a wide range of colors for various car brands: from black acrylic enamel to white mother-of-pearl.
Help! It is recommended to use a wax pencil to avoid the spread of corrosion and other destructive processes of metal parts of the car – wings, sills, doors, etc. , characteristic of frequent use and finding a car on the street, can turn into a through hole in the metal.
To avoid such problems, the elimination of small scratches on the car body must be timely and of high quality. It is not possible to use a pencil in all cases, or rather, only to eliminate certain types of damage to the car coating.
This is due to the fact that for such damage to the paintwork, in which not only the varnish coating and the pigment layer of the paint peel off, but there are deeper scratches with the removal of the ground layer up to the pure metal, more serious and durable materials and means must be used.
Such deep scratches can be observed on more susceptible to accidental mechanical stress, mainly in the longitudinal parts of the body – along the surface of the fenders and doors. The wax is only able to visually cover the characteristic minor damage on the car.
Consultant of the krasymavto.ru website for body repair
Ask a question
No matter how professionally the representatives of the advertising sphere try to convince us, these pencils and their analogues do not eliminate scratches, but only make them less noticeable.
Useful! Wax stick is a decorating agent consisting of a composite of waxes of natural and chemical (synthetic) origin, combined into a homogeneous mass using the so-called industrial (industrial) oil.
The pencil also contains a corrosion inhibitor and a coloring element (pigment). Corrosion inhibitor is a chemical compound or its composition, the presence of which in an aggressive environment slows down the process of metal corrosion.
How to use: preparatory measures and application
For self-elimination of minor scratches and damages the following is useful:
- alcohol-containing substances;
- rags or woolen cloth;
- Lint-free fabric;
The first stage is purification. It can be done with an ordinary damp cloth soaked in soapy water, then wipe the surface with a damp cloth that does not contain any cleaning agents, and then dry with a piece of dry and clean hygroscopic (absorbent) cloth.
The preparatory procedure will eliminate the presence of various kinds of micro-particles of dirt and dust on the damaged surface. The next stage of the preparatory measures is degreasing. Any available remedy will come in handy here, the main property of which is the breakdown of fats (lipids). Among the most common ones we can mention:
- pure medical alcohol;
- Solvents 646 and 650;
- high-octane gasoline; 90,096 90,095 xylene;
Use a lint-free cloth to apply the degreaser. White chintz is suitable for these purposes. Next, we proceed to applying a wax layer to the damage. It is necessary to manipulate with gentle movements, first across, and then along the scratch, paying attention to the smallest damage.
If a certain part of the excess wax gets on the adjacent undamaged areas, remove them with a napkin.
The most favorable body surface temperature for waxing is 20 ˚C, therefore, for the effectiveness of the procedure, it is worth using heating aids in the form of a heat gun or a construction hair dryer.Now the surface treated with a wax crayon needs to be polished with soft materials, for example, a piece of felt or woolen cloth.
Information! In the future, given the temporary nature of the wax coating, in order to prolong the service life of the latter, it is advised to avoid excessively frequent washing of the car.
In addition, it is advisable to exclude the long-term presence of the car on the street, especially in adverse weather conditions.

Remove the lid and press the tip of the pencil on some flat surface (such as a piece of paper). Pump until the paint appears on the paper. You may need to press the tip several times to pump the marker. This process may need to be repeated between layers.
Primer for removing deep chips and scratches,
A deeper scratch or deeper chip that damaged the surface of the soil (plastic), that already without a primer, is indispensable.Apply a primer to cover the scratched or chipped area. Wait 30 minutes, and then the paint can be applied, but if there is a need to sand the surface, then it is possible to use waterproof sandpaper of the size P800-P1500. Caution – Do not use solvent on the primed surface.
Pencil marker with paint Application

Pencil Marker Three-layer paint
The so-called three-layer paint, for example white mother-of-pearl – then you should use two markers. The first marker (the lower first layer or as it is also called the base layer, we apply as described above, like an ordinary paint with all the rules of drying), and then use the top layer of the second marker with a layer of mother-of-pearl in one layer with drying with the same approach, until you achieve the pearlescent effect of the factory color.
Pencil – marker Clear varnish Application of the Marker
After the last layer of paint has been applied and dried, a clear varnish is applied. Apply 1-2 coats of varnish with drying between coats for 10-20 minutes. Wait 30-40 minutes after the last layer of application and you can go by car, but if you need polishing, then I advise you to wait 1-2 weeks, and then polish the place of repair.

rules of application, pros and cons
A pencil for removing scratches from a car can become an indispensable assistant. It will come in handy at the moment when the car needs to quickly give a presentable appearance. Every motorist is familiar with a situation in which he has to drive with an annoying scratch on board, and there is no time to drive the car for repairs.Manufacturers offer different types of camouflage products that have their own advantages and disadvantages.
What is a car touch-up pencil
A car touch-up pencil is a device for masking damage on the surface of a car.
Manufacturers offer the following product modifications:
- proofreader, with regulation of paint or varnish supply;
- with 12ml brush.
When to use it
Use this pencil to mask shallow scratches and chips.It is used to quickly give a car a neat look.
Gel is intended for emergency elimination of chips, after hitting small stones. It evenly fills the cleavage hole.
The paint is applied to small scratches that become invisible. Liquid paint is suitable not only for metal, but also for masking light damage to the plastic of a vehicle.
Can a pencil replace a body repair at a service station
Despite all advertisers’ assurances, a pencil cannot replace a full body repair at a service station.
The thing is that the car body coating has several layers:
- Phosphate protective film. Protects metal from corrosion.
- Primer. Covers the phosphate film and prepares it for paint application.
- Base enamel. It is a protection against aggressive substances, serves for decorative purposes to diversify the appearance of the car.
- Clear varnish. It has two functions – giving shine to the coating and additional protection against impact.
Damage to the ground and metal surface requires immediate professional repair. Neither paint nor gel can protect the metal body from corrosion and subsequent deterioration.
For masking shallow chips and damage on varnish or plastic, paint is quite suitable. These cosmetic defects can wait.
Later, you will still need to visit a car workshop in order to carry out a high-quality removal of scratches.
How it Works
A pencil is a tube of paint inside.
There are several types of pencils, depending on the method of application:
- Like nail varnish. This model comes with a paint brush.
- Like drawing chalk. The polymer container contains paint, which is applied to the surface by pressing.
- Marker. A rod with capillaries is located inside the tube. When pressed, paint flows down the surface of the rod.
Various types of products for minor repairs of vehicles are on sale, both small jars or tubes, and whole sets in plastic packaging.But it is very easy to understand them.
By the type of fillers, pencils are:
- full-fledged tinting sets;
- wax products;
The molecular structure of gel sticks is similar to that of a car varnish. These pencils are available in tubes and are liquid products with a viscous consistency. Freezes for a long time.
Usually it is colorless and matches the color of the bodywork well.Thanks to this property, it is almost invisible.
Gel is intended for masking scratches of the upper varnish layer, which do not reach the paint. In fact, this is a simple touch-up of defects.
In its composition, a wax pencil for a car contains a mixture of natural and synthetic waxes, which contains industrial oil as a binder. In wax versions, there are corrosion inhibitors and a color pigment. Suitable for temporary sealing of very small scratches.
American and Chinese manufacturers supply their products to the Russian markets.
Most common trade marks:
- Fix it Pro. Their assortment consists mainly of quick-drying varnishes.
- Runway. Provides generic markers. They serve not only for marking, but also for corrosion protection and lubrication of mechanisms.
- Du-Pont. Supplied with a paint replenishing marker. The kit includes an acrylic filler with a solvent.
- Newton. Produces markers in a wide range of colors.
In addition, paints are supplied by official car dealers under their own brands. Motorists call them “original”.
How to use a pencil
Before painting over even small scratches, the damaged area must be carefully cleaned. This is a general requirement.
Rust must be completely removed. It is strictly forbidden to pour rust converter into scratches. This threatens to stain under the enamel.
When working with gel, the room temperature should be between +10 and +15 degrees Celsius (room temperature). It is necessary to dim the light, since under its influence the gels dry out quickly.
Algorithm of actions:
- Before proceeding with the repair with a gel pencil, you need to shake the bottle well.
- Press the bottle several times to fill the applicator.
- Fill in chips with a slight surplus.
- Remove any dye residues with a napkin.
- If the damage is deep, multiple fillings are required. In this case, you should wait for the previous layer to dry. A shallow scratch dries up to two days.
Work best in a warm room. Sometimes the wax needs to be warmed up before applying it. For this, a burner or heat gun is used.
- First, the cleaned surface is smeared across, and then along the scratch.
- After waxing, remove excess wax with a napkin.
- The wax itself is compacted inside the damage to the desired level.
- Then the surface is polished. For this, a special abrasive or felt applicator is used, which are usually additionally included in the instrument kit.
Pros and cons of using
The undoubted advantage of these markers is that you can quickly paint over a scratch or chip and drive a neat, clean car.This camouflage saves a lot of time for the car owner. And it’s cheaper than a thorough repair at a car repair shop.
But the markers actively advertised in various “shops on the couch” have one big drawback: they are absolutely not persistent, and they cannot mask deep damage. It will be easier and cheaper to use car polish.
Polymer crayons show great durability in use. You can even choose the right color, but not the fact that you will be able to find the right one.
They are suitable for plastic and metal parts.
