I found these beautiful butterflies on etsy and martha stewart and was wanting to try to make my own http://www.etsy.com/listing/45186422/martha-stewart-replica-wedding-cake

that being said I have tried them.I bought some transparency film (not the kind you can print on, only write). I used the pigma micron pens in black to outline it. That worked great but I used sharpies to try to fill it in and it bleeds, beads and smeared the black. Then I tried prisma color markers and it worked a little better but still beads a bit. That being said before I invest in any more expensive pens can anyone recommend some pens that wont bead, bleed or smear that I can use.

Thanks for any help.

I did a project with transparencies a few years back using only black, and I was never able to get anything to work at home, despite trying a few different brands of acetate & transparencies. I wound up having to go to Kinko's to have my images printed with a laser printer, which worked well for both color and black and white. I'm sorry if that's not much help, but I'd just like to save you the extra money I spent on those various products.

Have you asked at an art supply store? They may let you test a marker on your transparency or have advice for a good product for you.
