    rubbing alcohol will make it thinner/waterier. you need to find an additive that will disolve in the ink and make it thicker. Idk what do for that^ tho, sounds like a waste of time... but if you cant find any powder additive like RIT, which you can find at osh and other hardware stores, then you can settle for kool aid. add how ever much you want depending upon how thick you want to make it, it might work. And if it doesnt, try other things that will disolve in liquid and put it in

    ok, so my question is, how do i go about getting the cleanest/most crisp lines possible with markers in my blackbook, i notice some peoples peices just look so crisp, each line is perfectly clean, crisp edges. is there any techniques or anything that could help me produce clean lines consistantly. any help would be apreciated.

    practice. or use a micron/finetip pen, and thicken all your lines so theyre clean

    @mn I answere your question about the dabber ink, but for some reason the post either got deleted or didnt work. Dont use rubbing alcohol, that makes in thinner stupido. Try and find some RIT, its an additive powder to make ink and you can find it at hardware stores. You need to find something to put in it to make it thicker, wether it be powder or a thicker liquid. Dont put in any thin liquids

    Clean, crisp marker lines come from drawing quickly. You just have to know when to stop your hand from moving so you don't go over lines. The less you move your hand, the better. You want one, perfect, straight line.

    first, change your signature because art isnt a weapon. Second, go to the store and buy a pencil, an eraser, a fine tip pen, and some paper. Last sketch sketch sketch sketch sketch sketch.

    cop some markers or some mops or something and work on your handies, once you get a good hand with a pen or mop try using a spray can. Sketch a lot, and once you can rock a good simp on paper, then go cop some paint and try it on a wall
