    why is it that EVERY(10ish) time i try to make a homemade marker it leaks on me.... i always use chalkboard eraser felt and various bottles. roll on deoderant, sour spray shit, etc. and last time i made a tic tac marker it leaked sooooooooooooo badly.
    any tips?
    i definately wanna get the tic tac marker to work cuz i love wide nibs.

    word
    keep the shit in a plastic bag!

    the only markers that don't leak are gonna be like refilled zigs decos and shit, the 1246 mops leak with ink, not as much with paint but a bit... anything home made tends to leak because the nib is going to rub against the cap, that is if you're using shit that has a cap.... wrapping some electrical tape might help slow down leaks... even my workhorse mops leak a bit when they're almost full or if i'm not careful how i'm sitting or something with it pocketed.

    seriously though
    i can't imagine being able to make a tic tac marker that doesn't leak at least a little bit.

    yes "1246 mops" are the ones off oriental trader. 12 for $6.

    perhaps he didn't push the nib into the bottle hard enough. gotta push it all the way it, most the time it makes a click sound.

    rollin rollin rollin,
    keep that felt a' rollin',
    rollin rollin rollin,
    tag stars.

    yeah. got back from a run last night to michaels and office depot. no staz on mops, but staz on ink pads. and "concentrated pigment" i had already racked the felt for the staz ons, and went to office depot to find them. nuthin there, so i just got a whiteboard cleaner. rolled up the felt to use instead of the old tampon, because im too damn impatient to let it dry out, (it had all damn night) and getting ready to refill.

    and FYI

    Foray Whiteboard Cleaners open normaly, counter clockwise, same way as a coke bottle.that threw me off for like 10 minutes. had my hands on too many zigs and garden crafts. hahaha
