    You should be able to add to ANY empty markers, Molotow, OTR etc
    Also mops and you can use it many ways, with brushes. Sponges whatever you can think of

    If you racked it from School im going to assume you're young and in High School? If so look thru your parents stuff, seek some shit they might have.
    1. Black Paint Enamel.
    2. Paint Thinner
    3. Brake Fluid (if 1 Is not available)

    Ok so add 1 to your ink and mix it, if it's too thick for your markers or mops just add a lil of 2 to make it thinner and find the consistency you're looking for. 3. Is only an option if 1 isn't available. Just add 3 with the ink. However it eats thru plastic over time so if you're storing a lot of ink at once than use a glass jar. And the inside of markers you use will begin to rot after time. But yeah it's basically up to you whatever you feel comfortable. But be safe and use proper health equipment. Those Chemicals are not to be fucked with or breathing in. Plus do that outside! Not Indoors please.


    Id recommend to add Rustoleum Black Paint Enamel to your ink. And maybe a lil thinner. Peace n be safe

    So i put it in a molotow empty pump action marker and it seems like the pigments get stuck up in the felt-tip. The tags look super watery and not even close to the bronze colour i recieve with my mop. I shaked the hell out of it before filling it in and pumping. I tested on paper, concrete, metal and wood.

    Edit: i just tried again and again and it got better slowly to the point where the bronze colour comes out pretty much perfectly. Thanks @SeagerOner

    What marker to draw an outline? It's about drawing on a sheet of paper. How many mm should the tip have? Time to finish drawing with a pen. Sorry for my English

    Definitely not the best ink recipe, but it's a classic.

    im 14 and have a budget of 30 a month for paint with the occasional job here and there so ive resorted to racking my shit. I'm from DC and i buy sum of my stuff from the blick near me id rack but i know all the people that work there so i feel shitty for stealing shit. Staples has jack shit but easy to steal (white out pens mainly) anyone know spots where it would be easy to rack half decent shit? Specifically markers.

    My favorite is Krink K-60 paint markers, I like how there are protection caps for each of the bottles in 15 pigmented shades. The large round tip of 15mm would be ideal for applying permanent paint on smooth surfaces like metal, coated paper and glass, etc. All you need to do is squeeze this bottle for a moderate amount and spread it out to start painting.

    Hobby lobby and Joann fabrics would be the best to start racking at. Hobby lobby has ironlak and little packs of caps and Joann has unis and other markers. Once your comfortable there u can work ur way up to stores like home Depot and shit. Or jus do a push out with a cart with some cans in it then throw your coat on top and leave.

    Any tips for using the rollerball? Just got one in this week. Still learning how to use it.

    Also has anyone tried or heard of Forney oil based paint markers? If so any thoughts on them?

    Was curious if anybody had tips for using homemade ink in a dollar general marker? Specifically it's the "artskills" jumbo permanent marker. Took the ink sponge out and added my own ink but leaks like a dead hooker on a Sunday morning... noticed there's a gap between the nib and part of the housing, would hot glue be a good fix? Or any suggestions really, essentially it's now gravity fed like a jumbo pilot. The gap is on side of nib in 1st pic if that helps any.
