    hmm. that never happened to me. I always have to pump mine alot to get the paint to even come into the nib. If you're in a hot area it might just be a bunch of built of air pressure, so you could stic in in the fridge for a while or something. I've never had a problem so I'm just guessing

    thanks for the fridge idea, i will try it, its just i mean, some decos, and paintys, like the other day, right after i racked some, i was right next to this dumpster, and i pulled out my deco, and i needed to get some paint in the nib, so i just barely pushed down, for the nib to go up into the pen, and it leaked everywhere...... like half the paint came out!..... sheesh! it sucks..... i didnt shake it though, would that have mattered... and all my paint markers like suck, when im on a canvas that has spray paint as a backround, they wont really come out, it comes out all crapy..... and shit.... then when i barely push, it fuckin poures out.... what do i need to do...?.............im gonna cry!......*sniff*

    simple dont use paint markers i prefer too use oil pastels that come in much better and cooler colours and depending on the type of pastel is much harder to buff than paint markers i rubbed off a tag with a paint marker with just a bit of water and my hand! they suck!

    ^^ thanks for the info, i never really shook them for a long time, i will give that a go, and stick em' in my fridge, see if these tips will work, man they really piss me off, they dont last very long at all, like today when i was doing some canvas work, i pumped and pumped it, shook it, for like 15 minutes and barely anything came out, and i pressed it againts the painted canves, the nib stuck to it, and came right out of the marker!!!!!! it fuckin pisses me off..... i dont get how people like DORK, and THIS paint thes awesome canvases with decos?????????!!!!

    i only uses decos for canvas. you have to shaek them alot so the xylene actually mixes with the paint and doesnt seperate in the nib it isnt hard
    to figure this out

    Yea I use decos on canvas all the time, and I only shake for like 30 seconds. Maybe I'm lucky and you're really unlucky or something. Oil rusto paint makes great refills for decos and painters. The silver doesn't need to be thinned, but I haven't used anything else much.

    hmm. all my decos have gold labels around the front part. maybe some dont, in that case, you can skip that step haha. dumb one, paint markers are the easiest things to rack, but i dont support it. In my michaels, theyre all the way in the back and its always empty in that place except for a few cashiers and one cleanup guy.
