Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share with you today the joy's of Various Ink Refills :) Now i have to admit i was aware that you could buy refills for Copic markers but because i consider myself a little clumsy most of the time i thought i would end up with ink everywhere except in the pen...how wrong i was and how pleased i am i decided to try it out....easy peasy and far more cost effective ( £5.75 ) than buying a brand new pen each time it runs out.
Tis all you need, your chosen colour and the tweezers to remove the nib
There's even a guide on the bottle, better to under fill than over fill otherwise you may have ink leaking.
The nib is easily pulled from the barrel...edited, thank you Cass for the correction, here it tells you NOT to remove the brush tip but refill at the chiseled end...mine seems ok but I'd hate to advise you incorrectly.
You can see if you look at the nozzle on the refill bottle that there is a well of ink sitting there due to a valve so you are in control of how fast the ink will leave the bottle, a gentle squeeze is enough. Once you've finished just push the nib firmly back into place. SIMPLES :)
So economically it makes huge sense to refill the pens, one bottle Should refill a sketch marker 12 to 13 times and a ciao up to 17 times !
I buy my Copic's here at Cult Pens, click on the link and it will take you to the refills, the little button on my sidebar will take you to the whole range that they have which is in my opinion the best I've seen, they also have the brand new pale colour set....sigh..tis on my wish list :)
Back later with some cards x
