Default Copic Blender Pen Refill

Hello all......I refilled my Copic blender recently and ever since it has not been the same. It's like it's 'releasing' too much fluid when I use it. In other words it seem to be erasing way too much ink and even leaving a mark that almost looks like I put a drop of water on it? Any ideas?

TIA

That happens to me if I overfill my marker. Try absorbing some in a paper towel and then leaving the caps off both ends for a little while then test to see if your results are better.

Michelle....I can't thank you enough for your quick response. I'm going to try this right away and I'll let you know how it works.

Thanks again,

Hi Michelle.....I tried your fix and it DID stop the excessive flow....but somehow the pen just doesn't seem to be behaving the way it did. Maybe it's my imagination.

Thanks again!

hmmm it sounds like it is working the way it is supposed to. The colorless blender really just pushes the ink. Maybe your marker wasn't very juicy in the beginning and now it is extra juicy!
