I sometimes travel with some of my crafts like to our daughters to work on cards by her. This is why I thought those prisma or copic colorless would be nice for traveling. I bought a set that has a 2 erasers, one sick looking pensil sharpener, a blending pencil and a pencil extender. What do you all use when your pencils get very short and hard to hold? Do you use pencil extenders? I read some members have used colorless blenders with some success. Has anyone used the copic one and refilled it? Has anyone tried blending with just plain alcohol? When ya smell the copic it has a alcohol smell. Thanks for the great info in this entire 73 thread pages I read. It took me about 4 days to get through them all but it was well more the time. Take Care you all
Wow! I am impressed. Feel free to jump in with questions (just put your pencils down first if you're jumping... might poke your eye out...)!

I have used a Copic blender with pencils when traveling, and it works fine... I have heard you can use the higher concentration of alcohol for blending just like OMS, but I can't handle the fumes so I haven't tried that yet.
