Question Copics marker question

I just bought a new copic sketch marker and on the wedge end it is longer than my other copic sketch markers. It looks like it was pulled out further. Will it dry out faster like this or will it be okay?
Thank you

Have you tried pushing it back in just a little bit? The nibs are designed to be removed and replaced, so it may not have been installed all the way for whatever reason. I have a couple that are like that, but I almost always only use the brush end, so I never notice unless I accidentally open the "wrong" side.

SkyNacho,

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it and it worked. I was afraid I would break it off but it went back in. I was also afraid that leaving it like that it would dry the marker faster. I feel so dumb now. I also only use the brush end but maybe in the future will want to use the wedge end.

You aren't dumb at all - and I always think it is wiser to ask first before potentially ruining something. I would have asked exactly the same question There are always lots of friendly people around SCS to help with big and little questions so never be afraid to ask

Thank you, I appreciate you understanding. I should have tried it first but like I said, I was afraid of ruining it and they are so expensive.
There are a lot of good people on SCS. By the way, I love your avatar and your cards are beautiful.

Awww, you're a sweetie (blush, blush) My avatar is my cat Ruby who was all stretched out in front of our open fire last winter looking so blissful. It was one of those rare moments when my cat actually stayed still for the photo - she was just soaking up the warmth and didn't even notice I was there!

The nibs are made to be replaced, so pulling them out and pushing them in won't hurt them. (The chisel nib is a bit sturdier and can be pushed and pulled without any issue.) If you are going to remove the brush nib, you want to use a pair of tweezers (not the slanted, pointy ones) to firmly grip the very bottom of the nib (closest to the barrel) and gently pull. While the brush nibs are super flexible, they can separate if pulled and tugged a lot.

If you airbrush with your markers, you typically use the chisel nib, and sometimes that is pushed in too far, so if you are airbrushing and it seems like nothing is happening, you can gently pull the chisel nib out just a hair to get it to line up with the air flow.

This won't hurt your marker or make it dry out any faster.

HTH...
