I don't use them for what they are intended, which I think is to use them to blend the color for other copics to make the shades lighter and blend. I use it with a refill and make markers for the SU in colors since they don't make markers in them. I don't care for the blender pen method and while this is a bit pricier, I love it! They work great.

From what I understand, the "job" of the copic blender ( and the Prismacolor marker blender) is NOT what we normally think of when we think of the SU, Tombow, Marvy and Dove blenders.

The alcohol blenders are used to lift or remove color in order to do what they refer to as "fade to white." The actual shaing (or blending) is really done with the different colors of the copics themselves.

Please, someone correct me if I am under the wrong impression.

What I use it most for is to erase stray coloring marks from my colored Copics. I also use it to add highlights in areas that are too solid, and to lighten colored areas that are darker than I want. Here's a link to give you more info on it...
