Default Empty Copic Markers and SU Reinkers?

I saw on Lisa Strahl's blog that she filled the empty copic markers with alcohol inks ... do you think this will work with SU reinkers if I want to make my own In-Color markers?

Thisis her blog entry about this.

TIA.

I can't imagine why it wouldn't work, as long as the empty copic really starts out dry and doesn't have any alcohol-based fluid in it to start with. I think it's a great idea, and may have to try it myself. ENABLER!

ETA: Ellen Hutson said that the empty copic really is dry in this post on her blog. I think you should go for it!

It should work, but it would probably be cheaper to buy the real markers JMHO

True, but for the In-Colors, there aren't any markers available

Good point I must have been super tired when I read her original post

I decided not to try it with the empty Copic markers ... was afraid to ruin it and waste my money and reinker ... I saw some Fantastix at Joann's (these were marked as coloring tools for dry and wet mediums) ... and there were instructions in the packaging how to make a custom marker ... so I took of the top of the reinker bottle so I can soak the tip of the Fantastix for a few seconds ... and it worked ... it's been 2 weeks now and my Cranberry Crisp marker is still working
