Default SU and alcohol based markers?

Given all the interest there seems to be out there for copics (or other alcohol based markers, do you think SU would ever come out with alcohol based markers? I was just looking at a tutorial on a blog for a card colored with prismacolor markers and was thinking it would be neat if SU made their own using their own colors. Anybody think this might be something we see in the future?

Or even pencils to be used with gamsol? I'd probably buy them!

I doubt it. The prices are high, there's a lot of competition for them already and I think they like to find other ways to make their current markers more versatile and similar to Copics w/o spending the bucks...

But who knows - maybe they'll come out with them in the fall! That would be kind of cool!

You can make your own in-color markers by using an in-color refill and either a blender pen or a versamarker. I made mine using a versamarker so I can emboss it. There are several posts on how to do it but I just put a few drops of refill ink in the end of my versamarker and they work great. I put an address label with the name and a swipe of color so I know what is inside the marker.

Alcohol is dirt cheap. Personally, I think it would be awesome if SU offered some in some of their colors and priced them significantly below Copics, which IMHO are overpriced (although I buy them anyway!!).

I have bought the copic blender pens and filled it with the classic ink refill and it works great. I did this with one of the first in colors because I loved it so much and had no problems with it.
