Blender Pen Tips & Refill!

I have a quick tip & tutorial for you today. I color a lot and the tips to my Blender Pens sometimes take a beating. It saddens me to throw them away as the remainder of the pen is perfect. I found this website that sells the replacement tips:

EDITED: I guess the web address on the business card is not correct so here is the direct link here:

which is: www.tips4markers.blogspot.com


I took the day yesterday to play with them and update some of my beat-up Blender Pens:


All you need is a pair of needle-nose pliers to pull off one end. See the little black pieces sitting next to the business card? That's what I pulled off. I then removed all of the tips and threw them away.


I added the new tips, plus two that were okay, into my bowl which had a "Blender Pen Refill" recipe that I made myself. I then added the "straws" that sit inside of the Blender Pen into the bowl also. After a while, I flipped the straws so that other ends were soaked.

 
Here is the recipe I used for the refill. I added it to a container that seals well for storage and re-use:
 
 1 oz. glycerin
2 oz. distilled water
3/4 teaspoon rubbing alcohol
 
Thanks for stopping by to visit!

  2. Oh Debbie, this is great news!!! I've been holding on to my SU Blender Pens, I too hate to throw them out. Thank you for the recipe, I think the only ingredient I don't have is the Glycerin but that can be remedied with a trip to the Pharmacy. My tips are also all smashed so it's great to know that you can buy them. I'm going to take a looksee at that web store.
    Happy Sunday!!
