Hi all, just thought I'd share with anyone who's interested a little something I discovered whilst colouring an image recently. I was using a pale shade and fading it out to nothing using my blender pen. About half way through the blender pen ran dry! Disaster loomed cos you know you can't let your ink dry and resume the next day or after you've refilled because you can see the join. Luckily, the chisel end of the pen still had some juice in it, so I was able to complete my project, but the chisel tip wouldn't have been too chunky for some work, so what then? It made me realise that if it's a colour you use in every project and rely on, like the blender pen or your favourite skin colour, then it's a good idea to have 2 of those markers so that if you do run dry you can go seamlessly to your other marker.
I have now got myself a nice new Sketch blender as well as my Ciao, plus a bottle of Various Ink to refill, so I can at least sleep at night now.
