How to Make Alcohol Inks from Old Markers!

Kayte demonstrates a quick and easy way to repurpose old markers and turn their excess ink into bottles of alcohol inks to used in a variety of paint and dye projects! Whether it’s old Sharpie pens or even dried up Crayola makers, you can extract their pigments to make vibrant inks for staining glass or tinting resin. We test these inks on a 3D printed model and love the results!
