NOT WHITEBOARD!!! whiteboard erasers are for toys that cant figure it out..not that im saying youre necessarily a toy, just uninformed...if you're lucky, lots of schools buy blackboard erasers because theyre cheaper sometimes, so you can rack em easy. anyways, heres the link to the kind of eraser youre gonna want.

hope you can find one.

 

on another note, ive realized that when you replace the kiwi nib with eraser, the size of the mark gets smaller and streaky. so basically, ive decided that its easier to buy the $1 on sale ones at your local grocery store and use them as is with your own ink of course. I know they wear fast, but not that fast. plus, that nib juices up real quick. and gives nice drips and coverage. anyone agree?

super glue the bottom and then super glue the bottom on the outside and wrap that little epart with electrical tape. Thats how i used to do mines when ihad one.

i've been using dippers for a long time now, almost always with inks, but im getting really anoyed by the fact that they break (tear off) so easily....

i've tried putting cloth around it, extra glue etc etc, but all i end up with is a dippermarker that doesnt write as good/ drip as nice....I just want it to not tear of the plastic

does anyone have a suggestion???

maybe just a picture on how you solved it...if you don't want the world to know how just PM me

how would you make a streaker??

 

you wouldn't. you would go to office max/depot and pay the three dollars for one...or rack it...but its only three bucks so it would seem kinda gay too. its with the other markers. i barely found mine so look hard. :king:

Oh...yeah, I call those mops-whatever...and, the tips do that, usually if exposed to solvents or brick walls...that's why I don't use them so much anymore, and stick tothese bad boys...

 

But, I used to get the round cosmetic sponges and use them as replacement tips...they are a higher grade of foam that holds up well to solvents. Look for them at drugstores...glue 'em on w/superglue or barge cement, them trim 'em down...or, I used to be the asshole who would just steal five valves for every mop I stole. Thought I'd throw that out there.

 

Those Bluepath pens are the shit since they are actually made for drawing and are smaller, and thus, easier to use. The only catch to these is that the ink or paint that you use can't be too thick, since the valve is smaller and more prone to clogging. And, they're pricey and they are really hard to find in stores, but that link is where I get them from, in a pinch...I've been using them for years, and will often buy a store's entire stock when they pop up. That's a ringing endorsement from a cheapskate like yours truly.

You cant refill a mean streak.

Ahhhhh....I know how...it's easy, and cheap if you can find the

"refills", but it is easier to replace them 95% of the time.

 

As far as doing the chemistry yourself, here's a big clue- the idea of a streak is to stabilize paint to work in a range of enviroments. So, the idea is that you have to lowering its viscosity, and then add chemicals to facilitate its use under any conditions. The main additive I know of in streaks is glycol, AKA antifreeze, which gives streakers that sweet smell. Glycol is also an ingredient in brake fluid, coincindentally. I don't really want to go into how to thicken paint here, seeing as how most people won't bother, but there are books about it out there.

 

Guess all that time I hung out at the paint store paid off...

you just pull out the plastic piece and push the sponge in. that plastic piece is useless once the origiinal nib is gone. or at least i have always found it to be.

Hey, metro...the sponges I'm talking about are marketed in the states by Mary Kay, and I got them at Walgreens. They're about 2" in diameter, 1/4" thick and they come in a 50 count bag. (File this under Embarrassing Things Your Girlfriend Has You Buy At The Store between romance novels and tampons.) I used a hot glue gun to attach it, then trimmed the edge w/a Xacto knife.
