How To Refill your Micron and Pitt Pens!

I have a super easy tutorial that will save you some cash today! I’ll show you how to refill your waterproof Micron and Pitt artists pens with India ink in today’s video:

Easy huh? Who says these pens have to be disposable? I have another quick tip for you. If you have the skinny Pitt brush pens and the nib gets dull and frayed you can pull it out with a pair of tweezers and put it in backwards, there is a fresh tip on the other end of the nib! Cool huh? Have a great weekend and as always happy crafting!

  7. Lindsay, what are the uses for these pens? Is it for drawing and then watercoloring or can it be used with alcohol inks also? Also, can you
    give the sizes from thinnest to whatever, the numbers are confusing when you know nothing about these pens? Thank you.


  8. Great tip. I sent two pens to the garbage last week. Wish I could retrieve them now. I can’t believe that I’m hoping for another pen to run dry now.
    One additional idea. Wear cheep disposable gloves while working with permanent ink. Or decide that a black finger is a fashion statement for a couple days.


  9. Nice video! Am wondering if this can can work markers that have 2 different colors in them?
