      I’m glad it was helpful for you Dori! Thanks for the feature!

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. Very helpful. May I ask I have a couple of copic nibs that have become rather sticky and hard is there a tutorial on how to clean them or do I have to buy new nibs. Thank you. I look forward to your reply. Regards Selina x

      You might have to new nibs but here’s what you do first… from this tut you have that cup of rubbing alcohol that you have the lids in, instead of lids pull out your gunky nibs and put them in the cup and swish them around. You’ll have to let them soak in there, maybe for a day or two, change out the rubbing alcohol once a day at least. You’ll be able to see when its cleaned out the old ink, the alcohol won’t be discolored from the soaking nibs. The nibs won’t be sterling white like they were originally most likely but that won’t affect whatever color you use them with later. I like to have spare nibs that I can switch out while the others soak, back ups. Let me know if you have questions and I hope this works for you!

    Have you ever tried the makeup remover cloths? I purchase at Walmart and they last forever. There are several brands but they all work well.
    I keep a PKG. In my art bar at all times.
    Walmart brand and Neutrogena or Walmart brands are great.

    • Kristy says:

      I hadn’t thought of that! My only concern would be the extra ingredients in the cloths, I wouldn’t know how they could affect the ink or nibs. The rubbing alcohol evaporates completely leaving no residue. I know they make the same type of cloths but without anything on them already, maybe a custom tub would be a great idea.
