Do you need to refill your blender pen?

I know most of you are very fond of your blender pens, I know I am! I want you to be able to use them as long as possible and spend your money on other things in the catalog so here is a recipe for refilling the pen. I have read that you only have to pull off the brush end of the pen and refill with this concoction:

1 part glycerin (can be found at walmart)
2 parts distilled water
1/4 tsp of rubbing alcohol

Or you can use this one:

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons glycerin
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol

You should mix these ingredients in an airtight container and use a syringe to fill the blender pen. I haven't tried this yet but I have read in several places on the internet that this works. I also read that you can mix this mixture with ink from refill bottles on a palette to watercoler with an aquapainter.

I know I haven't blogged any pictures in patient with me....I will get some out to you soon!! Enjoy!
