Never Buy Watercolor Paints Again (make Them With Dried Markers) !
Make watercolor paints using your dried-up markers. There's a lot of ink left in them!
If you have small kids (or even if you don't!) you can quickly end up with a pile of cap-less, dried-out markers.
Don't throw them out! There is still a lot of ink left in them. First, divide them by colors and get 5-6 small cups of water.
Using pliers, snap off the top or bottom of the marker (depends on your marker)
This will allow the inside ink stick to slide right out.
Place the ink sticks in cups of water (keeping same colors together)
Set aside (or in the sun) for a few days and you'll end up with bright, vibrant colors. You now have watercolor paints!
Use an old ice cube tray for holding your paints.
And paint away. Free, easy and fun!
