Dude. Seriously, DUDE. What can i say about these babies that hasn't already been said? Oh yeah, after you remove that scab from the marker, you can pretty easily melt the stuff into say... an empty glue stick. :) I did it with a black and silver hobo and it's writes like a mofo. As for melting the stuff, sadly the melting point is above boiling water temp, so i had to use a heat gun to do it. be aware, the stuff stinks. So do it in a WELL VENTILATED area. I also melted it in a soda can that I then used to pour it into the glue stick. All in all it took me maybe 20 minutes to manufacture this guy. But the best part is, no scab. I just remove the cap and write.
Just got one in Gold and Silver. These guys were exactly what i was looking for. Wide metallic paint markers. Specifically the gold one. Looks amazing and I'm super happy with the purchase. Oh, so yano how GR always says to shake your cans? SHAKE THESE PENS. If not there tends to be some separation in the paint that comes out.
HOLY F**K these are even better than i thought. They're seriously a joy to write with, especially with my big @$$ hammy hands. The metallics are amazing. I was however a little surprised by the red. Specifically because I was using it on a test page with some marker work on it. (both magic ink, chartpak, and pilot) It was like it went through a black hole and was sucked up into the marker. I'll need to play with it a little more to see how many coats it takes to cover. (as i'm sitting here i did a quick test. Took maybe 17 passes to completely go over the black marker. Might just be my ignorance and inexperience with paint markers)
Don't even hesitate to pick this gold marker up. It's just awesome. Medium point just like the description. Great for outlines in black books or slaps. If you're gonna do a fill, i'd recommend something a little larger... but hot damn I wish i would've grabbed a couple of these.
I've recently picked one of these up after having had Pilot Jumbos for years. Holy F**K this thing is awesome. It's physically a little larger than the Jumbo but the nib is a LOT fatter. It's fun to write with this. I just wish it were available in more of the magic in colors. But the fact that it's refillable is huge to me.
