Refilling Copic Ciao Markers 

I made a short video showing how to refill Copic Ciao markers. Now on principle I doubt I will buy any more of the Ciao series of markers. I don’t like that they aren’t supposed to be refilled. Seems like a lot of waste for such expensive markers. Don’t get me wrong, the markers are great and I think Copic has a good pigment load, one of the best even. 
I took the Letraset extender fluid which I believe to be simple denatured alcohol forced the markers open and filled.  Now the great pigment load is the great feature that makes this possible. Granted over time the color will get lighter with each consecutive refill as I am not adding pigment only more carrier.
