I'm tired of buying whole packs of multi-colored edible markers when all I really want is the black. I keep running out of the black, and I'm accumulating piles of the other colors that I never use. I tried searching online, but finding it difficult to buy just black colored markers. Can anyone here provide any information or links.

Thanks in advance!

You know, I bought a set of the kopy kake markers and none of them worked straight from the package. I was so irritated. I asked advice on what to do, and people told me about taking out the part that writes (it pulls right out) and letting it soak in airbrush color. I've been doing that ever since and havent had to buy new ones. I use the black all the time, but when it dries out I just soak it in the airbrush color for a while and its good to go for a few more months. It takes at least 20 minutes of soaking it seems, but it works. icon_smile.gif Better than buying new sets for just one color. I dont know what brand you have or if you could do the same thing with your markers, but I just thought Id share what helped me.

thats what i was going to suggest. Sometimes the back end of the marker can be pulled out and you can drip some AB colour into the wick inside.

Great suggestions! Now does that use up a lot of the AB ink? If so, wouldn't it cost the same thing?
