Revive Your Dry and Discoloured Paint Pens! 🖊

As a cherished member of our creative community, we understand how important it is to keep your artistic tools in perfect condition. So today, we'd like to address a common concern - dried-out or discoloured paint pens - and share some useful tips to bring them back to life!

If your Surfpaints pens have dried out or lost their original vibrancy, fear not! We've got you covered with these 3 easy steps:
1. Shake it up: Give the pen a good shake to mix the pigments and the paint's medium thoroughly.
2. Prime the nib: Press the nib gently on a spare surface or a piece of scrap paper to initiate the flow of paint. This helps in breaking the dry seal.
3. Soak it: If the paint has completely dried out, immerse the nib in water for a few minutes. This will rehydrate the paint and restore its flow.

After following the above steps, try it on your art surface to ensure the paint is flowing smoothly again.

We hope these tips help you rejuvenate your pens and unleash your creativity once more!
