Another thing I do in a hurry is just huff on it, like you do on a stamp you've been coloring with markers. Sometimes that is enough. Of course, sometimes I hyperventilate.

I have some Perfect Ink Refresher... I think it is first and foremost formulated for Ranger inks, especially the regular dye based ones. (I haven't tried it on the Distress Inks... has anyone else?) That is what I use it for and it is great for keeping the dye pads moist. I like it a lot for the Big & Juicy pads -- too much reinking of those seems to get the colors less vivid from running together. I don't think it should be used with permanent inks, since the ink base is different. I tried it on a Fluid Chalk ink pad, but it altered the color.

That's my bit of experience... OH! Almost forgot! I did use PIR to refresh some very old dye ink markers by Marvy that someone gave me. They are working like new! I did that about 2 years back and they still work great.

hugs!

Purmima,
Thank you so much for your reply and information. You said,"I did use PIR to refresh some very old dye ink markers by Marvy that someone gave me. They are working like new! I did that about 2 years back and they still work great." Can you please tell me what "PIR" is?

It occurred to me that I could take my Whisper ink pads and re-ink them with similar color Marvy reinkers and thanks to this thread I know how to do just that.

The Whisper colors are okay but Marvy reinkers are more readily available. My LRSS usually carries them and they are sold at the Heirloom conventions too. Guess I need to get around to making a color sample sheet of all those colors before the next convention.
