So after reading the post about the edge dye rollers I decided it was time to make my old process better. Here's the old process . 20170618_153248_resized.jpg.7cf2f85246ddcd00ffaa2e9f833c43cc.jpg20170618_184331_resized.jpg.dcbff39cd92423233c102b449fcd44af.jpg it's a chunk of heavy felt clamped in a set of forceps, dip in USMC BLACK rub on edges, make a mistake,  say things that cannot be unsaid.  Fix mistake.  Move forward 20 minute later. Lol! Here's the new. 20170618_184156_resized.jpg.dde6b3034f526e09dfc872ca1b1b37c5.jpg20170618_184230_resized.jpg.56a42b3aeb3b8d8535748c048f6abd08.jpg

$5 empty Montana marker, fill with USMC BLACK (filler cap for tip is reverse thread)  get dye to flow to tip after a good shake, apply to edges, go to burnisher done 7 minutes! Very happy with results thanks to those who lead me to try this out.

Hi, I use an Italian edge coat with small machine /hand applicator. However, sometimes I need to use the old method with Fibings or simmilar. I always wanted one or several of these empty markes, but can't find them for sale where I live (Norway). Could you please send me a link to where to buy them. Thank you, Tor

I have looked at Hobby lobby, and a few other stores here in town but didn't find them, maybe didn't locate the right department.

Springfield Leather sells the Angelus versions of these in a few different tip sizes, Tandy has started selling a model of these as well.
