Tips to get more life out of old tips


Since I’ve been on the subject of brush pens, I thought I’d share a tip for getting more mileage out of the brush tips in Faber-Castell PITT Brush pens. All you need to do is use a rag or paper towel and gently grab the worn out tip of the pen and pull. Out it will pop and on the reverse end will be a brand-new and hopefully much finer point on the other end. Just insert the tip back in to the pen gently, holding the tip with your towel on the sides. Don’t push on the tip to reinsert it or you’ll squash the nice crisp point. Hopefully, this will help you get a few more pages out of your PITT brush pens.

I haven’t tried this with any other disposable brush pen but if its one-step away from the trash can, it might be worth trying this technique to try to keep it working for you as long as possible.

Keep the pointy side sharp!
