    Good idea! YES! These are dried out water-based markers. I'm actually turning them into liquid watercolor that paints beautifully. I just fill a clean baby food jar with water, tie about six dry markers with a rubber band, and set them in the top of the jar. I let them sit over night and watercolor is made! @Laiyin Ng @Jenn Estrella

    Make liquid watercolor paint out of old crusty dried markers. I don't have enough markers to do this, but it could be good for teachers.

    Turn your old, dried-up markers into water paint. All you need is rubber bands, baby food jars (or something similar), and your dry markers. Fill the jars with water. Band together the markers. Put the tips into the water. Let sit for 8+ hours.
