      Make water color paints by using old markers soaked 4 at least 8 hours or overnight in baby food jars of water with rubber bands to secure markers so they don't fall over to make wonderful watercolor paint!

      Dried out watercolor markers turned into liquid watercolor paints! What a great way to recycle!!! This comes from amanda0480.blogsp... great idea!!!

      I just did this with our dried out markers and it works amazingly well!!! I used old baby food jars and my son just made 2 beautiful photos. It works better than prang watercolors! I wish I would've known this when I was teaching...oh the markers I wasted!! A new use for old markers - liquid watercolor paint!

      I can't believe I've been throwing out all my old markers! Old markers make liquid watercolor paint. 1. Rubber-band 5 or 6 dried out water-based markers of a similar color together. 2. Then pour water into baby food jars so you'll be able to store them later with caps. 3. Put the color tips of the marker into the water. The longer it sits the better. 8 hours-16 hours. 4. Remove the markers and throw them away. A really green and cheap way to make liquid watercolors
