Recycling the Old and Dry into Liquid Gold


 1. Rubber-banded 5 or 6 dried out water-based markers of a similar color together (I used Crayola and liqui-mark brands). I removed their marker tops and I'm saving those little goodies for another occasion.


 2. Pour water into glass baby food jars below the screw top area.

3. Put the color tips of the markers into the water and just let it be.  If you look closely at the green jar you can see the green seeping out.
The longer it sits the better.
4. Removed the markers and  test the coloured water on paper 

This is a great way to make  a really green and cheap way to make liquid watercolors.
