 This will show how to make almost costless wide homemade markers.

Fairly easy to do, doesn't even need a tutorial for this, but might help you out with some advices and save you some time.

Materials


1. Platic Pipe (the diameter is up to you..)
2. Pipe lids (can be found where you buy pipes Smile )
3. Carpet
4. Sponge
5. Paint
6. Knife, Screwing Tool, Sandpaper

1. 
Cut the pipe into the size you want (i don't recommend larger than 10cm). Use the sandpaper to smooth the borders of the pipe.

2. Use the screwing tool (i'm not sure if thats the name), to create a screw on the pipe, so you can later on attach the lid. Do it on both sides, because you need a lid for the carpet/sponge tip, and another lid to refill the marker.

You can also paint the pipe (spray paint works) right now, or can do it later on.

3. Now the tricky part.. Depending on what kind of paint you're using, the carpet X sponge ratio will change. If your paint is very THICK, then you must use a lot more of SPONGE. Probally you will have to try a few times before you find the perfect ratio, so your marker won't be dripping or impermeable.

In this case, i was using a very thin paint, so thats why i'm using a lot of carpet. Roll the carpet, with the sponge inside, and place it inside the pipe.
Make sure its tight, or it's gonna fall. If it's not tight, add more sponge or carpet.

4. Rub the tip on the sand paper, or on a cement floor, so it will be smoother. (never forget to do this step if you're using a lot of carpet)

5. Fill your marker, and put the lids on Smile . Remember to always have the lid on, and the tip down.
