Liquid watercolors

I love these.....

but I love these even more!!!!
What are they? you ask - well, being the art nerd that I am. I made these out of old dried up markers. I love recycling, using odd type materials for projects, etc. So one day while I was experimenting with a box full of discarded markers, I took them apart, cut them up, put them in jars and added a bit of water....and the result - concentrated watercolors. I love them!!!

I love this idea! I will use it and I will share it. I wish I had known about this years ago. I just think of all the markers that I have thrown away over the years. Now I have a nice "green" way to reuse them. Thanks for sharing!
