    Pigma Microns markers’ ink is not permanent on glass or plastic surfaces. Since these surfaces are usually smooth and non-porous, it is difficult for the ink to adhere well to them.

    1 )What’s the name of the refill ink for the pigma micron pen?
    2 ) How much does it cost, and where can I buy it ?
    I live in Nigeria, so I have to make provision for a refill before I order them online.
    Thanks Shelby.

    1. As far as I know, these pens aren’t refillable, unfortunately! However, if you want to grab a refillable drawing pen, I’d check out the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. It’s different from these pens in that it’s a bristle brush tip, but it’s easily refillable and very useful for drawing and lettering!

  3. I recently bought Sakura micron pen for the first time, but it got clogged on the first use.
    Has it ever happened with you? I would appreciate if you could share some tips on how to avoid clogging.
    I also wanna ask if the pen works fine on pencil and watercolors or not?

    1. I’m sorry that your pen wasn’t working smoothly! I recently had a similar issue with a different brand of pen and I was so bummed. I was able to get it flowing again by filling up a glass with hot water, setting the uncapped pen nib side down in the glass, and letting it sit there for 10+ minutes. After it sat in the water, I pulled it out and let it be for a few hours, and when I tried again, it worked.

      The best advice I have for keeping your pen from drying out again is to either store it nib side down in a cup or flat in a drawer, but never nib side up! That will make the ink settle away from the nib and contribute to it drying out faster. And yes, my Sakura microns work great with watercolors! However, I always recommend you do a test sheet to give it a try before committing to a full project just to be safe.

      I hope that helps!
