      I have an absolute fav pastel pink chalk ink catseye, its drying out… 🙁
      Does anyone know if chalk inks can be rejuvenated?

        I've never tried it but maybe mini misting with water. If you're going to toss it it might be worth a try to get another couple uses.

          There may be a reinker. I know they make reinkers for the chestnut roan color. I bet they do for your pink one. Send Krissy an email- she MIGHT be able to order one if they exist. I tried to look online, but I didn't find any, and Colorbox doesn't have an online catalog.

            Once the ink runs out of the catseye I just throw it out because the sponge is nearly gone.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              Me too, Ang. I am so rough with mine. I rub them on distressed paper- most of the pads fall off before they dry out.

                  For the above reason, I toss them, too. Actually, they usually wear out long before the ink goes.

                    The Prima ones hold up the best, but I have had a few where they weren't glued on right- the whole sponge comes off and you can't even see which side was glued. I'm on my sixth branch bark, and my third black.

                    Ranger makes an ink refresher that works with chalk ink pads. I get it @ Joanns or Michaels (I can't remember which). It's a spray bottle and will be with the samp cleaners.

                    You can use super glue or E6000 glue to reglue a detached pad back in place, but you need to leave it totally alone for 24 hours.

                      Thanks, Monica. 🙂

                      I have tried super glue, and I did leave it alone. NO clue why. I will buy some E6000 and see if that works.

                      No prob! It doesn't always work, but most of the time it will.

                        I have had to glue it back together twice ;D
                        And now the pad is starting to disintegrate 🙁

                        Guess I'll just have to buy another one, I'll take it with me so I get a color close to it

                        Thanks for everyones help
