I wanted to make a Noodler's Blue Ghost marker, since I have read that Blue Ghost is hard to completely clean from a pen (not that you can see it normally though). Has anyone done this? I've gathered the supplies, an empty Copic marker, and Noodler's Blue Ghost. I did read online somewhere that mentions that you can put water-based ink into these markers, although Copics are meant for alcohol-based ink. I can't find any references to others who have done this, and I am afraid of spending all this time and effort to find it doesn't work.

Haven't tried it myself but water ought to be compatible with a wick. I doubt it will clog or explode. It might drip, since water doesn't evaporate as fast as alcohol, or misbehave in some subtle flow-related way since alcohol is thinner. If you're worried you could try thinning it with methanol/ethanol/isopropanol.

It works! Works perfectly. If you want to use an ink without risking a pen or just st don’t want to bother with a FP, it works, and it even comes as a double tipped marker, refillable and retippable. I would show pics, but as I used it to log all my updated passwords, I don’t want to blow my cover.

One tip, write with the Copic first. If write with plain ink first, any residual ink can be carried by the marker, leaving suspicious streaks.

You should also be able to use a Preppy marker, though you would need to add silicon grease and/or an o-ring.
