As you pull them out of the package, you may experience that your Scribit Plaster Markers are not drawing as dense and bright as you would expect.
Here's a quick guide on how to solve this!
Why does this happen?
The ink inside the Scribit Plaster Markers is a special chemical formula that is designed to turn transparent when it passes a certain temperature. Like every little magic, it comes with a price: if the ink is not activated for a long period of time, it temporarily loses some of its vividness and brightness.
This might happen when your first Scribit - or your 48 Plaster Marker Pack - arrives at your door after having traveled around the world.
What to do to avoid it?
First of all, you need to make sure to always put the cap on your markers and bring them back in the box after finishing with a drawing: this will prevent the pens from drying out. Please mind the perfect long-time position is to keep them horizontal inside the box far from any possible indoor heat, but if you will put them with the head down for 48 hours after a drawing, their visibility will increase.
What to do when this happens?
If you notice that your drawing is not as bright as it should, then you have to reactivate your Scribit Plaster Markers by shaking them until you see the tip being completely impregnated with ink.

The other typologies of Scribit Markers have different chemical formulas and shouldn't require this re-activation.
Please mind as strong vividness and brightness of the colors is anyway not achievable with this special ink technology. If for example, you're looking for an intense black coming for a standard black permanent marker, you should consider turning your standard plaster wall into a whiteboard surface thanks to dry-erase paint. In this case, our Scribit Original Whiteboard Markers are what you should look for.
