Can you use Coptic markers,or any other brand, or do they have to be Sharpies? Also, my alcohol is 99%; is that okay to use, or does it have to be 91% exactly?


I am not sure about the markers, as I have only tried sharpies. I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. As for the alcohol, the 99% should work just the same. I used a 71% one time, and that worked too, it just took a lot longer to get the ink out and make the colors.
