This question is specifically for felt tip pens and marker pens that contain a felt inner tube. The parts of the pen are: - the body case - the felt nib - the felt inner tube
I do not understand is why the ink within the felt inner tube moves up into the nib and then onto the surface in contact with the nib. Why does the ink not stay in the inner tube?
Please comment if you think any other tags should be applied to this question.
