Problem with refilling Copic Markers ... HELP :O)

I bought the needles (refill boosters) to refill my copics. Now when I start to color it just pours out a blob of color! Arrgghh!!! I took a paper towel and soaked up as much thinking that maybe I overfilled it. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong or has anyone else had this problem?
Also I started using cryogen paper, and I'm having problems with it bleeding outside the lines. It blends better but I don't like it running outside the lines. Gina K doesn't do that...Arrgghhh! AGAIN...just not my day!
Thanks for any help, Hugs! Leah Ann

I just refill by dropping drops on the chisle end. I just watch my refill and put about a couple dash lines in. I don't use any needles. sorry you are having trouble.

Hi Leah, I use the drop method too, it's less messy and you don't tend to over fill your markers. Try mopping up the excess ink then take both caps off and lie the marker flat for a minute or too it can sometimes settle things down. I would try them with the paper you are used to until your markers settle
Good Luck Julie P
