yeah, I like to draw graffiti so I thought it would be an interesting design. I was just wondering if I could draw all my art inside the body with the sharpie marker, then back it all with paint.

Sounds like I'm all good so...thanks!

Never worked for me...the paint distorts the marker(any brand) and runs...

do it on a test piece and do very light coats. Should be fine.

However, what I have seen more than anything is people just cutting the design in the masking and painting the lines black.

Do it on the outside of the body. Just peel off the film and your lines go away.

I wouldn't do it with anything besides water based paints. And of course be sure to let the marker dry completely before you paint.

well, I have the body fully prepped for paint, washed, dried, scotch bright whole body then washed again so prep is good.

I'll be sure to do light coats on the paint and let dry well before next coat so as to minimize the paint and marker mix. But at the same time...I will be drawing in the body tonight and painting later this week so the ink will have days to dry...whether or not that's necessary...I'll let yall know how it turns out.
