Yes. Use a high quality low solvent clear and dust it on in 10-15 minute intervals and it shouldn't bleed or run. Played with this a lot growing up on decks and frames, and while doing vinyls on boats that customers wanted clear over. Talk with your local auto paint supplier, NOT YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE, and they will point you in the right direction. Paint has been changing over the last few years, there might be something different out now than the last time I checked.

Re: Sharpie work on a frame

BTW B.A. work, ask her if she would want to do one with paint pens for some cash.

Re: Sharpie work on a frame

^ it'll bleed with paint clear... how about clear powdercoat though? would that work or does the surface have to be absolutley bare/clean?

-that frame looks killer btw!

Re: Sharpie work on a frame

you should be fine with clear paint though, it looks like she's actually using a silver "paint stick" over flat black paint?

Re: Sharpie work on a frame

Very cool.
I have 2 extra frames laying around and I was gonna let the local library kids go crazy with paint pens.
The sharpie style looks rad.


Would like lots of bikes but the SE Hauler is one that has a lot of sentimental value to me. Anyone got one?

Re: Sharpie work on a frame

The key to covering this in clear is to dust it on with several layers at around 10 minute intervals as Jeno007 mentioned. I've done this before and it works pretty well. That is some pretty sick artwork!!!!!!

Sweet. I've been thinking about doing something similar for a while, just haven't pulled the trigger yet.
