Sealing Sharpie Paint Against the Elements

commentsI test water-fastness of Sharpie Paint Pens in both Oil-based and Water-based formulas, after I’ve sealed them with a clear acrylic matte sealer. I use Sharpie Paint Markers on a rock and on painted metal boxes and then show you how to make your design permanent to hold up to water and every day wear and tear.

I have many other videos on this topic, that you might be interested in watching:

    This is really cool! I’ve not made many Sharpie paint pen projects. I always wondered if the ink/paint would hold up. I can see that the water based would hold up really well on most projects. I think I’m going to make some garden decorations with the kids as soon as we get a nice, warm weekend. Thanks for showing your test of how well both hold up with a sealer!

    Just watched your oil based you tube and I have one suggestion when filming. Hold your paint pens very still. It was a little hard to watch with all the shaking of the pens and hand jesters. Otherwise very informative, thanks for putting this info out there.
