    Very cool, but in my experience with a Sharpie on a guitar finish, it fades pretty quickly.
    Hope yours holds up.

    No it is not I thought about that but with my luck something would go wrong. I will contact the artist and see what he would recommend.

    i would imagine a clear acrylic would protect the sharpie ink.

    I did contact the artist. He was he thinks he put a thin coat of spray clear poly or acrylic. Also to definitely not to use nitro because it resolves sharpie.
