I used a Sharpie paint pen on this bike.

I've used ultra fine tip paint pens a few times and was really pleased with the results. One was all chrome and on the first try the adhesion of the paint was poor. From the internet I found Elmers ProBond Advanced which drys perfectly clear. I applied a base coat of the Probond about the lugs with a fine paint brush, lined the lined the lugs with the paint pen, and then applied a top coat with the ProBond.

This was done with a Sharpie brand oil based fine tipped paint pen. IIRC, I cut the tip with an X-Acto knife to make it narrower...

Maybe I’ve been spending too much time on the thread with that Huffy with Campy gear installed…
But now I want to see a Cannondale frame with lug lining. No lugs, just the lining. Maybe a nervex or a prugnat profile…

Oy! I don't know if I have that much patience. I can barely wait for the primer to dry before applying the color. So far I've only done clunkers. I'm planning to paint my Mercian as soon as the weather is suitable. I want this one to be a keeper, so maybe I'll have to find a way to make myself wait.

I’m convinced that if we don’t wait for each thin coat to completely dry before adding the next coat, it may never get dry and hard when the layers pile up and seal the soft paint below. I read something to that effect on Randy’s old 10 speed site. So I painted on the weekend and brought the frame and fork inside during the week. It was winter so I put it over the heater vent and if it was sunny, I put it in the car. Each coat sands better after a week of drying also.

Fluid writers arrived over the weekend. I’ll do some experimenting next week.
