Every year at this time I attempt to make Valentine conversation hearts like the candy but with my own sayings. Each year I have tried a different permanent red marker (red pencil did not work for me). I like to finish my clay with Future but the red ink runs. This time I tried using some varathane first before the future and it ran. It doesnt just run but the red color fades a lot.  I don't know what else to try and am hoping someone here has a solution. Thank you.

Hi Hollyclay, Bummer about the running Red.Two things come to mind, neither have I ever tried. One would be to prepare the surface of your cured PC before you apply the marker by cleaning off any surface oils with alcohol.

Spraying a very light mist of PYMII over the dried marker in several very light coats, drying in between might also be a possibility

I'm looking forward to reading replies to your post because I need to find a thin tip permanent red marker that will work on PC, something I've never tried before. What brand of PC are you using? Do you remember the brands of permanent marker you've already tried over the years? That would be helpful for me to know so I'll know which brands NOT to try.

Thanks!

How about transfers?

Type up your sayings on a computer in a sans-serif font, make the text color red, flip  horizontally, and print on a color printer. Then apply as any transfer.

Should work, in theory!
