removing sharpie pen from an 8x10
Posted 09 August 2011 - 08:22 PM
I really need to remove this personalisation so he can sign my cast shot! I've been advised to use acetone nail varnish on a recent auto signed incorrectly by a guest but that sharpie is silver and was only done like last weekend! this is black and has literally been on there since 2005/6
also I'm a bit worried if I use acetone and then I get to re-signed that it might end up ruining my cast shot, which has several signetures on
please advise! I leave for Chicago next Weds so have to sort this out smartish!
thanks in advance!

The dry erase marker is something US friends of mine swear on, haven't tried it myself.
I have just tried a test run with black sharpie on glossy shot and acetone free nail polished remover worked fine.
But I am really not sure if I would risk it on an over 5 year old multisigned piece.
Likely to squee at high frequencies!

I've done that on things a few years old. Some with better sucess than others. Depends on the background.
But yeah, its risky.

A lot of people i know are now using this method particularly good for when you have got smudges on your item , have used it myself and it does work just not sure about it working on an 'older' piece.

seems I was talking crap last time I posted (and I can't even blame the hour!!!) I've got the cast shot and it is signed in silver yey! so hopefully this will make it come off easier the other sigs are Gates, Brent and Levar so wouldn't be tooo hard to get them again, if it all goes wrong, but as it has got £75 worth of autos on it, let's be careful...!
