Hey, has anybody ever tried applying various colors using Copic Markers?

I use acrylics and am also wondering if they can be over sprayed with acrylics or applied over acrylics and then sealed

I would hesitate to use them.

Google-based research indicates they are alcohol-based. Reports indicate that Sharpie markers, also alcohol-based, will bleed through any paint applied over them. Tamiya makes some paint markers; I've used them without any problems.

Yep. I know this is an old thread, but I just found those at my local Hobby Lobby yesterday. They make acrylic and the lacquer-based ones as well. By the way, Sharpie groups these together by color and content type in the store display so you have to look closely to make sure what you are indeed picking up.

Red Sharpie permanent markers are excellent for the red edge to USN gear bay doors, it is important to seal with Klear/Future before final varnish.

Black ones are ideal for walkway lines but seal as before.
