Water-based paint marker on a fiberglass arm cast?
posted by dondiego87 to health & fitness (5 answers total)
I recently broke a bone in my wrist and was put in a long-arm fiberglass cast with a waterproof liner. I chose black for the color and I thought that it would look really sharp to get people to sign it with a gold metallic marker. Well, Sharpie makes silver metallic markers, but the only gold one I could find actually uses water-based paint. I was wondering if that would be all right to use on my cast. Things I'm worried about specifically are it bleeding through and messing with my skin, and also whether it might wash off (which can be figured out through trial and error if my first concern is not a problem).
Thanks as always!
