    Default Can I touch up a film positive with a sharpie?

    Hi there,
    I would like to add a bit more trapping to a bottom layer of color. Instead of having another film positive made, could I just take a sharpie and draw an outline around those shapes? I don't need it to expose razor sharp or anything. Just give me a 1/8 inch more to my shape.
    What do you think?

    I've done it before. I've also used my brush pen and that works even better.

    Sharpie has never worked for me. Steve Walters always reminds me which pens seem to work best. PM steve.

    Sharpie makes a paint pen which works just fine but a regular sharpie likely won't do it.

    paint markers, Ident-i-pens, most anything that's labeled "opaque, permanent, and waterproof"
    regular sharpies are transparent and will wipe off of film
