    Maybe, but I'd use paint. Sharpies are only good for really small details.

    I used a pink Gundam marker. that is surprisingly effective to paint PRID stuff.

    np, just a tip/ reminder: use top coat to seal in the paint to prevent it from stretching. :)

    Sharpies don't work on anything. They are cheap-looking, temporary fixes at best. Spring for some actual paint and a brush.

    I personally think sharpie does work. Just remember to get a sharpie pen for the head details.

    Will Sharpie work? Yes.

    Is it advisable? No.

    Sharpies are permanent markers... on paper. On plastic they can fade and rub off.

    Never use Sharpie. I learned that mistake from trying to paint my DOTM voyager Ironhide. I only got one leg complete and found out the marker eventually starts to fade away. This was a few months ago and, looking at the figure now, it's barely noticeable because of how much it's faded.

    I'm fine with the silver personally.

    I'm trying to only use Sharpies for small details now anyway.

    You can buy paint markers. Use those. Sharpies will change color over time as the alcohol evaporates
