crayon in engraved name keeps coming out

Post by Guppyfan » August 10th, 2015, 9:53 pm

My pro shop guy uses a roofer's crayone to fill in the name on my ball ...just got a new ball and everytime i bowl a few games i lose color in a letter.
What can I use to keep the color in there?

I've always used a white Tire crayon To fill in engravings it always seemed to stay in good.

You might try putting a thin coat of clear nail polish over it, let it dry and then sand it smooth.

Go to a hobby shop and get a paint stick. It won't last forever, but a lot longer than a crayon. -- JohnP

Fill the engraving with color and paint clear nail polish over it. It will stay!
