So I was at an Abney Park concert and got the entire band (and their infinite amazingness) to sign my cane. It's a polished (or stained) body with a brass cobra head on top, all the signatures are on the wooden part. What's the best method for making sure the sharpie never comes off, even if I keep carrying it around. I was thinking of coating it in a thin layer of resin, would that work?

Spraying it with lacquer ought to work!  They make some especially for stained wood.

The band is super nice, they'll sign basically anything and if you stay after the show (or are 5 hours early like I was) you can hang out with them a bit. Captain Robert is hilarious by the way. They're on tour, check to see if they're going to be near you, the tickets aren't that expensive (mine was only $15 and the show was almost 4 hours long).
