I recently went to a concert here and got an autograph (with a sharpie) on a piece of glass. I was wondering what would the best way to seal it be?

Thanks in advance!

Cool! Hmmm... I'm not really sure.

Maybe our friends on the glass boards would have an idea or two. I'll try moving this thread there Smiley.

The best thing I can think of is a couple of layers of rubber cement.

Thanks for moving it! I thought about putting it here but then I second guessed myself lol.

I hadn't thought of Rubber Cement. I don't think I could do that and have it look nice lol. The piece is a display piece so I want it to look nice.

I'm thinking about clear nail polish? Though I was wondering if there was something better. I also have no idea how long nail polish would last or if it would come off and possibly pull the marker off?

Definitely test on another piece of glass before you do anything.

Any kind of glass sealant that you could find in Lowe's or Home Depot would work. As long as you are not planning on using the glass, it should stay in tact without. Perhaps you could mount it in a shadow box to keep it safe.

Is it something flat, that you could put another piece of glass over? 

Glass is the one thing I've found Sharpie to not adhere well to, so I'd be inclined to try to actually cover it with something.  What I covered it with would depend on the item, though.
