Got Bassmasters to autograph my Rod!

Recommended Posts

Jacob Wheeler, Mike Iaconelli, and Adrian Avena signed my rod today. I need help tho, how can I seal them onto my pole. Clear nail polish didn't work, began smearing so I quickly stopped. Any ideas!?

You could try a clear coat spray paint, clear epoxy resin, or something along that line.  I would use something to test each before acctually using it on the rod.  That way you know which one will not cause the ink to run and ruin the signatures.

CA glue might be good.  It dries quick and clear.   If your going to use the rod than you may want to get some flexible CA glue.

Once you figure it out, hang up the rod and don't
use it anymore!

When I was about 9 years old I got Bob Feller to 
autograph a baseball for me. When I was 12, my
friends and I needed a baseball to play with. The
only one I could find was the Bob Feller one on 
my dresser.

Needless to say, His autograph didn't last long.

If you soak a q-tip and quickly and carefully dab it on you will avoid some mess.  The trick it to not wipe it and not try to cover it all at once.  It dries so fast it will smoke.  Try to keep the smoke out of your eyes and nose because it's like a onion on steroids.  This also means you will use several q-tips to cover the signature.  Keep the q-tip wet and work quick and careful.  Maybe practice on something else a few times to get the feel for it.

 

i use this stuff to cover my signature on wood turnings.  I have used it on no pours surfaces like corian with success.  This stuff is on the brittle side so if your planning to use the rod you may want to consider something else.  There are flexible CA glues out there but I have not used them.

If your not going to use the rod maybe covering them to preserve isn't the best coarse of action anyway.  I would build a box with a glass top and hang it on the wall.

So I ended up buying a spray sealant that is also water proof. I've put a good number of coats on it and it did not run or smudge. 

@Darren. I'm gonna try not to use it for baseball haha

thread wrap finish.  I got Gary Loomis to sign my NFC back in 2012 and I applied a coat of finish over it to protect it.
