Can you use paint pens to draw a design on a guitar, if you can, then can you also put on finish.
i was talking to a guy at a local gig once with a really cool pink strat with like a dragon pattern, he used paint pens and permanent market would you believe to create the finish, and then just clear coated it
You can normally use whatever you want to apply a finish to a guitar, as long as its clear coated properly afterwards. Some kinds of ink might smudge with certain clearcoats, but i'm not too sure about it. Those pens should work, though, just be sure to roughen the existing finish slightly to ensure you have a good surface to "write" on
