This is the first board I've ever shaped and glassed. I tried a foam stain but it came out horribly so I tried to sand it off the blank but the paint was still stained into the foam. I also have sharpie lines on the blank that wouldn't sand off. Being impatient, I laminated the board with the paint and sharpie marks still on the foam, as I was planning on spray painting the board. But after some reading, I heard that painting on the hotcoat won't give me a durable and long lasting color job. So now I don't know what to do. Currently, I'm leaning towards the idea of a very opague pigmented white hotcoat to cover everything up as it seems the opague white will last for a very long time.. What are your guy's opinions on the idea I'm thinking of and if you guys have any suggestions of your own, I will be more than happy to hear them!
