Future might work. Anything with a solvent will make the Sharpie ink re-activate.

I've used Krylon Crystal Clear to seal Sharpie with no running.

Isopropyl alcohol removes sharpie ink. Use generously. Lather, rinse, repeat. If marked on a flat painted surface, yer scrod.

Future can work, but if it builds up it will attack the sharpie. I have had no problems with Micron pens, though. But be careful and apply light coats. Polyscale flat works well, bit it's matte.

I have found thrugh trial and error that what works is KRYLON FIXATIVE SPRAY form Wal Mart. You have to spray light coats and top off with future.This stuff the artists use to seal different types of artwork.It costs $ 7.99 a can and will do several projects.Thanks.
