What can I use to sign a painting?

The best thing to use to sign your artwork is whatever medium you used in your piece. For example, an acrylic painting can be signed with some thinned acrylic paint and a script liner brush. For a graphite drawing, use a graphite pencil. It is not always possible or desirable to use the same medium.

How do you sign a drawing?

Sign in a bottom corner of your painting if you want a traditional signature. You can sign in the left or right bottom corner, although signing in the right bottom corner is more common. If you do sign in the bottom corner, place your signature 1–2 inches (2.5–5.1 cm) from the edge of your painting.

Can you sign a painting with a Sharpie?

Some of my friends use marker pens to do the job. If you choose to do this, you’ll have to find a solvent-based pen (Sharpie brand markers, made by Sanford, will do the trick) that sticks to the oil paint, and that has some claim of light durability. Otherwise, you could find the signature smearing or fading over time.
