Custom Paintjob Question

I'm not trying to change the entire paintjob on my racquets-- I just want to add some touches on areas that are kind of ugly and too flashy. So spray paint is out of the option.

I'm very interested in felt-tip pens. I know Torres used them for his Juice Pro, and I'm looking to do the same. So does anyone know if there are specific felt-tip pens required, or will the Papermate Flair pens work (about $10 for 12 pens).

Coincidentally, I'd like to do this for my Juice Pro as well (copycat, I know). So if anyone is familiar with paintjob touch-ups or felt-tip pens, I'd really appreciate your help!

As long as they don't rub off they should be good. Maybe you can ever so slightly roughen the paint so the ink sticks better.

I went to an auto parts store and picked up a duplicolor 2in1 scratch fix. I got a 2013 blade thru a trade that looked like it was just strung and then dropped and there were a few chips and a couple scratches. The 2in1 has a brush but also has a rollerball option. It worked great to hide the damage. I could've used bondo (sp?) but just did a few layers every day. Paint match on the glossy black was decent..not perfect by any means. But if you're redoing the colors should work great. I think touch up paint would be better than markers or pens right? Oh yeah price was $8 for a 1/2 fl oz bottle I think.
