Answer for Painting over sharpie,,,,Lost cause?

You can remove the marker with Off Bug Spray. It will discolor the existing paint, but since you are repainting anyway, it shouldn't matter. Try this trick before you prime and paint. Good luck!

You will need to seal these marks with a stain blocking primer. Two very good products are Zinnser Cover Stain and standard Kilz. Both of these products are available in an aerosol spray can or gallon cans. You should use either the oil base or shellac versions not the water based.

It could take 2-3 coats of primer to completely seal the marks. But, once sealed you can paint as usual without any problems.
