Does anyone paint their strings?


The place where I bought my harp told me I could use a marker to darken the red and blue or black strings as they have faded somewhat. Does anyone do this, and if so, what type of marker do you use?


It might be worth replacing the strings with new ones if they’ve faded enough that it’s hard to see. I have a feeling that any marker you use is just going to rub off on your fingers as you play!
