Something as small as a bowtie, you could use Duplicolor on with ease.

duplicolor will last on it

I did mine black... i ordered the vinyl by the foot off ebay real cheap, its way easy just heat with blow dryer and stretch over and work slowly to take out all bubbles...

I can't believe you can't put a vinal stick over your bowtie without fucking up..sweet idea btw. Just start at one end and work it across slowly making sure you dont let it get bubbled.

Filler primer... sand with 2000 grit... spray 2 coats duplicolor and some clear. Allow plaenty of drying time inbetween.
