I have 2 different pounce pads - one white and one blue- for marking quilts for quilting. I also have several stencils. I have tried and tried to get the chalk to saturate the pounce pad enough so that it is easy to use the stencils...but I just can't seem to get it to work. It's really difficult to get the chalk to come out enough to make clear marks.
Any suggestions? I saw a video once that said to really smack it hard inside a bag, and then throw that bag away. I tried it, but can't seem to get enough chalk into the pad. I know I must not know enough to do it right...hopefully that's all the problem is!!
