Im trying to mark quilting lines on dark fabric. From what I see at the stores, my choices are to use a (1)chalk pencil, a (2)water soluble white marker, or a (3)chalk pounce.
I tried a Clover brand water soluble white marker...didn't work. Didn't even make faint lines to follow. Will return this.
I tried a white chalk pencil, and it makes OK lines, but I'm concerned that I'll have trouble removing the marks when I'm done. I tried brushing it off, and using water to remove it, but no luck. Hoping it will come out in the washing machine. Won't use it again unless I hear from others that it WILL come out. I've only marked a 5x5 area on my quilt so far...wishing I had tried it on a scrap first.
I've never uses a chalk pounce before, and am not too enthusiastic about this option. It sounds messy and innaccurate.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd prefer a water soluble pen if I could find one that actually works.
