I wanted to mark the border on the wall hanging I'm contributing to our quilt show tombola draw. Its the green the pen is lying on. I didn't want anything to remain as this should be a great fund raiser for the show and something that doesn't look nice just won't cut it.
I did the markings and found out I had goofed.
I tried the Frixion pen I had and it worked too but I would need lots of lighting to see it while sewing. (I culd see it, but did need the extra lighting). I had to get the markings out and didn't have the packaging. Of course not, who saves that?
This is what Clover says on their website.
White Marking Pen Fine: White marker for easy to see markings on dark colored fabrics. The pen makes a great fine line on fabrics. Markings disappear upon ironing or spraying with water. As the ink dries on the fabric, white markings will become more visible.
I went to the ironing board and pressed with a dry iron first as I didn't know how the Frixion pen would react to water. Then I spritzed the lines. I pressed. They were still visible.
So I did it again but this time with spritzing and steam.
They are still a bit visible when you zoom in with a camera or stand on your head and look at it. I'll give it another spritz as I probably pressed too hard when marking. It takes time for the line to appear when you are marking and as I told you up top, patience is not one of my virtues.
I'm keeping this pen in my box. I will use it again. I'm quite happy with it.
