I've been using a silver ink pen to mark the lines. It's mentioned on this board and is made by Fischer. I practiced for a long time doing straight lines. I also at times keep a slight amount of hand pressure on the wheel to slow it up more.

An eraseable pen like you use on a dry erase board will not work. An eraseable gel pen I have not tried, but I think you may have problems with it on fabric, leather, vinyl, or Ultraleather. You can use chalk, a textile pencil, the Fisher silver ink pen, or put some 1" masking tape down and either follow the edges or draw a line on the tape and follow that.

The Fisher silver ink pen would be my choice also. It comes right off with Fantastik, Formula 409, or most any degreaser-type cleaner like Simple Green.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
