    Good question. I use white pencils to mark on dark fabric...I don't know of any color that shows up well on really dark colors.

      I use the frixion pens quite often on light fabrics. On dark fabrics I use slivers of bath soap that are to small to use for bathing.

        Depends. I just used my orange frixion pen on a dark green fabric. It was so-so. Couldn't see the light green pen on the dark green fabric at all. For really dark fabrics I use my white marking pencil.

          I use my white leaded pencil on black fabric. It works great!

              I use my white pencil, but the idea of soap slivers sounds good too - finally a good usd for those devils!

                    Where do you get these frixon pens? Do they sell them at Joann or Office Depot?

                      I love the white Bohin on the dark fabric (White Mechanical Pencil (.9mm) - Bohin) which can be erased or washed out and typically use the black Frixion on light colored fabric. Both are "must haves".

                        I saw a video with Sharon Schamber once where she explained about Frixion pens. Since she is just about the most gifted quilter I have ever sen in my life, I believe her! And now I can't find the video ANYWHERE!

                        I did take notes, however, when I watched it the first time, so this is what she said, in a nutshell:

                        Sharon Schamber's FMQ video, the first part Sharon explains the deal with the Frixion pens!

                        She said when you just heat to remove the marks with a dry iron, it leaves behind the gel in the ink, which is what reappears when cold. It is also the white lines you see on dark fabric.

                        HOWEVER, if you use STEAM to remove the marks, it dissolves the gel into the batting, and it does NOT reappear!

                        On dark fabric she uses a red pen, uses a dry heat iron to get the white lines to show on the fabric, then uses steam to remove them when she is done!

                          I use a white lead pencil, tailor's chalk or a Pounce pad to mark on dark fabric. The Pounce pad is especially good for transferring template designs onto a quilt.
