I already have the materials at home. I'll be using a very thin, clear plastic film and "sharpie". Then one I have is a fine, felt tip, permanent black marker and perfect for the application. Sharpie the brand has a full assortment of sizes and colors. Certainly at some thickness I'd think the glass would render the lettering out of focus. -----Original Message----- From: pure-silver-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pure-silver-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Bogdan Karasek Sent: Wednesday, April 04, 2007 10:44 AM To: pure-silver@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pure-silver] Re: White lettering, black background Hi Mark, Won't the thickness of the glass cause the writing to be less than sharp, a bit diffuse? Question: we don't use the term *sharpie* in Quebec. I know it is some sort of felt pen but could you define/describe it for me. Is it is very pointy felt pen or what?
