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.

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?
