Tips for using Water Soluble Pens

I use blue marking pens on my canvases quite often but they do have drawbacks. I've had blue pen lines never vanish at all and I've had them disappear overnight. It all depends on the weather and humidity, I think. Read the labels, too. Some pens are removed by water and set by heat, so you need to be careful in the heat of summer where you leave your stitching.   If it falls into the pool or gets baked by the sun while waiting for you in a hot car, you are not going to be happy.

DMC sells water soluble pens and has posted tips on getting the most out of their brand.  It's worth a read if you ever plan to use these.
