The Pilot Frixion Erasable Gel Pen

I thought folks who like to draw their own designs and then have the lines disappear would like to hear what Helen has to say about Pilot's Frixion erasable pens.  Heat erases the lines and cold brings them back.  Helen mostly does Japanese Embroidery so she is using her pen on fabrics, not needlepoint canvas, so I cannot say whether they work well or not for needlepointers.

On the other hand, they seem to be readily available, come in many colors (even metallics), so the mad scientists among us might want to experiment.  Just let us know what you think, ok?

  1. I have been a fan of Frixion since I bought a pack of different types of pens (highlighter, gel pens...all in pink) very very cheaply at the Narita Airport in Tokyo. I use them for marking sewing symbols and notches onto my fabric when I sew. I haven't used Frixion on stitching fabrics though. I love how smoothly the ink flows.

  2. Thanks, Wendy. I never thought about using them to mark patterns on fabric. Great idea!
