When I found out that Sharpie made oil based markers that could write on glass and metal, I had to go get some! I bought these magnetic scallop boards thinking I could make cute Christmas presents with them, but I wanted to give them a personal touch. In came the Sharpie paint markers. I added the white marker to the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Cameo to draw this design. Being I wanted a true single line font, I used Make the Cut with the Lettering Delights thin font called Swirl.
I used a speed of 1 and a thickness of 1 to draw the design. Keep in mind this metal board is double sided, and I did play with different speeds and thicknesses, this is what worked best and didn't smear. I also suggest you keep your design on the mat until it dries.
As you can see in the picture I used some painters tape to add this metal board to my mat in each corner. The board is stiff so I added something under the end hanging out of the machine to support the metal board. I do need to figure out some fun magnets for this board. If anyone has any ideas on where to get any strong ones, please let me know!
