Some say the air solible pens are the best, unless you live in an especially humid area or gets lots of rain. Then the marks can disappear very quickly; even while you're working. Some people still prefer chalk pencils. ANSWER: The answer depends on the project and the fabric. Will you be finishing the project quickly or will it be finished over a period of time? "Air Soluble" means they will disappear without any help from any other agent besides air. Air is everywhere so, in a very short time, the marks will vanish. Also, please read the brochure before using the marker because some of the marks might become permanent if ironed. The water soluble markers are nice to use because they do hang around for extended periods but, again, read the directions before using them. With any sewing aid, do a test on scarp fabric before use.

Why does a plastic pen float?

The pen weighs less than its equivalent volume of water weighs.Putting the pen underwater shoves an amount of water out of the way equal to the amount of space the pen takes up. This is called displacement. For the pen, the displaced water weighs more than the pen, so it can force the pen up and out of the water instead of the pen forcing more water out of the way and sinking to the bottom.Eventually, when most of the pen is out of the water, the small volume of the pen that is still beneath the surface displaces an amount of water whose weight equals the total weight of the pen. It then floats at this equilibrium depth, with the pen being pulled down with a force equal to the displaced water's weight pushing up.
