Marking on dark wood?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to mark out centerlines and such on rosewood (fretboard) and I cant seem to get a pencil line to show up. What do you guys use. I was thinking maybe a white colored pencil? Chalk is too thick. Sorry about the elementary question :D

Yeah I'm just wondering if it's one of those pencils where the lead is kind of waxy, and the rosewood is too oily so it doesn't actually mark the wood. It just glides over it. You need like a regular wooden #2 pencil with the silvery lead, the kind from elementary school. :D And naptha the rosewood for good measure first.
