marking out..tile face

If snapping glazed tiles.ohp pens permanent, rub the mark off the tile if it is still visible after the cut....If the tile is satin face...pencil..(2 tiny marks top and bottom of tile)....Gaz

i ran out of marker pens on a job, but i bought a tipex pen from sweet shop and it worked great never lost the line in the wet cutter. Easy to buy when your miles away from a tile shop

I always just use a pencil, even on dark tiles. Can always see it even if you use a wet cutter because it gives off that shine (providing you keep your water clean)
