    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)

    We use pretty much the same things herr in the states as you folks do over there.

    I use pencil mostly & use the pencil/score trick as mentioned as well but the best thing I use for wet cuts on dark tile & most stone is a "White-Out pen" as found in office supply houses for covering up mistakes on paper? . Not sure what they may be called in the UK but Presto Ball point makes a version & I believe Bic too?

    I use ceramic markers from non other than Topps Tiles, they mark all types of tiles and don't come off in the wet cutter.
