My local club has aquired a new inexpensive 10 seater blue felt top poker table and we would liked to draw a inner white "racetrack line" around the table.

What is the best way to do it? Felt pen, Dye? or should I call specialist? I tried looking in google without success.:thinking:

My local club has aquired a new inexpensive 10 seater blue felt top poker table and we would liked to draw a inner white "racetrack line" around the table.

Any chance of using masking tape (round the track line) and to form a stencil (covering over the rest of the table with paper) and either spray paint or a brush and paint?
Failing that - could you mark the line with 1/4" white electrical tape?
It is unlikely that you will be able to get a marker to write white onto blue fabric though.

Quite difficult to get the curve right! but could form into rectangular with rounded corners:roll:
Stencilling seems a good idea and I'm sure there is a fabric spray paint for that!:whistling:
Laying a white electrical white tape as marker is a very bad idea!!!:thinking: because the cards will not able to glide across the table:w00t:

Plate...erm I could borrow a massive one from Buckingham Palace:giggle:
eeek! no pins I'm afraid - will damage the cloth.:thinking:
Tippex - nice idea but not safe due to lumpy and eventually flaky:w00t:

Humm - had another thought...you can buy iron on vilene (fabric stiffener) in different thicknesses. It is made up of compressed bonded fibres meaning that you can ease it out. Could you cut strips of the lightweight type and ease is round curves and iron it to the felt (no steam and use a pressing cloth). Mark out the line required with tailors chalk following the method advised by karmakaren (a small drawing pin hole should not mark the fabric permanently) ? Just a thought...

Dress-makers chalk on a piece of thread for the radius, no mess, no dust, no smudging.... simple :thumbsup: Did it all the time on indoor bowling mats :-D
#7
what do those people use to wrtie on the pub menu boards? thats a white pen of some sort...anyone know?
#8
Not ideal fabrics sticking on table:oops:
Dressmaker chalk.... will check out/ask in fabric shop;-)
White writing in pubs/cafes/windows are known as glass pens, a bit like white board pens:thumbsup:

oloy prob. with tailors chalk is that is only temporary (use the stuff every day at work)
Had another thought though - fabric paint. comes in a variety of colours and finishes - for the purpose you require, make sure you don't have one with gloss finish (it will be a bit too grippy) or the puffy kind (it will provide a raised finish)
This product should suffice http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Dylon-Fabric-Paint-White_W0QQitemZ270137452390QQihZ017QQcategoryZ11785QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

You should be able to get it from a good haberdashery shop
