THE LAST STITCH-This swipe pad comes in a red container that measures 3x4.5. To fill the quick swipe, remove the plug from the top and carefully pour Miracle Chalk into the swipes' reservoir. The first time the Swipe is filled, firmly pat the Swipe into the palm of your hand to get the powder to flow evenly. It is easier to mark with a Swipe that is well saturated with powder. To mark your stencil, simply position the stencil where you want it and swipe the powder-filled Swipe over the top of the stencil.
