Hi Arlene!
Leslie Ceramics, in Berkeley, CA ((510) 524-7363) lists a fine underglaze pen
in their catalog. I have not used this tool myself, but other ceramicists I
know have used Leslie's UG pen with good results.

One word of caution, when using an underglaze pen: the "point" often clogs up,
even when applying on a fairly dry surface. Keep water nearby, and a stiff
wire "unclogger," to keep the UG flowing freely.

Best to you!
