Default Marking out panels

Just had some aluminium cut and some folded for a PSU chassis (very good job from a small firm 200 yards away for a mere tenner, they wheren't happy with their first go so I got two for the price).

Not wanting to scratch the front while marking out the switch etc. positions, what do I cover it in? The answer was emulsion paint (from a tester bottle bought by SHMBO). Once dry marked out with a fountain pen (no pressure required), drill holes and then soak overnight.

Job done.
