Whiteboard marker vanishes on masonite Answered

heya I wanted to setup a cheap whiteboard in my room. So I went down to my local hardware store and found some whiteboard-like wood... this was called masonite, though it has a nice glossy white finish like a whiteboard does. However when I write on it with a whiteboard marker, the ink vanishes. It writes on perfectly and then immediately starts vanishing away. Any ideas on how to fix this or do I need to find something else? cheers

. Just a guess, but your markers are probably water-based and the ink is beading up on the non-porous Masonite. Try different markers.
