    I used the template from Satin Snow and it worked great. Just print out on regular paper, set your glass, matte side up, on the paper and, with straight edge and a sharp pencil, copy all or part of it on the glass. It washes off easily with soap and water.

    I used #2 pencil on the ground side of the glass. It has only been a couple of years, but it still looks, and works fine for me. The lines are very obvious but still translucent. I can use them or chose to look "through" them.

    I use pencil on the matte side of the glass for gridlines.

    China marker on the shiny side is handy for things like multiple exposures, or when shooting for a print layout, marking the space you need to leave for text or marking the aspect ratio for a specific print format.

    Nearly identical to the solution mentioned by jnanian, I have drawn my grids using the cornputer and then printed them with the laser printer using transparency film which is designed for use on copiers/laser printers. You can make any style of grid desired. If you clip each corner of the printed transparency grid, you can apply a small piece of tape there to hold it to the glass.

    I have used a needle sharp drafting pencil in a 4H or 5H. A #2 writing pencil will work but it must be very sharp. You can remove it with warm water and a soft cloth.
