outlet marking for paneling

I am installing a traditional raised panel system around my entire interior and I have quite a few outlets to cut around, I have searched for some type of product to mark my outlet so that Ican press the panel against as a guide for cutting and cant seem to find anything. Is there such a product out there, like a removable marker color that will stay wet as I press the panel against the outlet?

thanks

my 2 cents

Hi
when i had that problem is what i used and work fine.
Get a outlet box to used as patern
1. take 2 drywall screws and screw one in each hole of the outlet box.
2. cut the screw part off and file them sharp
you can do that before inserting the screws in the hole
3. aling your panel and them simply press on them and there you will have 2 pin mark behind and all you need is to place your outlet box on the mark and trace out the patern of the box.

Don't laugh. Lipstick. Run a bead around the box, slap the panelling up, pull it away and cut it.

You can use chalk as well.

Yeah, but using chalk doesn't get under your wife's skin like using some of her lipstick!!
