It would be tricky.  The stuff only really tracks changes between a field
pointed at the paper, and a field paralell to it.  YOu can see this in a
photo from my site...


The magnets are set up in an alternating north-south pattern, but you can
see that the squares all look the same as the paper does not show the
difference between north and south magnetic fields.

I think the biggest difficulty would be generating an intense, but very
localized field, or else you erase the pattern you had drawn as you move
down to draw the next line.

But it's cool stuff!
