Use your laptop for a tracing backlight.

It is true, this is primarily a glass-screen tip. I specified my model.

Damage would only occur if you press really, really hard. We're talking a pencil here. I used B-hardness lead, which may affect the outcome. Don't press any harder than you would for normal writing—you're not doing an etching.

A window would have worked, but I was at a part of a library where there were no windows.

I'm also the guy that drew on the lid of my laptop with a pencil. ;)
