    I'm using a green brillow pad and that's barely doing anything. It's scratching my iPod but not like it's suppose to. Could I use sandpaper?

    It takes patience if you want it to look good when you finish. With a brillo pad, it takes quite a bit of time. You could use sandpaper to speed the process up, but it'll render the Apple logo and info at the bottom unreadable (if these things don't matter to you, go ahead and use sandpaper). If you do decide to use sandpaper, be sure and finish with the brillo pad.

    Am I suppose I be able to see the design at any angle and any amount of light? Because I can only see my lines when it's tilted slightly under the light.

    As awal1190 said, it's going to take a while if you use a brillo pad. I would go with some high grit sandpaper (not too much, but enough that it will make a mark). Once it's "done" to your satisfaction it should be visible under any light.
