Ok, take the picture and flip it over. now draw over the back of the picture heavily. you may want to hold it up to a light and see how much more you need to shade. you only need to shade over the parts that you want transferred.

I made a kind of carbon paper in a Commercial Art class some thirty years ago by rubbing Conte crayon on a sheet of paper, then smearing it around with Bestine solvent. It made a passable carbon paper.

This would be DIY "Carbon Paper", seems to work OK. As a suggestion, if you can split the pencil in half lengthwise so you have the "lead" embedded in half the wood, you could sweep large areas of paper quickly. And use a soft pencil. L
