Picture of Transfer Images Without Carbon Paper

If you cannot find carbon paper or something similar to use to transfer images to almost any surface, you can take a regular sheet of paper and use it instead. Here's how:

Step 1: First Find/draw/print Off an Image

Thank you so much for your tip on transferring using pencil. I had a sign I was working on and could not fit the word I need on the top. I used your method and it came out great. Here is the sign and hopefuly I can show how it was used.

Great 'ible! How did you get the transfer to appear as a dark bold line that's in your first image?

That's actually the image after I've gone over it with a paint pen. Pencil is quite light but I believe if you use a darker graphite pencil (maybe a 8B) it could potentially transfer darker. I'll give this idea a test and get back to you when I do!
