    What is a tracing sheet in the US? Is it like tissue paper or stronger? Tissue paper fades quickly - at least the stuff here.

    Also, is the point of the magnets just to attach it to the locker in the photo? They aren't needed to make the clock run are they? You could use a stick on photo hanger depending on the weight or am I off base?

    A Tracing sheet is a tracing sheet pretty much anywhere.
    As for the magnet it is just to denote the 12 on the clock and to hang it.

    He didn't ask for permission but he notified the website that he used their pics.

    This would be neat of the front and the back were different colors!
