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

Step 2: Use a Graphite Pencil on the Back of the Image

Step 3: Have an Object You Want to Transfer the Image To

This is a cup I purchased at the dollar store.

Step 4: Tape Image to the Surface

Step 5: Use a Pencil or Pen to Trace Over Your Entire Image

Step 6: Pull Off the Tape and Volia!

Now you can transfer an image to any surface!

Step 7: Here's What I Used the Image On:

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!
