Transfer Images Without Carbon Paper


Introduction: 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

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:

With the use of indigo is not it better? It is for such things done.

Any Tips on making the transfer lines in color?Crayon,colored pencil,chalk etc?

Cool Instructable.

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!
