Wax free Graphite Tracing Down Paper by Paperwave
Tracedown presents a simple and quick way to copy images, and can be used many times to transfer your image to paper.
The charcoal grey graphite tracedown is ideal for use with white paper while the white and yellow Trace down are perfect for dark paper projects.
Blue Tracedown is for non-photographic for keylines, mechanicals and paste-ups.
Red Tracedown is easy to use on mixed light and dark surfaces.
Place one sheet of wax free transfer paper between the image and your paper and simply trace over the outline. You'll be painting your picture in no time!
Available in A3 and A4, and comes in packs of either 1 or 5 sheets.
Tracedown can also be used for transferring designs onto cloth and also dressmaking. Use a standard tracing wheel to trace the pattern. It is safe for marking on all fabrics including synthetics such as polyester and bleached fibres. The tracing dots will not melt into the material when ironed and may easily be sponged off if desired. The tracing wheel does not cause Tracedown to crack apart and it outlasts many other dressmaker tracing papers many times over.

Saral ® Transfer
Paper Is Easy To Use - Here's How
|The following are hints to help you have the best success
when using Saral ® Transfer Paper.
1.) On any project, make the lightest transfer line you can see so it will be easy to erase or remove if you decide to change the transfer line.
2.) To help avoid smudging, wipe a new, unused sheet of Saral Transfer Paper lightly with a tissue to remove any excess coating or dust.
3.) When using Saral Transfer Paper, avoid smudging with the palm of your hand by placing the transfer paper on your surface and securing it with tape or with your fingertips (not the palm of your hand).
4.) To remove smudging, try a large eraser and lightly rub over the smudge. This will work most of the time. You can also remove a smudge with the rubbing alcohol found in your medicine cabinet (isopropyl) and a cotton swab. Be sure to test the alcohol on your project in a small, less important, section or corner first to make sure the alcohol won't ruin your surface or painted surface.
5.) On water Colour paper, make the lightest, thinnest transfer line possible that you can see. It will erase if you have not painted over it. However, be sure to erase very lightly and only on the transfer line to avoid breaking the small fibers in water Colour paper.
6.) On water Colour paper, be sure to use the lightest, thinnest transfer line so it won't show too much through water Colour paint transparent washes.
7.) Saral Transfer Paper transfer lines will wash out of fabrics. However, it will brush off of some fabrics (e.g. t-shirt cotton, depending on Colour)...try rubbing lightly with your hand.
