Title: How to make your own graphite transfer paper
Post by: Bellarina on November 27, 2014, 11:39:22 AM
I was inspired by Val to look for a solution
To her trying to erase lines made with graphite transfer paper.
While researching I found this YouTube video.
Didn't know if this has already been discussed on here before.

Interesting Robin. It's just that I seem to be doing a lot more drawing of late and was looking for a quicker way to transfer. Think I may have a go at this. Seems simple enough....  >:D    :eek:     :2funny:

I made my transfer paper the other day and used it to transfer the kudu.  It worked very well.

Since it was larger than a sheet protector to put it in to protect it, I taped a piece of waxed paper over the penciled side.  I just lift that sheet away to use the transfer.

Thanks, Robin, for posting that information.  What a convenience to not have to pencil the back of a picture every time I want to transfer a picture.

I haven't tried to make it, but since you had such luck, I will definitely give it a go.

VJ,

Welcome to Paintbasket.  You won't be disappointed.  Great instruction from Nolan and Dennis.  Plenty of knowledgeable and friendly advice from the members.

As for that graphite transfer paper, it's such a convenience to use.  I have used the one I made nearly a year ago at least 12+ times.  I keep it rolled up in a paper towel tube until I need it.

Love it.

Welcome, Margo.  Take the time to introduce yourself in the ABOUT ME section of the FORUM.  We'd like to get to know you and welcome you properly.

Yes, that graphite sheet for tracing is fabulous.  I use it over and over.   I may make a couple more in small sizes (4 x 6 and 5 x 7) so that I do not wear out the bigger 8 x 11.

aloha
