I started this drawing!  Used yellow dress makers carbon,  started the graphite rubbing and all the yellow blurred into a grey-yellow mess.  So where did I go wrong? I was working on the backside (smooth side) of Bristol vellum.  Did I rub too hard?  Is it the paper I was using?  Or something amiss with the dressmakers carbon?

maybe they used a different substance to make your carbon paper. I would tone the paper first, then transfer the outlines using regular graphite instead

Sorry to hear you had a problem with the dressmaker's carbon Jill.  I used my very old paper from my S.A. days .... over 20 years old and transferred the drawing with no problem.  So I am thinking the fault must lie with your dressmaker's paper as Nolan suggested. Hope you are more successful second time around.    Patricia
