|a: Place a thin|
piece of paper over the image and trace (i.e.
copy by following lines seen through the sheet of paper)
b: Place a
c: Retrace the image using a hard pencil or
d: Remove tracing and carbon paper
a: Another method
is to trace the image as above.
b: Then turn this
tracing over and, using a very soft lead pencil,
scribble over the traced line ensuring it is
c: Turn the sheet back again and
place onto the surface onto which you wish to
transfer the image.
d: Now retrace the outline
using a hard pencil or ballpoint pen.
presto! This works better on paper than harder
a: Trace as above then
divide the image into grids i.e. vertical and
horizontal lines equal distance apart.
another grid using the same number, but larger squares
(horizontally and vertically) onto the new
As an example, if the original image was
10 cms x 6 cms you could draw a line at one
centimetre increments making a grid of 10 x 6
(60 1cm squares in all). If you wish to enlarge
this design to 100 cms x 60 cms you still draw a
grid of 60 squares but this time each square
would now measure 10cms instead of 1 cm.
c: You look at the
original image to see the contents of each
individual square and replicate this into each
individual square on the new grid.
