I use this all the time with my students. It’s like carbon paper but Graphite. When you get a cool drawing that you want to be on nice watercolor paper, you just place the transfer paper underneath your drawing to make a copy.
Example: Sometimes students draw too small. If it’s a lovely drawing, I just enlarge it on my copier, then the student can transfer it to nice paper. This allows a nice design more size appropriate (larger) for painting…..
They are re-usable ! They last for a super long time over and over!
