Tracedown wax free tracing down paper is ideal for artists, designers, illustrators, crafts, fabric painting, dress making, ceramics, signwriting, tattooing and kids.

How to use this product:

3 easy steps to the perfect transfer:
1.  Place the sheet of tracedown on top of the item that you would like to transfer the image to
2.  Place your design, photo or image on top of the tracedown paper then draw on and around any parts of your design that you wish to transfer
3.  Remove your design and the sheet of tracedown.  You are now left with your unique design and are ready to paint, ink or colour.
 
DIRECTIONS
Use Tracedown like carbon paper to transfer trace a design or sketch onto another surface: any kind of paper, wood, acetate, metal, cloth, anything! One colour may be better for a specific job than another, and since the weight of the coatings have purposely been varied, adjust your pressure in tracing to get the desired result. All the colours make a fine crisp line.
 
You can use Tracedown for transferring designs onto cloth: and also for dressmaking. Use a standard tracing wheel to trace the pattern. 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.
 
For ceramics and copper enamelling, trace designs on pottery with Tracedown and the lines disappear completely in the firing, whether the piece is green bisque fired or glazed.

Fantastic product

For white or coloured backgrounds, the Paperweave coloured tracing papers produce lines that are as crisp & clear as the point of the pencil used (in my case a 4H). They are erasable although, as with any coloured pencil, the erasability depends on the pressure used when applying the tracing outline. The correct pressure will give the solid outline required as well as provide an easily-erased line (to invisible) if required. I used the Derwent battery-operated eraser to test this with. Very happy with this product and will definitely purchase again, many thanks!

A3 Tracedown Paper

Works very well. I prefer the yellow because it gives a clear line on both white and coloured supports without looking too obvious. It is also easy to erase if necessary. Each sheet can be used several times and this is the cheapest price I've found.
