• Preparing Carbon Paper

    Instead of a pencil, use a graphite stick to cover one entire side of the paper. Graphite sticks (or carbon sticks) are available at most art and craft stores in the drawing section; look for cubed-shaped ones that lets you draw with the full length of the stick, for easy coverage.

    5. Step 5: Use a Pencil or Pen to Trace Over Your Entire Image.
    6. Step 6: Pull Off the Tape and Volia!

    Furthermore, can you use parchment paper instead of tracing paper? Yes, you can. Parchment paper or baking paper also works like tracing paper. If you make a mistake using pen on tracing paper, you have to start over.

    Keeping this in view, is transfer paper the same as carbon paper?

    Well, transfer paper (also known as graphite paper) works in exactly the same way, only using graphite instead of carbon. Transfer paper that is designed specifically for artists is a lot cleaner than carbon paper. Transfer paper is greaseless, leaving behind less residue, and is easy to erase.

    Why is it called parchment paper?

    Baking paper – also known as bakery paper or parchment paper, as it is often called especially in the US – is grease proof paper that is used in baking and cooking as it provides a heat-resistant, non-stick surface to bake on. Both sides of SAGA paper are identical, so both sides can be placed “up” when using it.
