Wrong type carbon paper maybe?

Post by Leesh on Tue Jul 07, 2015 1:20 pm

Hi. I'm wanting to add some more advanced designs, that I know free hand I still make the occasional mistake on. These designs will be on my adult boards with the semi permanent pens. So I want to be able to make a carbon stencil to follow as well as reference the real picture. I have regular typing carbon paper, and have tried the speed stick/50% alchol method, but the carbon still hasn't transferred to my skin. Any ideas? The current designs I have I do free hand, but these are a bit more technical.

Tattooing Supply shops sell hectocarbon paper that transfers to skin. I have never used it, I just know about it.

There are pencils called tattoo pencils you can buy on Amazon and use tracing paper. I sometimes use it for henna designs.
