How to use tracing and transfer paper – Lachri

Ever wonder how I keep my line drawings on my acrylic (and sometimes even my oil) paintings so clean? Today I’m showing you tips and techniques on how to use tracing and transfer paper to draw your image onto another piece of paper and cleanly apply that image to your canvas!

You can use any tracing paper, I’m using the generic one from Hobby Lobby in this video.

I like the white transfer paper from Loew Cornell the best but I do occasionally use the grey or black one (amazon affiliate link)
