My Four Step Process for Transferring My Images to a Surface Using Carbon Paper

My second process for transferring my image to a surface involves carbon paper.  Finding the carbon paper took me some doing but I found some.

1. As before I do a full scale drawing related to the final image.

2.  I place the carbon paper onto the illustration board surface and place the drawing over the carbon paper.

3.  Trace over the drawing.

4.  Add fixative to cover the carbon tracing to stop it from bleeding into the oil pastel.

And now I am ready to paint with my oil pastels.

Certainly the carbon process cuts out a step over the other charcoal method.
