How do I transfer decorative painting patterns onto my project surface?

Place tracing paper over the pattern you wish to transfer. Neatly trace the main design lines with a pencil.
Position traced pattern on project, then slip a piece of transfer paper under tracing paper. Retrace the design. Hint: When retracing design lines, you can use a different color pencil or pen for your second tracing so that you can see if you have traced all the lines.
Remove tracing paper and transfer paper to reveal the transferred design.
