How shall I transfer my pattern?

A design pattern can easily be transferred using artist’s graphite paper.
Graphite Transfer Paper: Begin by securing the printed or hand drawn pattern onto the surface using a piece of stencil tape.  Slip the artists graphite paper under the paper pattern keeping the dark side of the graphite paper down to the surface.  Next, retrace over the design lines using either an artist’s stylus or a ball point pen.  TIP:  When tracing the pattern lines, it is always best to use light pressure.  Once the entire pattern has been transferred, remove both the pattern as well as the sheet of graphite paper.
