Step 22 of 28: Transfer papa's "kite" to your drawing paper

This part is like magic! Turn the "papa" paper over and put it atop your drawing paper. The soft, dark outline you made in step 21 is now rubbing against the drawing paper, right?

Now, trace that outline AGAIN by drawing over the outline on "papa". Press medium-hard. Some of the dark, soft pencil "stuff" (called "graphite" and "lead") on the underside of "papa" will transfer to the drawing paper.

When you're done, take away the "papa" paper and you should see a light copy of the kite-shaped image is now on the drawing paper, too.

Press and peel..
