Tracing paper is a tool that just about every artist needs in their kit. We stock a range of tracing paper products, including tracing paper rolls and pads that will allow you to easily and clearly reproduce your work. With tracing paper from leading brands like Daler-Rowney and Goldline, you're sure to find the perfect product.
Our lightweight and transparent tracing paper and pads are perfect for creating precise copies of complex sketches, as well as designs for engineers and architects. Our Daler-Rowney Tracing Paper Pad comes in either A3 or A4 sizes, is acid free and strong enough to withstand repeated erasing. For larger projects, consider these sheets of A1 Tracing Paper from Gateway.
Tracing paper typically has low opacity and is semi-transparent, which means that light passes through it easily.
How to use tracing paper:
Tracing paper is very simple to use and is often used with a lightbox to allow for exact sketches. If you're wondering how to use tracing paper, follow these simple steps:
1. When tracing with a lightbox, the original image or sketch is placed atop the lightbox, and then the tracing paper on top of this. The light below the image makes it much easier to see and trace using the paper.
2. You can then trace the lines from the original image onto the tracing paper to duplicate it
3. You can place tracing paper directly over an original image and trace this way if you don't have access to a lightbox. Tracing paper can be used for any number of creative tasks, from professional sketches to crafts and artistic learning activities.
Graphite pencils are the best tools to use when working with tracing paper. You can shop our range of pencils for use with tracing paper and choose from great brands like Pentel, Faber-Castell and Staedtler.
