Step Five: Create Carbon Paper

This is one of the easier ways that I have found to transfer a portrait image from a photograph to drawing paper. In this instance, I have used a LYRA graphite crayon (I use a 9B) to scribble an even coat of graphite on the back of the posterized image. The graphite needs to be more consistent, so I use tissue paper and rubbing alcohol to wipe it evenly.
