HOW TO TRACE AND ENLARGE DESIGNS
(Without the use of software)
If you want to transfer a design from a magazine, picture or book there are several ways this can be done.
a: Another method is to trace the image as above.
b: Then turn this tracing over and, using a very soft lead pencil, scribble over the traced line ensuring it is well covered.
c: Turn the sheet back again and place onto the surface onto which you wish to transfer the image.
d: Now retrace the outline using a hard pencil or ballpoint pen.
Hey presto! This works better on paper than harder surfaces.
TO ENLARGE PATTERNS
a: Trace as above then divide the image into grids i.e. vertical and horizontal lines equal distance apart.
b: Draw another grid using the same number, but larger squares (horizontally and vertically) onto the new surface.
As an example, if the original image was 10 cms x 6 cms you could draw a line at one centimetre increments making a grid of 10 x 6 (60 1cm squares in all). If you wish to enlarge this design to 100 cms x 60 cms you still draw a grid of 60 squares but this time each square would now measure 10cms instead of 1 cm.
c: You look at the original image to see the contents of each individual square and replicate this into each individual square on the new grid.
