Transfer your patterns with acetate

Transfer your patterns with acetate

If you want to transfer a scrollsaw or chip-carving pattern onto a piece of wood, buy some clear acetate film. Available from office-supply stores, this film has a peel-off backing that allows you to adhere it to any workpiece. (Before you buy, check with a service technician or the company who makes your copy machine to ensure that the machine will accept clear acetate sheets.)

Now, to get your design onto the applique film, first draw or trace the pattern on a piece of paper. Then, place the paper pattern face-side down on the glass plate of the copy machine, load the applique film in the paper-supply bin, and photocopy the pattern onto the applique film. Now, you're ready to adhere the applique pattern to your project piece.

Why not just glue your paper pattern to the workpiece? For big stuff use a projector and trace the lines onto the work piece with a pencil...
