Welcome to dickblick
Developed by a sculptor and painter for professional and amateur artists, Bernini Pencil-Line Transfer Spray creates a carbon-like surface on the back of drawings, prints, or photographs for ease of tracing onto a variety of surfaces.
The spray works with most papers, and it transfers well to canvas, walls, primed wood, cloth, and other surfaces. Since results vary (some paper may be too thin or too absorbent), a test on a sample surface should be conducted before use.
When spraying the back of the image is not practical, create your own carbon-like paper by applying the transfer spray to vellum paper or tracing paper.
Pencil-Line Transfer Spray is great for hobbyists, sign painters, stained glass artists, and for urban art such as large murals.
The spray is formulated to dry quickly for instant use.

Comments about Bernini Pencil-Line Transfer Spray:
I am delighted to have discovered this product. You can spray it on the back of your drawing or your photo printed on regular paper, and it acts like carbon paper - just tape your image to your paper or canvas (I tried it on watercolor paper - I have not used it on canvas myself), then trace the main shapes and details with a reasonably sharp pencil. Your image shows up on your paper or canvas. It is slightly water soluble so if you scrub a lot, the line may disappear, but under normal use it stays in place while you paint. It does not bleed when you paint. It makes the process of transferring your drawing easier than trying to color on the back with pencil. It is not waxy and you can paint right over it, although it will show through light colors. I did note that it does not easily erased once you have painted over it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So easy to use. Makes a nice tracing line onto watercolor paper. Just need to be careful during spray application due to overspray. I just put it in a box and spray. takes just a few minutes to dry and you are ready to go. Love it.

Pencil-Line Transfer by a Spray
from midwest Florida
Spraying is easy without excessive overspray. Drying is quick, allowing you to continue with your work promptly. Tracing requires only moderate pressure leaving minimal marks on your original. Copy your original on your printer and spray onto the back of that sheet; similarly, have your image printed to the size you want at a local office/stationery shop and then do the spray/transfer process. Clean up is easy

Good Alternative to Carbon Paper
By Gina's Drawings
from Indian Trail, NC
This aerosol spray coats well, leaving a light gray graphite-like coat that EASILY transfers to every drawing surface that I have tried (Bristol board - both smooth and vellum, mat board, Canson Mi-Teintes paper, Strathmore papers, and Stonehenge papers).I have, to this point, only coated the back of standard photocopy/ink jet paper. This is a very thin paper to begin with, so I have had "bleed through" from this product to the front image. It didn't hinder my work, but it did teach me to have a lighter touch with the spray. It goes on wet and dries to a light graphite color, which may mislead you to thinking you need heavier or multiple coats. This is not true! :-) I have since learned that 1 or 2 light coats works very well as a transfer medium, and I no longer have the spray bleeding through to the image surface.As for the transfer process - it produces a light gray line on your drawing surface. Keep this in mind when dealing with tinted papers. I suspect that it would be hard to see the tracing on darker or gray surfaces. I had a very "slight" problem with erasing the line created on a white surface, but honestly, once I started working on my project, those lines were covered and no longer visible. I would suggest you only transfer lines that are SURE to be covered in your project.This saves me time, eliminates extras steps in my process, and has become a permanent addition to my arsenal.

Not Size limited. Light Grey Image. Fast
from Cayucos, CA
Works like a light grey spray on carbon paper but does not leave a waxy residue and not size limited - very good. Does not easily erase - not so good? Try a small area before before spraying the entire image as it may bleed through. If it does bleed, spray a velum and use it like a carbon paper.
