Many varieties of tracing paper can be used for overlays, sketching, and drawing with pens, pencils, or markers. They’re often used by students and beginning artists. Because it is translucent, tracing paper is ideal for young artists who want to create an outline for coloring or marker art, or create a perfect copy of their favorite superhero or cartoon character.
Higher-end tracing papers are preferred by architects, designers, and engineers, and can be purchased in a tracing paper roll, sheet, or pad. Choose vellum for drafting, tracing, and drawing. These papers can also be used for making cards, collages, and papercrafts.
