Start with a drawing. Transfer Marker October 22, 2014 Make a photocopy the size of the space you're transferring to. Flip and mirror your original. I'm going to transfer my drawing to a cut of soft balsa wood. Turn your photocopy face down onto your surface and apply the transfer marker to the back of the paper. The toner will release from the paper and adhere to to the wood with pressure. Completely cover the whole back of the paper with xylene transfer marker. Pull the paper away from your surface to reveal the toner from your photocopy in reverse. Voila!
