Use this tracing art technique and embark on a creative voyage. The fun comes when you color in your trace-marks, using imagination and wild designs.
You can trace any picture without tracing paper. Pick a picture from a magazine that you want to trace, and cut it out -- ask for permission first.
What You'll Need:
- Old magazines
- Blunt scissors
- Lightweight white paper
- Masking tape
- Black felt-tip pen
- Colored pencils or markers
