Well, one of the lessons that are commonly introduced by kids is tracing. Things that they need is to copy or imitate some of drawings or writings. Well, usually, we can provide them the blank paper and the sample that they can do to imitate. However, the papers that we give to them is not so transparent. So, it will make it difficult to follow the drawings or writings. To solve this so-called "problems", we can use a tracing paper. Well, tracing paper has a main character that we can notice which is each sheet has a semi-transparent paper. It is made from the solution of wax. Well, just like the name, it is used to ease the hassle of tracing. Yes, we can easily see the picture or writing that we need to trace because of the characteristic of the tracing paper, see-through.
Before we know the usage of a tracing paper, we need to know the definition of a it first. Well, tracing paper can be defined as a paper that aims to help us tracing pictures or writings, and also help us to create a sketch of a design. It is intended to be produced in a low opacity. The level of the opacity of a tracing paper can make the light pass through. When it comes to the opacity, it is actually is a role if the raw materials and the process. So, some of them uses wax to create the see-through look. However, some manufacturers choose cellulose fiber from wood or cotton fiber to make it look transparent.
How do you trace tracing paper?
When it comes to using paper, we also need to know how to use tracing paper for creating an image, drawing, or sketch of a design. Well, it is actually very simple. Here are the steps to trace a drawing using them:
Well, we may be curious about how tracing paper works. Well, besides helping us to see the template or the drawing that we need to trace, we really want to know the paper for the other purposes. One of the things that across in our mind when it comes to testing our tracing paper is printing something on the paper. We need to know whether the result of printing works just like on a usual paper or not. So, to answer the curiosity, the answer is simple. No, we can't print on a tracing paper. It's because the this kind of paper is not designed to absorb the ink. So, when we still print on a tracing paper, the ink will only appear on the surface. It can be smudged. So, the shapes of the drawing can't sit well on it.
