Are you having trouble with image transfer when it comes to getting a logo to leather for a project? I get a lot of request to incorporate logos and images into my artwork and it’s important that I not use any artistic license to change the image at all. To keep from doing this and keeping the logo true to form, I just simply trace the image.
But how do you trace a photo if you don’t have a copy machine to resize the image and a light box in order to trace it for transfer?
Use The Tools You Have
If you have an iPad/iPhone it’s really simple.
Pull up the image and zoom in or out till the image is the size you want it.
Lay tracing paper over the screen and trace the image with a pencil. An iPad makes a really nice light box… Just be careful to not touch the screen with your fingers or the image will move.
Now you have the image traced in the size you need for your project. Transfer this to your leather and touch up any wobbly lines and you are ready to carve and tool.
I hope this helps but remember…. You still have to tool it! Thanks and if you found this helpful send me an email!
