We made a fun discovery today. Rubbing alcohol works to transfer drawings. It is a super simple technique, but kids think it is magical.
The kids drew pictures onto plain computer paper with water soluble markers. Then made a background for their drawing to be transferred to. For the background we used watercolor paper and watercolors, but regular paper works as well.
Tape your background image to your surface and place your drawing face down on top. Paint a small amount of the rubbing alcohol onto the backside of the drawing then gently rub with a spoon to encourage the image to transfer to the watercolor paper. Taping the paper will help the image not to wiggle and result in a crisper finished product.
Your transfer will be a mirror image of the original drawing, so be careful using words. You could paint with water instead of rubbing alcohol, although that would would result in a blurry, blended image.
The rubbing alcohol transfers are also a bit fuzzy around the edges, but I love how the prints turned out.
