Not the most helpful carbon paper
on December 2, 2015
I was really excited about using carbon paper on my big project (an elegant renaissance-style dress as well as two muslin ren-style shirts/blouses). I used the blue on the muslin, and it worked pretty well. I was glad not to have to cut the paper pattern pieces. Sadly, it seems only the blue works that well. I tried other colors and they just didn't do as well.
Also, when I tried using it on the brocade (polyester), it barely showed up at all. It was particularly disappointing as that pattern had lots of markers to add. I used a mix of some of the blue carbon and marking pencils to try to get the marks I needed.
I can't really recommend these. I'm sure there must be something better. I hope.
