Step-by-step tutorial

Use a soft pencil (Mars Lumograph, 2B) to evenly shade the back of the template motif.

Download template

Tip: You can enlarge the template for paper sizes larger than A4. For larger motifs, you should only use the pigment liners with a line width of 1.0 or 1.2.

Place the template precisely (with the front facing up) on the drafting paper. Then trace the outlines and lines using a sharpened pencil (HB). This transfers the motif onto the paper. Before removing the template, check if all the lines have transferred.

Trace the outlines of the Ginkgo leaves with a pigment liner. Then trace all the inner lines with the pigment liner.

Finally, remove all pencil lines with the eraser.
