Mix some lamp-black with sweet oil. With a piece of flannel cover sheets of writing-paper with the mixture; dab the paper dry with a bit of fine linen. When using put the black side on another sheet of paper, and fasten the corners together with small pine. Lay on the back of the black paper the pattern to be drawn, and go over it with the point of a steel drawing pencil; the black will then leave the impression of the pattern on the under sheet, on which you may draw it with ink.
Patterns On Cloth Or Muslin are drawn with a pen dipped in stone blue, a bit of sugar, and a little water: wet to the consistence wanted.
