Wax or wax free products?

I read somewhere, not sure where to never use carbon tracing paper that is wax based or has wax in it for adhesion reason. Also with scratch and erase to always use wax free products.

Is this correct?

I have looked around and it seems I can't find "wax free" carbon transfer paper. I either find ones that say contains wax or says nothing at all...
 
a lot of people use ' Saral ' available from most airbrush supply places or online. Its a graphite paper.

When would you use a black "saral" vs a white one?

Is it if your painting on a black back round vs white? I know it's a dumb question.
 
So dark paper on a light back round?
Will it leave black lines and the white version leaves white lines on a black backround?
 
saral do several colours, just pick one that is lighter/darker than the surface its going on. a light touch is all that's needed, it erases well too being graphite

On any project, make the lightest transfer line you can see so it will be easy to erase or remove if you decide to change the transfer line.

why not get a sample, (not available outside of US from what I can see) http://www.saralpaper.com/sample.html

Thanks for that link I'm going to send the envelope out tomorrow. I wonder how long it takes to get.

I have regular transfer paper for now since all I'm doing is practice anyway but I wanted to know the wax thing for later on work and purchases.
 
it takes a while and a bit of trial and error to build up a toolbox of supplies. What I use / like may not suit you so if you can get samples all the better for the finances
 
Saral paper is great stuff, and you can reuse pieces several times so last a long time.

Use Seral transfer paper. It is chalk base and comes in a roll and many different colors.
