Safe and sensitive to wear, the transfer paper creates a barrier between the design and your skin so that it only lasts as long as you want it to. Trial a design for a permanent tattoo, create a special look for a night out, design unique wedding favours or incentivize your children to tidy their rooms with a reward scheme - the sky's the limit!Comprehensive practical information explains how to draw your patterns or adapt found designs, and how to print and apply your creation.
