I've had a local artist show us
his pictures of Islamic designs and architecture from
Morrocco. They've made intricate
designs with rulers and compasses, and are coloring them in
with crayons, markers, and
colored pencils. Next I wanted to use up a box of 6"square
ceramic tiles that were
donated. I'm want to transfer the designs to the tiles,
then glaze and fire them.

> Compass points won't work on the tile. Any
suggestions for transferring the designs?
Use carbon paper or cover the back of the design with
charcoal and them trace.
