I am literally at my whits end here looking for Rub On Transfers. I am doing a bunch of hand painted glasses that I want to duplicate. In order to make the process easier to paint I want to be able to possibly print my design onto a type of transfer paper that can transfer the lineart onto the glass. The only thing i've found is stuff made by Papillo and Grapfix, but they only sell 10 sheets for almost $20. Is there an alternative to transferring patterns onto glass? My last resort is to by yellow Saral Paper.

The only other thing I could think might work would be:
a: Try using regular old fashioned carbon paper. You could find this at office supply places.
b: Make your design with contact paper and transfer the design by drawing it with the paper stuck to each glass. This would be time consuming but most likely the cheapest.

Thank you I will look into it. It's hard to imagine that there isn't an easy solution available when there are so many crafts.
