    OK I'm tracing some fine details and was just wondering is there such a thing as clear tracing paper,

    I have normal tracing paper that is ok but it's opaque, I have over projector film but will not hold pencil line.
    I also have a light box however this doesn't help with the deep shadows I need to trace. as with the tracing paper I have Mylar but again this is opaque and hard to see fine detail

    Hopeful for a solution

    why would you trace by hand if you got cutter? If I remember correctly, you have cameo or something.

    transparent mylar, transparent tracing paper, oramask 3 different types. one of them is transparent. Whatever material which is transparent, if you have issues with seeing what you wanna trace. IMHO. I use even regular fax paper...If you can see true fax paper, you have the cheapest mask available. Will not last very long, but for one project it will do. Clear transparent wax paper. clear wall pockets for folders, pockets for plastification. I am sure guys will have bunch of suggestions.
