Looking For Transfer Rub Paper

I am trying to find (or figure out how to make) the transfer paper that we used as kids to rub on a face shape, then choose hair, eyes, ears, nose and mouth to complete the picture.

I know it was a waxy type of paper and we could also rub the colored sunday comics and transfer them to another piece of paper.

I know there are tracing books for kids that allow them to complete faces, but I really want to find that waxy transfer paper that we used as kids in the 40s and 50s.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We found out by creative accident that hand lotion applied to marker drawings makes an excellent transfer medium for walls....we were using the lotion to hold artwork made from notebook paper onto the wall, and the handprint went through. I went through the house, and found accidental crayon marks and lines and put handprint flowers on the tops of them to disquise them as art! There are little hands flowers all over the house! I am thinking of putting the name of the child and the date of the art and ptting some kind of shellac or clear varnish to save the artwork! It is kind of like an art diary!

Could you please elaborate? Do you place the picture against the wall and then rub lotion on the back? And then how difficult is it to remove when you need to? Thanks, Barbara

Ordinary wax paper can be drawn upon with non water based pens or markers, and the image rubbed upon paper in reverse using a blunt object like the edge of a penny, using a heavy piece of paper over it to avoid tearing it. To create a more durable (though not see-through) medium, rub a block of paraffin wax over a heavy piece of printer paper. Or try the glossy side of freezer paper, or (with care) aluminum foil.
