I don't know what or where you have tried so far, so it's hard to
give you specifics. So overlook if I suggest something you have
already tried. Also, I don't know how much time you have until your
event. (i.e. time for mailing)

If you live in a state where tattoo's are legal, they should sell
supplies and thus have hectograph paper, pencil or weapon of your
choice. If not, online it. Henna Works posted several posts down.

Have you tried all local craft stores for the Aquarellable pencils?
Catherine or someone else could best help you here. I have never
tried another water color pencil so I don't know if they would work
as well. I found mine at a store geared for engineers.

There is the tracing paper and charcoal pencil method. Every craft
store sells those. It doesn't work well for large or intricate
patterns or on bendy parts of the body. It can at least give you a
start. But does a good job for everything else. I still use it ever
so often for getting lines straight.

Several posts down, Stencil Help by Howie, there are instructions on
how to make your own stencils.

This is all I know about transfers. Hope it helps or someone else
here has more or better advice. Good luck to you!!
