Using a Light Box to Transfer Artwork


Learn how to use a light box to transfer your drawings, paintings, photos and artwork in this free instructional art video lesson.

Series Summary

Have you ever wanted to make multiple copies of one of your favorite works of art? Maybe you want to see how one of your drawings would look as a watercolor? A light box will allow you to try out different color schemes on various copies of a single design. A lightbox is an artist's tool which is used to transfer drawings, designs and patterns. The light box is topped with a translucent flat surface on which you can trace the lines and shapes of one drawing onto another. The lamp inside the box provides illumination which makes the lines of the original work of art more vivid and visible for making copies. Light boxes can also be used for viewing slides or artwork, tracing, stenciling and calligraphy, as well as designing stained glass, embossing and other scrapbooking crafts.

In this series of free instructional videos you'll learn how to use a lightbox. Artist Sue Gill Rose shows you how to transfer your drawings and designs, how to use a lightbox to sketch out painting designs, and how to use a light box for photo art projects.
