One of my favorite tools for transfering designs from paper to a wall is my projector. I have an old "opaque" projector that I use frequently when I need to get something quickly and perfectly onto a wall.
It is perfect for things like this, which I did last week (a rival Plano Wildcat Paw - with apologies to my Midlothian Panthers, but hey...gotta eat):
And yesterday, I worked on some stage props with a friend from church. We took 4x8 sheets of pink foam insulation ($9.00 each at Home Depot), painted them white and then added silhouettes. We transfered the patterns onto the panels using the trusty projector.
An overhead projector would work well for this kind of thing, too. When I need to make a highly detailed transfer, I borrow a fancy schmancy projector that hooks up to a computer.
Now that you know this little trick, maybe there is a project you've been wanting to do but were hesitant to try. I think of my projector as a tool, not a "cheat," just like a calculator helps you add numbers faster than a pencil and paper can. Try it!!
I hope ya'll have had a good week. As usual, it has gone by far too fast! Link up for Company Girl Coffee below - or feel free to chat away in the comment section.
PS NO SMALL THING TODAY! Enjoy your weekend!
