Opaque Projectors Aren't Just for Classrooms Anymore

Opaque projectors, you commonly see something similar to them in classrooms inside of schools. Teachers use them to make a small object appear larger on a screen so that students can see it also. Did you know that opaque projector's are also a great tool for artists? An artist may take a picture of something he wants to paint on a wall and place it on the projector. He then lines up the projector to the spot on the wall and there is the picture he wishes to use…in large form on the wall. It is a quick and easy way for an artist to draw a small picture onto a larger surface.
