The last time I was there, I took some pictures of my friend's light table. I forgot to post them, and thought some of you might like to see it! The light table sits in the yarn section of her studio:
She loves the Latin flare and Toucans, so her studio is very colorful! I hope you can get the idea for the table and maybe build your own, if you have the room for it! (This is not meant to be a tutorial, just something to inspire your own creativity!)
The light tables covers the top of a normal wood table, which my friend has covered with a Mexican blanket to match her decor!
The table itself is handmade, just a frame that holds the glass top and some risers to hold it up.
Underneath the glass sit two florescent light fixtures.
Here is a top down view. You can see that she has a light above too. She keeps tape rolls under the glass for handy use in securing her paper--she reproduces her own rug hooking patterns for sale. Of course, those of you who use a light table for photos, you could get a frosted, less transparent glass top.
Hope this helps those of you who need a light table!!
The light table is great! I wish I had that much space! Did you follow the cute doggie down the stairs?
wow! here's another item on my studio wish list. lol
Ooooh, I love that! I don't do a ton of tracing day-to-day, but occasionally I need to draw a floor plan for a client and it's annoying to put it on what is essentially tissue paper.
Wow - look at all that yarn! And I love the purple Mexican blanket. I have to admit we had this wood sculpture thing of a parrot and a toucan. I recently banished it to storage, but then I bought him this parrot lamp to make up for it! It's a little silly, but life should be right, right?
Speaking of which, I hope you enjoy pet sitting!
That's an easy solution to be sure... I don't really need a light table now, but did when I was painting, and rigged up something similar with a glass topped table.
OK, floofy tail alert!! That pup is the cutest! I think you make suggestions for them to go out of town so you can spend time in that fabulous sewing room!! haha!
Have fun house and pet sitting :) I love her brightly decorated studio!
wow! very creative! and what a great studio!
