About This Class

In this class you are going to learn how to create your own light table in few simple steps. You don't need to be very crafty to follow the class.

I have tried to find the cheapest materials to make it. Overall I spent $34. There are some materials that I had to bought even though I would normally have them at home. Since I am living abroad now I don't have them here. I borrowed a couple things from my neighbor though! : )

Check out the list of materials at the "Class project" sections to help you to find them.

Let me know if you have any questions at the "Community" section!

This is so easy to do!
This class was short but informative. I'm looking to create a lightbox myself for different illustration projects but the cost in stores and online can be pretty high, especially considering that I might enjoy the process as much. I will definitely try this method but on a larger scale for bigger illustration boards. Thanks for sharing!
