I have been looking for an art projector for enlarging my seascape wave photos to paint on canvas , saw one called Artograph but its not available any where. A new version is very expenvive over 1000.00 to much for this gal. I am wondering if one of the many mini movie projectors that are available would work ? My canvas now is usually 2X3 feet. And I have used graphing , and the scribble pencil transfer, but like the idea of the projected photo to get my basic lines. Thanx for your time and advice. HappyseasidePEEP

Amazon has some astounding prices and reviews on mini movie projectors. Under $100.00

1- you could make a mov. or mpeg. file of your drawing with your digital camera. Download file to your PC.

2- hook your pc to the mini projector.

3- Once up and running - just 'pause' the video and start tracing on your canvas.

That's how I would do it ... if I wanted to use a mini projector.
