Light Box

I was so proud of myself. A couple of weeks ago, I made a still life 2 sided box and covered it with cream colored contact paper. I attached a light to the top which adjusted in different directions. I was all set! 

By the time my students showed up for class last on Tuesday, the box had started sinking at the top. I used big clamps to keep it upright for the class duration. By that afternoon it had sunk to the bottom. It is now on the trash pile!!

I found one of those really cool photographer's product selling light boxes that fold up. it has an LED light strip that attaches at the top, and comes with a white back drop or a black backdrop that you can insert in the box. 

I got the medium sized one and I can't wait to get it. They said it would be about three weeks to arrive. I hope it comes before my next class. it is going to be much more swell than my failed effort.

I will put off my still life studies until it arrives. I just love amazing new inventions. I will now be using upscale equipment for my still life studies. If only I could upscale my painting ability that fast!
