A Light Box Story

I know how this can sound as a post title, but keep reading
and you will definitely see the connection and hopefully enjoy this

We use light box to cut
the glass over it; others use it to trace their basic design lines
when painting.

My first homemade
Florescent light Tubes light box Some glass artists build
their own light box with many features like daylight bulbs, with
sandblasted tempered glass top, I myself built my first light box
with Four 85cm height legs. However, no matter what your design
specifications are for your light box, there is always something
new coming along with more advanced features.

Recently, I was planning on making a
new light box with a cooling system to overcome the increasing heat
to the surface of the glass due to the heat that was being
generated by the light bulbs.  My idea was very simple, and I
was telling this to a friend of mine, Mary; we had our intensive
painting course together in England on June 2011, about my plans.
Mary then surprised me, and let me know that she already ordered
one large light box like the one she had, and it’s on the way to my

In a few days
the light Box arrived, it wasn’t the usual light box that I was
used to.  It was an LED Light Pad A950, so slim and the light
that it gave off was a real even white light, just the perfect
tool, but what made it an exceptional light source for painters was
that the surface never gets hot.  I use the Light Pad to do my
pattern copying, and I use it to check all of my glass cut

Using the LED light
pad while working on this week project

Taking care of this Light Pad was not
a problem, but as a precaution I did cover the glass top with a
clear vinyl to protect it from scratches.

I use the Light Pad to do my basic
undercoat for all the glass, I lay them over it, and then I do
light tracing for all the main lines.  This new Light Pad has
been a very helpful tool to use.  It gives off a much more
powerful light than the usual light bulbs in the old fashioned
light boxes, the Light Pad surface will not heat up which mean your
paint will stay moist longer, which will allow more time allowance
to paint rather than continually having to remix your

Surly this
Light Pad will enhance my painting; thanks to my dear friend Mary
again for this gift.
