Lighted art board brings unexpected fun.
One class I was never very good in was art. I’ve never been the drawing type and only ever seem to draw simple houses made from squares and triangles. That being said, I always liked coloring and am pretty good at staying within the lines. Now that you know my background in art, you will no doubt find it amusing that I am reviewing a Professional LED Light Board by Coocheer.
The LED Light Board is an ultra-thin tracing pad equipped with a dimmable touch button. This light board has a large working surface of 12″ x 17″ and is lightweight for easy portability. It’s got a number of uses including stenciling, 2D Animation, Calligraphy, Embossing, Scrapbooking Sketching, Drawing, Stained Glass, Quilting and more. The LED lights are high-efficiency and can run up to 50,000 hours.
When I first started testing out the light board, I was skeptical. I didn’t think that I was the right person to be reviewing it. Then I realized that I was the perfect person to review it because of my lack of art experience.
The light board was very easy to set-up. Out of the box, the instructions lead you to make sure you place the light board on a flat surface. I used a folding tray table, so really you could use any type of sturdy surface. The light board is powered by a USB cable connection. You can use either the power brick. that is provided or you can plug it into a computer for power. Once you have provided power to the light board, you simply tap the power button for the LEDs to come alive.
The light board very simply creates a backlit environment for you to use for sketching or tracing purposes. For me and my lack of artistic ability, I decided to trace a program cover from the musical Wicked. I used some standard 20lb multipurpose copy paper, which was lightweight enough that the light moved right through it. For my first attempt, I sketched the outline of the program cover pretty well and I had a great time doing it. When I was done, I decided to dig out my good ole Crayolas and trace the cover one more time.
This LED Light Board is a lot of fun and an impressive tool for creating some inspirational pieces of art. I can see some wonderful applications for this art board and can recommend it based off of its ease of use.
