Kopykake projector cookies, pls share - Page 11

post #151 of 189
Thanks for letting us know! I'd like to see a tut on preparation before piping. I was having problems sizing and stuff. So i'd love to see the steps from finding an image to getting it into the projector to be clear enough to see.
I wish kopykake would have better instructions on how to use their projectors....

Thanks for the info. that is big... I'm not sure I can justify the cost and the storage space... especially since I'm just a hobbyist...as much as I'd love to have one.....

Can anyone tell me... how big is the unit?


thanks!

The k1000 is pretty hefty in size. From top to bottom, it measures about 3 feet. The light box is approximately 12" wide, 6" tall, and 6" deep. I store mine in the basement, so I have to lug it up the stairs every time I want to use it. But it's worth it! I wouldn't know what to do without one.

Bonnie, I'm a hobbyist too! The cost is definitely a consideration, but if there's any way you can swing it, go for it! You'll use it constantly and I doubt you'd regret buying one.

I just got my Kopykake 1000 today and was shocked at how big it was! I'm going to have to decorate my cookies sitting on the floor because I don't think I have enough counter space right now to manage.

Mine's still in the box! icon_eek.gif It came earlier this week but I've been swamped with orders and I'm out of town this weekend, so I'll just have to wait til next week... icon_cool.gif

I just used mine for the first time today. This might be a silly question, but has anyone ever tried to use fluorescent bulbs in the Kopykake? It gets so darn hot under there with the incandescent bulbs!

All righty, I need help! icon_biggrin.gif I got the beast all set up (I got the K1000, so I call it the beast) icon_lol.gif and I'm having some difficulty with (of all things) shadows!!! I got the baseboard model and I'm projecting down onto a cookie and when I go to pipe the image I'm working in my own hand shadow. icon_confused.gif What gives??? It seems like the light is projecting straight down where the image is but that's also where my hands need to be to pipe. So the question is, what am I doing wrong?

I'm having the same problem as bobwonderbuns, and I'm about ready to chuck my projector out the window! I've tried moving it around, moving myself around, standing up, sitting down, twisting my hand/arm around... all to no avail.
I'm trying to make some superman logo cookies for a friend's grandson's birthday, and I can't get it traced because of this!
Help, please! Does anyone have any tips?!

Thanks!

You have to learn how to work slightly off-center. It takes a bit of practice to catch on to the best ways to use it, but I LOVE my projector. For cookies, I rarely pipe directly onto the cookie. I will use the projector so I can draw the design onto the cookie, then decorate once they're all drawn.

Thank you, GeminiRJ... your suggestion really helps. It's so much easier to draw with a marker because you can pick it up if you need to. I'm going to try this for the Superman cookies.

Thanks again!

Thats also what I do - trace on with an edible marker and then put the projector away. Then pipe designs on

Hello!

I'm about to purchase a projector. Do you have any discount/ coupon codes that I can use? icon_smile.gif Might as well save a bit money! icon_smile.gif
