Thanks all4cake. I was searching youtube and not having any sucess, but that shows me enough to see how it works. Very cool, but wow, it's expensive! I think I'll stick to some cheaper methods for now!

Thanks,
Kathi

I'm sure one can acquire a projector for use on cookies say...in the toy dept...seems Crayola has one...for not a lot of money

Dick Blick has projectors that aren't as costly as the KopyKake(they carry the Kopykake as well as others) ebay...

This is the first projector I'd ever used...35+ years ago...yeah, the cookies would be up in the air if I had to use that one...made me smile to see it though...my Mother still uses it even now...

Hi Kathi!! Projectors are designed so that a smaller image (maybe 4x4 for example) can be blown up or reduced. There's a plate you put the image on and it projects down onto a surface (in this case a cake or cookie) and it projects in shadowy lines. You then take your buttercream or royal icing or whatever and outline (or you can take a pin and pinprick along the lines) to transfer the patterns. If you find Sweetopia's blog, she often has projector tutorials using cookies. I hope that made some sense! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Bob! Before this thread I never knew they had projectors like this. My only experience with projectors was the overhead style that projected on the wall. That is why I was so confused!!

Thanks again,
Kathi

Wow! That is a great price! There was a thread a while ago about the Kopycake and I did a good deal of research on the differences between the 300 and the 1000 and the 1000 is supposed to produce more light and have sharger image.... however, Sweetopia uses the 300 and gets superb results and that price that All4cake just gave the link to cannot be beat. Here is the old posting, if that helps:

Exactly Tracy!! I've had a lot of talks with Sweetopia and done a lot of research, which is why I'm going with the K1000 instead. icon_biggrin.gif
