When using an iPad you should turn on guided access and remove the ability to touch the screen. general-settings-accessibility-guided access. You can make it so that when you triple click the home button it turns off and on. very useful for this kind of thing

Tommy wiseau Is my life says:

Thank you this saved me

the pokemon family says:

I have a tablet yay!!!!

Anime Fox says:

Tablet doesn’t work, I have tried. It senses your hand underneath, and changes the picture, or leaves the app. So rethink your video, or at least try it out.

I could use my laptop, but it’s touch screen so yeah. Put my paper on it and everything on the laptop gets messed up.

Talise Snyder says:

I’m going to try using a picture frame flat on the table with fairy lights underneath because they are so small and their cord is super thin so the picture frame won’t be wobbly/uneven.

Idiot Eve says:

I put my phone with flashlight on under a low glass table, like a small coffee table, and use it like that it works pretty well

Amna Siddiqui says:

You can put the tablet under the box

Izzy G says:

I always would use a box upside down with my phone flashlight underneath and still do sometimes because my light box is tiny.

Loved the video I never thought to use these as light boxes even the tablet, so cool thank you for sharing, new to your channel and loving it. Your channel inspires me to keep up art everyday. Have a wonderful weekend.

Luma mag Regenbögen says:

The lights for 25$ and the Picture frame for 15$ are axectly as expensive as a huion lightbox for 40$.Avaireble on Amazon, Free shipping, comes in 2 days. Why making it harder than it is?
