How To Enlarge A Drawing Without A Projector

1. How To Project Image Onto Canvas Without Projector

In order or to receive an enlarged image of your Drawing on a bigger canvas, you can use the following methods:

Manual Methode

a) Grids –

You need to measure out squares with strings or loose pieces of string and place them at even distances across the surface. Then mark off each square’s centre point so that when it is connected by lines drawn through its corners then all those points will form a rectangle. This way your drawing will be enlarged as much as you want without any distortions.

b) Transfer Paper –

Place this paper over your original drawing, trace its contours onto it using carbon paper and then just transfer all these tracing marks back again onto your new large piece of blank canvas in order to copy exactly what was originally there. The only disadvantage here is that if anything is not drawn with a very light hand then it will be too dark on the new canvas.

c) Charcoal –

This technique is similar to what was mentioned before, except that now you are just going to use charcoal instead of pencils and paper. First draw your original drawing onto the large piece of raw canvas using black or another dark colour charcoal sticks that have been burnt down into carbon rods which burn away less than when they were being used as ordinary chalk at school because their surface area is much smaller. Then all you need to do is remove these lines by rubbing them off either with an eraser or some turpentine applied in circular motions and this way revealing the white areas underneath where there has already been sufficient shading created beforehand.

d) Window –

You can use a window to project an image on the back of your canvas or any other surface, and then just trace it accordingly. This technique is useful if you don’t want to spend money on projector equipment but only have access to a computer for example. All you need are some sheets of paper taped over the glass that will form windows which reflect images onto surfaces such as walls and canvases from behind them when natural light shines through these screens.

Digital Method

a) Lightbox:

A lightbox is a device used in photography to produce even, diffused lighting on the subject. It consists of an open box with enough room for one or more people and a translucent surface that spreads outwards from the inside onto which there will be no shadows cast because it has been made using frosted glass.

b) DIY Projector:

You can make your own projector by stacking up about three dozen cardboard boxes into an inverted pyramid shape so that they are all leaning against each other at their bases and then cutting two holes near the top of this construction just big enough to fit your phone through them such as what is shown below in order to show its image onto any wall you want without having to use anything else apart from your phone.

2. How To Project Image On Wall From Phone

It’s possible to project images onto a wall from your phone, but you will use just a few household items and your smartphone!

  • Your phone
  • A magnifying glass
  • Mirror
  • Cardboard or shoebox of rectangular shape
  • Matte paint or paper, all black
  • Anti-cutter and a pair of scissors
  • Ruler
  • Tape/glue

Setting Up The Box:

Take the shoebox and cut off one of its ends on a 45 degree angle, leaving you with two rectangular shapes. Glue these together to form an L-shape that will be able to hold your phone securely in place as well as provide enough room for all other devices needed such as a mirror etc.

Setting Up The Mirror & Magnifying Glass:

You can choose any surface – it doesn’t have to be made from reflective material like mirrors or glass – but make sure there is at least one side which has been painted black so that when light shines through this area then no reflections are seen anywhere else. Now fit your magnifying glass inside the space created by the “L” shape box while also positioning them right against each other. Adjust the mirror so that it is just in front of the focal point created by your magnifying glass and you should see a clear reflection on this surface when shone with light from behind to illuminate what’s happening in front.

The Phone Gap:

Now all you need to do is place your phone vertically inside the gap between two pieces of cardboard at around 30 cm away from both sides as shown below, turn off its screen and make sure no external lights are reflecting onto it before waiting for about ten seconds until everything has been aligned properly. Limit any movements made during this time because they can ruin everything! Now shine some bright light either directly or indirectly through your back towards where the sun would be coming out if there were one such as shown below and you will see your phone’s image projected onto any surface of your choice.


This is a handy and reliable way to project images without the need for expensive equipment – all you will have to do is setup your devices in order as shown, choose a surface that has been painted black so that it doesn’t reflect any light coming from behind it back onto itself or elsewhere before finally shining some bright lights on this area. we hope that this article has helped you with your needs and hope to see more from you on our blog soon.
