It makes it huge. Like I said, you can either put your drawing, or the photo you are referencing and place it in the opaque projector. It will project onto the wall at a much larger size (as large as you want--you just need to move the projector farther away from the drawing/painting surface to make the image bigger).

It's like those overhead projectors teachers used to use in school, but you don't need to have transperancies to use it--you can use opaque images, like drawings, photographs and cut outs from books or magazines, hence the name. Of course, any young posters on here will have no idea what an overhead projector is.
