The easiest way is to do is to bring up a halo, do COPY (CTRL-C?) and then do 
a PASTE (CTRL-V?) in the target project but this may not work reliably on all 
platforms. If this doesn't work for you, you can transfer it via Supplies flap 
as Bert pointed out.

BTW, think of Etoys as peering into a theatre consisting of a play (project) 
on a stage (presenter), green rooms (sketch editor), main control room 
(toolbar flap) and prop rooms (flaps). When you switch projects, you are 
changing the play on the stage but the rooms (flaps) stay the same. When you 
select "make a painting" you are in essence applying make-up to an object. The 
painting itself is just a visual handle for manipulating the object.
