Lamp
« on: February 02, 2018, 12:08:19 PM »
At Twist & Shout Christena was looking for inspiration and decided to make a lamp.
I helped a very little on the design and said I would have a play when I got home.
So a little while later and here is my lamp,
I might add some pen work to the shade to make it a little more tiffany like.

This is the one Christena made and I think I just added the puff inflated
although we did not take a picture once the black was added all the way around.

Thanks Rob, I had a play with version two this morning.

I changed the top, added an electrical lead and also put in a pull switch for the shade.

The pull switch shoes up better on the white background.

Then with lights on and off, trying to get the best shot.
I think I will go and do some pen work on the hearts.
It might look better.......then again it might not!
Only one way to find out.

I made a few more lamps over the weekend and to be honest I think
that every one has got worse rather than better than the original.

Another version of the lamp. I made this in a competition and had
to make it within 30 minutes. I had 2 minutes to spare.
