paper mache lamp

For this project i use paper mache to make a lamps.

First was making the glue with flour and water, and pasting strips of news paper to a balloon, when it dried I painted and make the whole to attached the chord with the bulb holder inside,

At first wanted to attached a piece of wood to the lamp so it stays steady

but after it was better to adjust the bulb holder with a threaded nipple.

Finally i added a piece of wood to the threaded nipple so i can hold clamps to the lamp in order to clamp it wherever i want.

Here are some pics

  1. Good job. I wonder what the lighting effect would look like if you left the paper mache unpainted. If there is a next tome, experiment with that first before painting.
