DIY Five Pointed Rainbow Prism Lamp

The Five Pointed Prism lamp is made up of ten geometrical panels, which makes a prism, displaying the same repeated pattern all the way through giving out beautiful rainbow colours around your chosen space

I use only LED lighting in my designs to contribute to keeping the environment friendly.

Step 1: Begin Drawing/Designing Geometric Shapes

I begin by drawing my design on paper with rough sketches. I really enjoy geometrical shapes so I wanted to design one. I have had many failures on this design as I was not getting the mathematical measurements correct but I got there in the end. This is then drawn in illustrator to make this mathematically correct. I then send this file to a local laser cutter company to get these cut out of birch wood.

Step 2: Staining, Attaching Acrylic Film to Templates

When the 10 templates have been cut (5 large and 5 small) to make a prism shape, I then stain the wood in a rich dark chocolate colour and leave to dry.

To get the wonderful colours, I use an acrylic iridescent fil.

Adding the acrylic film:

I then cut out the correct size shapes out of iridescent acrylic film by hand, This acrylic film is super colourful, covering the whole rainbow spectrum, purples, pinks, oranges, greens, blues and from metallic and copper colours, depending where you view the material from as this changes in an instance from one angle to the next

This is then stuck to one side of the wooden templates.

I have to spray the wooden template to set the film as it has an adhesive so this stops any dust attaching while its sticking to the wood.

As seen in the images, you can see the film gives out a real colourful coppers & metallic colours as well as blues/purples, this is the great thing about the material. While this is setting for 24 hours, I get to work with making the wooden base.

Step 3: Base Making

The wood varies from oak, ash, birch, rose, walnut, basically any thing I can get my hands on, from local saw mills, suppliers and wood merchants. Up cycled wood comes into my projects a lot as I like to use wood which people don’t require any more from tables, chairs, doors any thing really. I also find wood in forests.

You have to make sure the wood is air-dried for at least a good 18months other wise the wood splits.

I then cut this to size on my a table saw. I then clamp 5 sides together and leave to set for 24 hours. When set, I then sand this down with 3 different grits to get a clean finish, leaving the wood smooth and soft.

I then stain the wood in the rich dark chocolate colour to match the wooden templates.

Next stage is wiring up the lamps. I use a vintage spiral cord and only use LED bulbs for my lamp.

Step 4: Back to Lampshade Making

Now the acrylic film is set, I use my craft knife to cut out shapes with in the template. This takes time as I have to be vary careful to not cut where is not need as this will show through when light is projecting. Cutting the shapes out lets the natural light beam through.

I then copper foil each template and the solder each template individually around both side with soldering iron. I found this to be the best way in constructing the lamp.

Step 5: Assembling the Lamp

To assemble my lamp:

This part is tricky, as I need two pairs of hands to do this so I ask fellow artists and my family to help me with this part. It’s very fiddly and getting the angles correct is challenging but well worth the finished out come. I do the soldering while I have an extra pair of hands to hold the templates to gather so I can pin them together with the solder. When the structure is complete, I then can go round the whole lamp and tidy up and fill all the gaps in with solder to make it neat and tidy with clean edges

The lamp sits at a height of 37cm and width 23 x 23 cm

I hope you have enjoyed my processes. If you have questions, then do ask.

DIY Miniature Fairy Garden Terrarium – Enchanted Mushroom Lights

Hi, in this tutorial I made a fairy garden terrarium with mushroom lights and a fairy mushroom house. I used some extruded polystyrene (xps styrofoam), battery operated led lights, transparent sanitary silicone sealant, tin foil, copper wire, hot glue, a little bit of polymer clay, moss and acrylic paint. I also used a glass cake cover. Step 1: Preparing the Board I first cut the styrofoam board to fit the glass cake cover. I adjusted the corners with a cutter, then I painted it black. Step 2: Adding the Lights

 

I then glued the lights to some pieces of copper wire. I made the wires in different lengths and also left more wire on the upper side (that will be helpful when making the mushroom caps). I glued the copper wires to the foam board with hot glue. I added some volume to the board using tin foil and hot glue.

Step 3: Making the Mushrooms

I mixed some red acrylic paint with silicone and made a paste. I applied the paste on the wires and leveled it using soap and water. For making the mushroom caps I used the silicone paste and wrapping foil. I applied some paste on the plastic foil and covered it. Then I started shaping it into a mushroom cap. For making the round shapes I used the cones inside of an eggs carton. I also covered the tinfoil base using the same silicone paste in black. Using some tin foil I made a cone and covered it with polymer clay. I sculpted a little house, baked it and painted it with acrylic paint.

Step 4: Moss and Details

I placed the moss over the board, carefully mixing the patches and used toothpicks to fix it in place. I also made some cute white dots on the house using white silicone.

I love the result!

Time and skills, and make it can be made of fabric remnants, surely you have different scraps, which can be put to use. And our detailed master class will help you with this.
This cover can also be used for storage of flash player or a miniature, here it is already possible to show your imagination. Cheholchik can be used as a pendant, it was convenient to use it, and he was always there.
Let’s get started …

Required Material:

lightning;
main fabric;
Lining cloth;
Nonwoven for sealing or batting;
pattern, scissors, thread and a good mood.

From the base fabric (in this case, and colored dots) cut parts 1 – piece 1, 2 – 2 pcs., 3 -. 1 pc. (Pictured Circuits numbered).
Lining (in our case striped) and nonwoven 1 -1 units 2 – 2 pieces.
Swing 1 about 9-11 cm 3 -. 4-5 cm Details are given with allowances. The size of parts may be changed depending on the purpose for which will be hereinafter used.

As a result, we have obtained a number of parts:

Sleek interlining to the three parts of the base fabric:

Take a semicircle lining fabric face up and put on his zipper, so that the upper edge coincided:

Set top semicircle of the base fabric (also raze edges)

Now the “structure” should flash, departing from lightning about 5 mm (for convenience staple items or stoned)

So we turned one-half of the top of the cover. Similar actions are performed in the second half. Here’s what you should have:
The right side of the box:

Wrong side of the box:

Take preform face up and sew the two sides of the zipper, departing from it 2-3mm. Unzip to the middle and hand stitched back and forth for fixing:

We make a loop at the edge of the lightning. Take part 3, fold the edges to the center and then in half:

Sew part of the long edge on both sides, stepping back 2-3mm.
Next, bend your future loop in half and sew to the place where previously secured the zipper:

Take parts cut for the back side (of the base fabric (dots) and the lining (striped)). Circle, a cut out of the fabric put face down on top of the face we put a circle of lining fabric:

Now all this will place on the front part of the cover (lightning necessarily rastegnut until mid) and stitch around the circle, stepping back 5 mm from the edge:

Carefully cut off the tails of unnecessary padlock and trim allowance circle (leaving about 2-3 mm)

It turns out, stitch along the edge of a round cover, retreating 4-5 mm.
