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.

How to Make Lampshade Using Plastic Bottle

Lampshade made using plastic bottle

use your waste plastic bottles and make with them a beautifully recycled lampshade.

Required Material:

  • Brushes
  • Decorative light
  • Plastic Bottle
  • Aluminium Wire
  • Green craft tape
  • Scissors
  • Glitter
  • Lighter
  • Cutter
  • Pencil
  • Scale
  • Craft Wire
  • Crepe Paper
  • Decorative stones
  • Glue Gun
  • Acrylic Colors
  • Color Palette
  • Decorative Tape

Step 1: Cut the Plastic Bottle

Take an empty plastic bottle and hold it horizontal. Cut the upper part of it carefully with a knife. This is to make the head of our lampshade.

Step 2: Paint the Plastic Bottle

Now paint the plastic bottle with green and yellow color. You can use acrylic colors for this.

Step 3: Draw Characters

In order to decorate further draw some tribal characters on the plastic head using black color. This type of drawing is called “Warli” art which is an ancient drawing art form in one of the tribes living in the forests in India.

Step 4: Final Look of Lamphead

This is how your lampshade head will look like after drawing is done.

Step 5: Make Plastic Leaves

Now we will make some leaves. For this, cut a small plastic piece from rest of the bottle and cut it further in leaves shape. Paint and decorate these plastic leaves in green colors and add detailing.

Step 6: Make Crepe Paper Leaves

Next, take a crepe paper and create some leaves out of it. Also, collect some ready made flowers from the market.

Step 7: Create a Wired Stand

Now take the wire and form a triangular shape with it. This will form the base of the lampshade.

Step 8: Complete the Stand

Erect the stand and it will look like this.

Step 9: Decorate the Stand

Now cover the stand with color tape and attach the plastic leaves and crepe paper leaves on it. It will start looking more beautiful!

Step 10: Fix the Lamphead to It

Now attach the lamp head to the stand at the top. Use glue gun to make it tight. Make a hole at the top of the lampshade and insert the stand shaft in it to fix it tight.

Step 11: Our Lampshade Is READY!

Finally, fix small torch light inside the lamp head with he help of glue gun. Now your lampshade craft is ready!

DIY Indoor Outdoor Concrete Lamp

This time it had to be easier to make, had to be larger, and with the option of placing it outdoors. After brainstorming here is the attempt of improvement. Check out the video for more details.

Required Material:
1. Led String Light
2. Felts Sheet
3. Cement
4. Large vase ( I used a 24in tall x 7in)
5. Drill bits
6. Random tree branch
7. Spray paint
8. Metal flashing

Making the Storage for Led Controller:

I took a piece of foam from a shipping package. Cut it to create a cylinder. I closed it by taping the side. then cut out a circle to close off one end. A paper cup would work as well.

Creating the Concrete Form:

I used a piece metal flashing to create the concrete form.

First I marked the metal flashing for the bottom of the form, I made this 5 inches tall. Next, I marked 2 inches above the first line. At this point, you will have two parallel line.

Now wrap the metal flashing around the vase. Close the flashing by taping the loose end. By the way, I’m using a large vase that’s 24 inches tall by 7 inches. You can find that at your local craft store.

Next, I took two 1 inch rubber seal and follow the line going around the interior. Following the line I drew out. I did this twice which gave me a two-inch path around the interior of the flashing. This part will shrink the interior, which will make the concrete fit right over.

Mixing the Concrete:

Take a piece of aluminum foil, place it down on a flat surface. Then I trace the vase and then the foam cup as shown. Use hot glue to secure the cup then the flashing to the marking.

Mix concrete and pour it in the form.

After a few days remove the flashing and rubber seal. The bottom was smooth so I only had to sand the top.

Using a Tree Branch:

I took a tree branch and sprayed it with black paint. Allow enough time to dry. Depending on the size of tree branch you chose, use the appropriate size masonry bit. I use a 1/2 inch bit to drill down to the bottom into the foam cup. Test that everything fits nicely.

Install the Light:

Drill a hole in the lower part of the concrete form for the power end to pass through. Next, use hot glue to hold the plug in place.

Pass the Led String light power end down through top then connect to the power cable.

Adding the Lights:

Feed a few feet of the led into the vase. Then place the branch in the vase and feed more led as you proceed.

Now sit the vase on top of the concrete. I placed a felts pad on the bottom to protect any surface.

The Finish:

I love the way this lamp came out. The LED String Lights works extremely well. I was able to get this lamp to work approximately 50 feet away. Hope you have a blast when you make yours.

How to make oyule lamp

The Oyule lamp is an oil lamp made of light bulbs from the artist Sergio Silva, who sells them for $650.
I agree that it does look nice, but the materials only cost about $10:
Paraffin oil
A wick
Two burned out light bulbs
A piece of wood
Black gloss paint
Twelve neodymium magnets
(8 small cylindrical magnets, two large cylindrical magnets, two spherical magnets)
EpoxyMy version of this lamp is slightly cheaper than the original though, the differences are listed on the pictures.

Step 1: Hollowing The Bulbs

For this lamp to look nice the small black piece of glass on the base of the bulb must remain intact, which means the entire base must be removed. (as opposed to breaking the glass off)First remove the small piece of metal on the glass part of the base, it will help to desolder it from the wire inside.
(the small piece of metal is one of the electrical contacts, the other is the part that’s threaded like a screw)

With an X-Acto knife or box cutter carefully pry the base away from the glass, it is attached by some sort of adhesive, but nothing else. Some are attached better than others, and are more difficult to separate.

Next, using a screwdriver carefully break the glass holding the filament.
Clean up the sharp edges as best you can.

Step 2: Wicks

Go to a local craft store and buy a wick, make sure that the wick does not have a wire center and is made for an oil lamp. Depending on the width of the wick you may have to double it like I did. (If the wick is too thin it will not soak up the oil fast enough for a continuous burn.)You may discover that the hole in the base is not large enough for the correct diameter wick, if so you will need to file the hole to make it larger.
(Attempting to drill it would most likely end with a broken base)

Step 3: Reattaching The Base

The base must be removable to allow refueling, and though it would probably stay on because of its weight, I felt it needed to be more secure so I attached it with magnets.On the glass part of the bulb where base attaches to there are two small indentations which provide enough space for a small neodymium magnet to be attached to the inside of the base.
I attached a 1/16in thick magnet with a diameter of 3/16in to each side of the base using epoxy. On the inside of the bulb, where the indentations are, I did the same.
*I tried to do this with super glue, but it melted.

Step 4: Creating the Base for the Lamp

The base of the lamp was made from a 0.75 X 5.5 X 24 inch piece of wood. You can really use any size you want, but for the bulbs I was using I felt this was a good size.After cutting, drill holes for the magnets that will hold your bulbs on. You can put these wherever you want but I separated my piece of wood into four quarters and put the magnets in the center of two diagonally opposite quarters.
(its easier to look at the picture than figure out the explanation)

Because a drill creates a cylindrical hole, cylindrical magnets look the best, and make sure the holes are the right depth, because the magnets are very difficult to remove.

Now sand the surfaces, edges, and corners to smooth out and round the piece of wood.
Apply a layer of sanding sealer, allow it to dry, and sand again with a very fine grain of sand paper.
Paint with black gloss paint (or any other color) and allow to dry.

note: To clean the paintbrush you used for the sanding sealer, use mineral spirits (turpentine) not water.

Step 5: Finish It!

All that’s left to do is:
Place the spherical magnet in the bulb
Fill it with oil

Because of the magnets that hold the base of the bulb on, getting the spherical magnet in can be difficult. To do so easily place a straw in the bulb, put the magnet in it, and push with a skewer.
Use a funnel to fill your bulbs, place the lid (base of the bulb) on, and attach them to the wooden base.

Do not pick up the lamp while the candles are lit, even when they aren’t be careful because the light bulbs rotate very freely.

DIY: Handmade jute lampshade

Hello, dear friends! Yesterday finished work on the new lights. I hasten to share the result. To use the base of the bottle of blue glass. Lampshades made of using his technique “Jute filigree”. did not. A lampshade in the shape of a hemisphere gathered on the form (flower pot) made separately from the branches. I did not know how things will turn out. Between the branches were gaps closed and connected the composition in the process of the various elements in the form of curls and leaves. The result had been the same for quite solid shade without gaps. The base was decorated with the same branches and curls of jute, Marbles, and pearls. Another lamp with a four-sided shade. In working with him, I also use a bleached jute (the idea came to whiten the rope in the process). Received an unusual, even more interesting, in my opinion. The composition is three-dimensional. The base also graced the simple and bleached jute, Marbles and contour on the glass. To use the backlight LED tape. It is safe and bright. Movement is. The cap is almost ready. Third still in operation. This is normal and bleached jute. This is also a jute. I experimented with painting with acrylics.

How to create a hot air balloon lamp

The idea came after a trip to the store with the chandeliers and the like. I saw there a beautiful ceiling lamp in the form of a balloon for children’s, everything would be fine, but that’s standing is a miracle as much as 2.5 thousand. Although it was clear that to create something like that would be very difficult not to! Since then he lit up and slowly began to buy all you need for a chandelier.

Materials:

– Shade Regola for IKEA pendant lamps

– Cord suspension Hemmi from IKEA white

– A small basket, for example, a basket for writing utensils from IKEA

– Small linen white cloth

– Satin ribbons: turquoise thin (1.5 m) wide turquoise (1 m) and red wide (3.5 m).

– Multicolored felt thin (4 colors)

Instruments:

– Sewing machine (optional)

– Scissors

– Glue gun

– Stapler

– Matches

Getting creative.

1. Basket: Since I took the basket from the IKEA (she is a decorative line of the holes on the top edge), I decided to decorate its broad ribbon of turquoise color. Just slipped the ribbon through the holes on the top edge of the basket. The end of the tape led to the basket and secure the adhesive gun.

2. Bags: fabric cut into 4 rectangles 12×5 cm – and sew them from plain bags under the scheme: Once the bags are sewn, fill them with filler (wool or pieces of fabric). Slicing thin turquoise ribbon into equal segments always burns the tips of using matches and tying the bags on the bow. Then, cut out of felt 4 freeform heart for every heart the color of felt. Hearts glued to the finished pouches using the glue gun. Something like this, you should get:

Then the bags to be glued to the basket in a circle.

3. Shade and bands: For starters, you need to measure out 4 lanes wide red ribbon, it will be the main holders of our baskets, ribbons length to suit your taste. You can estimate, putting the tape one end to the upper point of the lampshade, and the other to the basket and thereby decide which length suits you. Do not forget to burn the edges of the tape! In the eyes divide the upper opening of the lampshade into 4 pieces and put a notch, take a tape edge and Bends it to resection short tip inside the lampshade and a stapler (preferably the smallest), attach the ribbon to the paper lampshade. Repeat the operation with the remaining three segments of the tape.

The lower edge of the Ribbon Factory inside (as shown in the first figure) of the basket at the 4th parties and secured by a glue gun.

Then, take the tape equal to the circumference of our lampshade + 25-40 cm. Additional centimeters will go to the bow and nodules. In the middle of the eye we define our “lampshade-ball” and Tinea his belt, as follows:

On the ground, with vertical ribbons crossing do nodules, nodules will be 4:

Tape ends are strung together in a beautiful bow.

Actually, that’s all we get as a result of a wonderful lamp for the nursery, with his own hands:

DIY: Beautiful (Night Lamp) Heart ball of thread

Lamp-night lamp “Loving Heart” (published in w. Master (Belarus))

In anticipation of the holidays, we overcome suffering – “What to give to your loved ones?” I want something unusual, surprising, no matter what do not like. I would like to express our overwhelming feelings, and the words hard to find? Let’s give your favorite marvelous light “Heart”. With this gift, you will be able to say everything without words.

The night can give mothers on Women’s Day, girlfriend or daughter for a birthday, a favorite on Valentine’s Day heart “beats” from the senses and that’s it. Light a lamp in a romantic evening only strengthen your feelings.

And you can just for yourself, your favorite, to create a miracle. The interior of the bedroom, it certainly attracted attention.

everything you need to prepare in advance.

  • 1 -2 thread spool (pink or other colors), the color of a lamp depends on your decision.
  • 2 PVA glue, not less than 100 ml (not the building!) Adhesive point or hot glue (glue gun)
  • 3 thick needle, long
  • 4 ball in the shape of a heart (you can make a light and around for yourself). For the master class, we took a round ball.
  • 5 square-shaped plate (20 ’20) of a thickness not less than 1.5 cm. You can replace the wooden photo frame with wide planks or solid cardboard box.
  • 6 napkin color (can be replaced with cloth or acrylic paint). The stand can be issued and in its sole discretion)
  • 7 -tailender a roll of toilet paper.
  • 8 dried plants and artificial flowers, beads, feathers, in short, something for decorating our hearts.
  • 9 drill
  • 10 blinking Christmas tree garland.
  • 11 scissors

Getting to the manufacture of

1 First, make shade for our lamp. Inflate balloon heart to medium size. The size of the inflated balloon and will be the size of our lampshade.

2 bottles of glue PVA bottom pierced with a needle with two vdet in her thread.

Figure 1) extends a needle through the bank, took out the other side, take out the needle thread. Pierce the bottom necessarily banks unnecessarily. the thread must always be wetted with glue, and the amount of adhesive in the work decreases. For the convenience of working with a thread spool, and a jar of glue put in jars.

3 end of the thread tying the tail of the ball and start winding a ball
Fig. 2). The thread must always be wetted with adhesive. Initially, it will be inconvenient and thread all the time to slip the ball, but we’re stubborn, hard-working, we will succeed!(Figure 3) tauten thread diagonally lengthwise, crosswise. After 10 min, the winding becomes easier. (Fig. 4)

First, we get the hand and understand the principle, secondly, the thread stops the slide, unnecessarily. It will cling to the wound.

Roundball winding easier than the “heart”. The “heart” do not forget to wrap the “ears”. Look where we are sending to the emptiness and thread. Drum thread pool is not empty. If the glue is ended earlier thread, just  it from other banks. That wound ball (Fig. 5) Leave it to dry. When the thread is almost dry, punctures the ball. Threads will be tough and will keep the shape.

4 Getting manufacturing base. I took a stand for the tablet. Drill a hole in it (you can help one of the men, but not one for which it will be a surprise. Although …. Maybe he was. He did not even guess what it is and why.) The hole should be of a diameter that through it might get through Christmas tree garland. Instead, you can use a thick plank picture frame, replacing the glass with a thick cardboard. Or, in extreme cases, try the box with a thick, dense cardboard, not too thin. (Figure 6)

5 over the aperture ring of glue cardboard, cut from of roll of toilet paper. We attach it with glue well bay. Outside strengthen a strip of paper, grabbing one corner of the ring, the other coming on board. The board. I pasted cloth (PVA) and a bit overshadowed gold acrylic paint. (Figure 7 and Fig. 8 and Fig. 9). On the reverse side, plates make a groove for the wiring from a garland (Fig. 10) 6 Threads almost dried up? Punctures the ball. The ball should unstick itself from the thread. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait until dry. If the ball has dried thoroughly and piercing not unstuck from the thread, will come to his aid. Through the thread is passed a pencil or any wand inside her trying to unstick the ball. If the thread balloon wrinkled, pressed, then we, the same wand inside his straightened, but still try to do everything patiently and carefully. The ball was torn inside the thread. (Fig. 11)

We’ll get it through the skin. It is more convenient to do it with tweezers.

7 At the bottom of the ball (where was the tail), cut out a hole in the form of a lotus. (Fig. 12).

The hole diameter should be with our ring. And it sits on must be tight. (Figure 13). Dress up the ball on the ring, pouring glue. The petals are glued to the outside of the ring. Then you will feel that the ball as if he falls, and “asks” on the stand. Just press it and the place where he sat down on the stand we coat with glue. Just make sure that the lamp was flat, not tilted. (Fig. 14) 8 Zadekoriruem our “Heart” (in our version, to explain the ball.) I used dried flowers. But you can come up with something of their own. Stick to your decor thread, make “heart” of the most beautiful and loving. (Fig. 15) 9 Bottom stand pokes through a hole in the “heart” of Christmas garland. Outside the reserve wire that embarks on the groove and attaches it with glue or adhesive tape.Enjoy your evening

How to make jar vase lamp

Here is a curious thing has turned me from a simple jar of coffee from under. It is quite universal. Want to be stained flashlight … And if you want, vase!

I’ll tell you how to make such a flashlight.

So, we need:

  • jar of coffee from under the
  • masking tape
  • acrylic paint black (paints in the can)
  • stained glass paints (suitable for beginners “Gamma” water-based)
  • contours on the glass (black and gold)
  • paper template for a picture
  • wire
  • tin cans cap
  • scissors
    Jars washed by label grease.

On those sites, we are not going to paint, paste self-adhesive tape (I have it oral). You can use masking tape. Black paint from a container covers our jar. Give the dry somewhere 30-40 minutes. Dried up? Gently peel off the film. It is now we do not need. Our jar shaped like an old lantern. Here on this image and we shall make a start. With black dots, contour masks the unevenly torn edges. Since this will be a lantern, to draw it on the paper flame. We put into our sketch, fasten with tape. Gold contour draw flames. And so – all four sides. Here’s what happened. Give the circuit to dry. One hour is enough. Stained glass paints colorable our flame. From all sides. But! Each side must be completely dry! Not less than a couple of hours in a horizontal plane. Only then will proceed to the next painting. Result (painted all four faces): The handle for the flashlight I made from copper wire. Just two wires twisted together. Our “pen”. Maybe someone has a more interesting design. I – what happened). Around the neck of the jar – do the same intertwined rim, anchoring our pen and painted the same black paint from a container. In this case, it is sure to cover the jar itself something to paint got only on the neck and the handle itself. And here it is – our flashlight! Spark of my soul)) To install the candles offer the following construction. It will be clearly fixed in a jar and it will be convenient to light a candle.
So, take the lid off the tin cans and doing a few notches. Next cut off here in such a way to get the “sun”. Buckling edge. Insert a candle – come)! Punched in two places at the hole and pulled through them a copper wire. Fold the edges to avoid scratching the edge of our flashlight. Another angle to make it clear: And now the fun! We lit candles and paste it into a flashlight. Antennae fastening just fixed on the neck of the jar (which, by the way, I also painted black paint). And we admire! )) Can also be used as a vase – too beautiful! And it is possible and so … But better still as a flashlight, is not it? )))))) Oh, and our flashlight to bedplate been protected, you can glue the circle of velvet cardboard.Thank you for your attention! Success in creative work!

How to make beautiful lamp house

This master class is not exactly step by step, it is more to replenish the piggy bank of ideas than a recipe creativity.

To work on a lamp-house “of what is at hand,” we will approach:

-Let the packaging of juice or milk
-Paint scotch or ordinary scotch
-gips (Alabaster)
-what remained of repairs or specially purchased (in my case ready acrylic plaster)
-Paul tube of any diameter and material, the main thing that took place inside the cord. (in my case a plastic piece of small-diameter pipe – a fragment of the old exhibition cages for cats)
-level
– cups
-gypsy bandage (the number depends on the size of the future building)
-Let plastic bottle (in my case green)
-plastic scissors
– food film
-PVA
– rope
– stack (can be improvised from wooden skewers, for example) for the convenience of working with plaster and plaster bandage
-water to soak the bandage
-acrylic colors for the final finishing of the building
-lack (in my case, matt parquet ) in terms of manufacturing – they are individual, is largely dependent on your skill, the size of the house, and the degree of “fluid” a plaster base and bandage. At all stages of the construction of the house, you inevitably soak it with water. And after the new operation will have to wait for it to dry, for example, painting and finishing. While you’re working with plaster, bandage or plaster, you can proceed to new stages without waiting for complete drying. But the finish is possible only completely dry the product. My house is big and cox long.
Ideally – 1 day to assemble the entire structure (if the house is not great), and a half a day to dry, and 3-4 hours for painting. Recommendations to accelerate drying: finishing work at any stage prior to painting, leave your workpiece on a thick layer of paper towels or wipes. Gypsum is very hygroscopic. And because the water always tends to flow down, you will inevitably and, at times a long time (a few days) can be wet plaster base and the lower part of the walls. Napkins speed up the drying process. 1. Make a lamp base for this stage I do not have a visual image, so explain the essence of the words. From the usual clay completely any color makes a long sausage. Sausages flattened, closable in the ring and out of the circle forming the perimeter of the foundation of our future plaster casting.  It is set firmly on any flat surface, I use an ordinary kitchen table, the laid cling film, for the convenience of the base separated from the surface of the countertop. Once we found our path pouring over level ground, breed alabaster in the cup and got solution pour mold. At this stage, I fixed the plastic tube, just dropping it into another liquid plaster and lining on a level, fixed until dry. Plaster hardens very quickly, but the handset is not yet to be firmly fixed on the basis of its further strengthening strips of plaster bandage, Then we wait when the ground is dry and you can build a house. Drying depends on the size, thickness, and on how much liquid you have dissolved gypsum. Building a house can be in principle, and without waiting for the complete drying, we can wait for a sufficient strength. When the blank has cooled (gypsum always heated during solidification), you can shoot a plasticine ledge and continue to work. The photo and the blank gripped plasticine standing on a ledge, which was filmed with her.

2. The walls and roof – are building a frame house
to the frame of the building, we need empty packages of juice or milk, paint, or ordinary adhesive tape to fasten the structure.
The packaging mark up the windows and doors, suitable for our taste roof and collect all the items on the tape, checking evenness level design.
The walls are attached to the base by means of strips of plaster bandage. Next outside our construction glue on the adhesive tape pieces of plastic bottles in the window openings and paste our whole design first layer of plaster bandage.

3. House decoration

My house in half-timbered style, so the next phase of the I form the characteristic form of half-timbered houses of folded strips of plaster bandage. Making the layout frame as thin strips of plaster bandage. At this point, I handed the cord, as I yield to the cord of the lamp side and after the finish, there was a risk that I will not be able to push it. Cord fix with tape and wrapped his masking tape to avoid staining.

after starting a sketch of the layout wall plasterer. I use a simple, soft brush. Plaster wall background levels. And the layout of wooden beams I put longitudinal strips to simulate wood on wet plaster.
When ready, our primary frame with the finish, you can do the roof. It is also of plaster bandage. plastic material can be simulated tile or cane to make a variety of ways. 4. Gardens bloom When our house is ready, we need to decorate it with flowers, make a trail of pebbles and grass surrounding the house. I buzz your house roses. For branches, I take economically twisted rope. On the glue PVA glue pieces of rope, simulating climbing roses, to the walls of our house. Further, from a plaster bandage an emerging green, roses, grass around the house. To track our plaster in handy again. We impose her plump layer, level and causes notches in the form of individual stones. Now we wait for the complete drying. At the same stage electrician install, anchoring cartridge on the tube, decorate its base. And we do the first fitting lampshade. 5. Painting and final finish.
I liked my house at all stages of the final. And in white color with a white shade. Then it was painted black for further decoration. But in black with silver-steel shade, it looked great.
For painting, I use acrylic paint for interior and Color. For small areas fit and artistic acrylic paint. The finishing decor was made of bronze with acrylic paint using a sponge from the sponge for washing dishes. After complete drying of the house was covered with parquet matt varnish
Fabric Lampshade I toned coffee solution with PVA. Now, not only the desired shade of tone but also runs the flavor.

Enjoy your creativity and new ideas!
