Thank you! I use several materials: the base is a styrofoam hollow ball and the base of the towers are toilet paper rolls. Then all is covered in a air drying clay, which is basically a mixture of cellulose, woodlglue, salts and some additives. And yes, this could catch fire when it gets too hot. Therefore I only use LED-lights and a prefixed cord and fitting. LED doesn't get warm. Anything else would melt the styrofoam...
Oh, I wouldn't even have thought that the styrofoam would let the light through that well. Thanks for your reply! I need to try out something like that in the near future. Why buy boring lamps if you can make such individual pieces
Hi, This is truly amazing. I am just a mom but want to do something amazing for my daughter this christmas. Could you share howto do this amazing lamp? I know I would not be as good as you but it would be special and I will definitely try it !! Thanks.
Thank you so much! I have no problems sharing the tools of the trade and I have had many questions as to how these lamps are made. Therefore I have written a very basic how-to. I'll send it to you in a note!
Thank you! This one took me quite a lot of time, but that has to with all the tiny details this lamp has. I think this one took 40 to 50 hours to complete. You can make a smaller more basic version in a lot less time though. The first one I made I did in a weekendworkshop, which took about 10 hours.
I have absolutely no problem sharing the tools of the trade - I'll send you a note with a basic how to.
