autumn dragons paperclay lamp by bgerr autumn dragons paperclay lamp by bgerr
Paperclay lamp. Fantasy castles and dragons - autumn themed. Gave this to my parents - it's in the guest room where all their grandchildren sleep when they stay over.

Ah this is inspiring. What materials did you use? Just paperclay? I somehow would be scared that it would end up catching fire.

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 :D

I am in awe of how beautiful this is!  I have never seen anything like this before.  I see where you send the "how to" notes to people.  May I have your notes also please?
