Tiffany lamp

I've finally chosen the wallpaper for my roombox and decided on the main concept of the wall decoration. I'm so excited about it!  But before I assemble the roombox I need to fix the lights for it. I hope to make two lamps, one of them should be something like Tiffany:) I actually tried to make couple of them today:







Basically it's a polymer clay. And unfortunately I'm allergic to it, so I had to make it quick. I want to use some of them for the nightstand.  The base of the lamps imitates the wood like in the real ones, though it's hard to notice it on my pics:) :

@The Old Maid: Thank you! I made the cane first and then applied to the form. Pretty easy, though, somehow, I spent half of the day doing it:) Though I managed to make two lamps, which is great.

@Marta: Thank you so much for your kind comments! Oh, I wish someone from my family was a cabinet maker, my hubby works in IT, but I think it's our dream to work with wood and create something. I'm so glad your husband liked my work! That means a lot to me!

@Deni: Thank you! In reality it looks even better:) I don't know, maybe I'm not good at making photos:)

Victoria said...

@Merry Jingle: Thank you Ira! I wish I could spend more time working with clay, but sadly I can't because of an allergy. That's why I'm more into furniture:)

Victoria said...

@Paky: Thank you! I hope to try different type of clay, so I could worki with it a bit more.

@Rosanna: Thank you so much Rosanna! Yeah, I hope to install lights and the transparency will be better seen:)
