Does anyone know a good material for making a custom light fixture other than glass?
My mother's birthday is coming up soon and since two things I know are that her current light fixture is crap and her favorite flower is a cala lily I want to make a cala lily light fixture. Most of it is uncomplicated enough I can do it no problem. (wiring, attachment, etc.)
The one thing I am a bit worried about is the actual bloom part. I can negate the heat issue by using an led system to keep the heat down (I prefer it anyway) but I can't think of any material which I can easily shape to the desired form. I don't have the tools or experience to do glass or metal on a serious level. I briefly considered polymer clay, but that seems like a rather large piece for it.
I am an adult and I won't hold you responsible if it all goes pear-shaped so any advice is welcome.
