Introduction: Ikea Basisk Light Shade - Painted!

Picture of Ikea Basisk Light Shade - Painted!

We got two of the basisk pendant lamps for our sitting room but they just looked a bit blah.  As they are glass, I remembered my glass paints and got to work.  The design was based on some fabric I have of interconnecting circles.  I wanted a fresh, Indian style look reminiscent of Saree paisley patterns but wanted to keep the circles, so I dotted outliner and used a thin brush to create the pattern using standard glass paints.

I left them to dry over night before putting them up.
