Might want to find another solution other than epoxy for the top, it's clearly being heated significantly by the open flame, and may offgass the chemicals listed below  into whatever room you put this lamp in.

carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, iron oxides, chlorine, aldehydes, acrylic monomer fumes, sulphur oxides, aromatic amines, ammonia, isocyanates, hydrogen cyanide, and, at high temperatures, trace amounts of 3,3' dichloro-benzene

Also you know that funky insulation between the Metal base and glass bulb? Well apparently it's made from Lead Oxide so that can't be good am I right?

First two are already produced by open flame, since you are burning fat some nitrogen oxides are can be produced as well. But I agree, heated/burning epoxy is nasty.

Yeah, those first 3 aren't the chemicals anyone is concerned about.

If you do this DON'T RUIN A PERFECTLY GOOD LIGHTBULB!!!!! Use one that's burnt out which would be thrown out anyways

Finished this today and within 3 minutes of lighting, the light bulb started cracking around the screw-in base. Thoroughly disheartened.

Something to do for when the power goes out. Would this work without the wick like for an alcohol stove?
