A very simple method to transfer your favorite design onto a lamp.
I've chosen the skull logo from band, The Misfits.
If you're not familiar with them check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misfits_(band)
Also I recommend the songs, 'Forbidden Zone' & 'Lost in Space'
Obviously you can choose any design you want but this instructable will be tailored toward the skull design.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You will also need:
- a Pencil
- Fine Tipped brush
- Larger Brush
- Black Paint, acrylic, oil or fabric paints are best.
- 2 - 3 hours time and a little patience
Now you need to get your source image. To find the skull type 'misfits' into google images, or find your own design.
If picking your own design try to find one with:
- Only one or two colours.
- Large blocks of colour as well as some blank areas for light to shine through.
- Not too much small intricate detail.
Step 2: Disassemble Your Lamp
Step 3: Sketch Out Design
It's not worth taking too long over this as you will be painting over these lines. If you don't want to copy every little bump in the design just copy the general shape and make the rest up.
