Does any one know how to make a lantern with a wire frame. Additionally does any one know how to stretch the paper over a complex frame?

Check out the forum post "How on Earth do you make a china ball paper latern?" started by member Ed Van.  I posted links there to a great tutorial on the traditional method. 

As for complex shapes- looks like you don't stretch, as much as cut and paste.  The artist Isamu Noguchi really explored diffrent shapes, after he mastered the traditional.  Should be easy to find inspiration/technique from his work.
