I guess polymer clay, concrete, fondant and papier mache must qualify as well because all entries are reviewed to determine if the are eligible before they are accepted. However, I do cannot imagine what a cake decorator will do with a kiln if he/she wins :)
.. and thanks for your vote and your kind words
Also, the shade does not have to be cylindrical, it could be conical too. In fact, it looks so much cooler when the design changes due to changes in the piece's diameter! With this method you can transfer a 2D design into almost any 3D shape, the secret is to keep the angles constant so that the proportions are always the same.
Yes, that is a good idea, but you have to be careful not to cut through the fabric when you work with the knife. The other problem is that the tape sometimes leaves a sticky residue that will burn and disappear when you fire the piece... but you cannot fire a fabric lampshade. There is always a solution to every problem and I am sure it can be done. If you try, please post pictures! :)
Thanks! While pinstriping tape does save a lot of time, the process is still time consuming. Nevertheless, I love the results!
Thanks! Post pictures when you are done! :)
