I Am The Night... Light by Eryn-Grace-OMalley I Am The Night... Light by Eryn-Grace-OMalley
This, this was a hard piece to do. I worked on it for school over 16 weeks or so, then at least another 10 hours to add more stuff because THIS WAS AT THE ART SHOW AT SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!!!!!! I was pretty stoked to have gotten it in. I can't take much credit fo rthe base though, my dad built it for me after we spent a lot of time talking about it and working out the design. The lamp shade is about 174 pieces.

Let me know if I should retake the pictures. ~BrisngrFire came over to take pictures the morning I was heading up to Comic Con. Also, I'm not sure the best way to take pictures of light fixtures.

That is one awesome lamp! :D :D I had a problem with opaqueness for my first lamp on some of the glass types.  I ended up sandblasting the inside to create a more opaque finish to the glass.  This way, when the light is on, you don't see the inside fixtures, but it still maintains the colors. Keep in mind, if you have flashed glass that is facing inwards, that you tape off those pieces. Otherwise you'll sandblast off the color.  Good luck! :D Let me know if you end up changing it up!

Thanks for the tip! When I started making it I didn't even think about seeing the fixtures through the yellow and now it kind of bugs me. Sandblasting it might be a good idea. :glomp:

Yeah, my first lamp, I didn't either because no one told me it would be a problem. The effect is really cool, too.

I started looking into sandblasting and wondered what you used?

My local glass shop had one that I could rent by the hour. Maybe try that? Also, make sure that if you have flashed glass in your piece, that the flashed side is either on the outside, or you cover it with tape or something. Blasting will take off the color.
