Here is some progress on the paint.
I first put a tan paint in the cracks/ highlight areas.
Then I brushed them with a toothbrush.
Right after that I hit it with a damp paper towel.
Last I brushed it all over to take away the too shiny look.

skipper you can save loads of time this way....if the base coat is layed down first, coat it with spray laquer. when it's dry, slop on the acrylic paint in the recessed areas and with a wet paper towel, lightly skim over it till you get the effect you want. repeat as necessary. then when that dries, dust it with more laquer to seal it in and your ready. this will cut your time in half or more. i'm just sitting here cringing at the thought of you haveing to use that little paint brush and that bristle brush......



..the effect will be the same and the time saved will be better spent making more lamps for the rest of us bums to buy....

It is DONE!!!
I used epoxy to glue on the lamp part.
Then I glued on a felt pad for the base.
And now I'm done.



SOLD
