Been wanting to get a float in this light I made back in 2005 for some time.
Not done yet, Would like to light it up as well.
Then it would be a light in a light.
Hand tied float by me just need a small light. Led?

Cool rain lamp, cute little float light too. I think LED is an excellent choice, no heat and not too much light. You probably want a white LED instead of red since the float is already colored. I don't know how your electronics knowledge is (mine isn't much) but you can find 120v LED circuit diagrams so you don't run a separate battery. A small neon bulb may be an option too ~ they flicker but that might not be a bad thing here (the indicator lamp on power plug-in strips is often neon)

Here are some new ones.
Thanks Mike, and you are right about the led light.
I think I will need to start over and make a whole new rain light.

I've got about 30 globes of all shapes and sizes that I intended to turn into lights.

And then I met a glass blower. So they're all wrapped in paper, and I'm debating on whether or not to just re-donate them to Goodwill.

Totally off topic, sorry. Love the lamps, man, and your how-to.

Here's more lights.
Tied with a thicker rope.

Skip,

Do you have directions for the rope part of your net lights? I did some macrame (sp?) plant hangers a million years ago so if I had some directions MAYBE this is something I could attempt if I could find some appropriate rope.

Thanks!
Lori

I do get PMs asking how I do my.. well everything.
And have helped some out.
BUT..
some time ago I got this PM..
And about five other PMs from him.

"Tiki ship you can dye nylon rope or cord with tea to give it that vintage look.
What do you use to cut the hole in the glass ball?
What kind of spray do you use to fog the inside?
I am not selling mine for profit, they are to hang in my back yard"

The guy did not even get my name right.
This person now sells more float lights than I do per year.
So I do want to show all I know, but fear creating more competition.
I don't make my living at this but selling these lights help me pay
for the stuff that helps me make these lights.
In time I want to show all I know, as I do like to help others with this stuff.
But when I help em and they cut in on sales well, I don't know.
Thank you.
Happy Holidays!!

Ha! Sounds like 1961Suck. Trad'r Bill had issues with him as well.

Your lamps are killer. I wish I had the ability to hang stuff from my ceiling because there are a few lamps of yours that are on my wish list. Hopefully one day!

Love the heavy rope ones the best--I can not even imagine what you do to get those knots so even but I appreciate you sharing!

Thanks marcus thorn comming from a great carver like you made my day!
Don't think I have a light in Australia yet.
I need one of your Litte Buddy meets the Headhunters, not like there's two.
Awesome work.

Cool, man. You've got that burnt effect NAILED.

A rainlamp, that is so great to see.

Hey, I've been using the awesome lamp I got from you for a nightlight, during the winter, in the huge garage where I'm staying at now. It works great... and so moody!
