Sometimes when I’ve had a craft misstep like the one I related in my last post, I like to take some time to refresh my memory with a walk down Craft Win Lane. To that end, I bring you this horror show:
What? What IS that thing (besides a crime against humanity)? It’s a fake marble ceramic lamp, of course! And if you’re wondering why the shape of it gives you have a sudden hankering for a PB&J and a juice box, see if this jogs your memory:
When I first saw this lamp, I had a murky idea that I might open up a can of polymer clay whoop-ass on it. I wasn’t sure how my idea would play out, but I brought it home anyway and introduced it to the other occupants of my craft room, a.k.a. Craft Purgatory. I allowed it to marinate for a few months, and then it was ripe for redoing. I decided not to devise a polymer clay treatment and instead took a healthy helping of spray paint, a lampshade, a dash of spray adhesive and fabric, and look what happened!
And craft balance is restored. Thanks for stopping by!
