You may know, that I made some Tiffany lamps from prints on overhead paper (transparants) some time ago. And later I learned how to put lights on ;-)
Yesterday I followed a link to www.bindelsornaments.nl on Marits blog, and read their tutorials about lamps. (They have an english site too, and great kits too BTW). I was surprised to see, that you can use nail polish as a glass paint and that it can make a solid surface on filigran materials. I had to try it at once! My kinds of nail polish isn´t many during the winther time, so I only had a few to choose from, but from now on you will see me spot all the unusual colors when there is a sale, dark green, blue, yellow and purple ;-) And yes I am going to order more filigran materials, this is a lot of fun!
Unfortunately the photo doesn´t really show, how the light shines through the "glass", it´s a very good effect.
