The Maskros flower

Maskros (the small one) and Dudero lamps

Description: Of course, the Maskros lamp is already gorgeous. But since the space in my room is limited I decided to transform it into a table lamp and add some color.

First the inside of all paper plowers were painted with a cadmium orange professional marker. It is important to make swift strokes to avoid the ink leaking through the paper.

Then I stripped the cord of the Maskros, filed off some edges, and added one pipe and the base of a Dudero lamp.

Voila, a cute Maskros table lamp is born.

    it looks very beautiful!! i have a few questions:

    you coloured all these little flowers with a marker??? can they be taken off of the lamp or did you do that with the whole ball on your lap??

    why is it important, that the ink isn’t leaking through the paper? to me it looks like it’s painted on both sides anyways?


  2. SO amazing. this one looks cool.
