Hundreds and Thousands Regolit lamp

REGOLIT lamp shade & HEMMA cord set, translucent paper, wallpaper paste

Description: 1. Mix a small bowl of wallpaper paste, you won’t need much.

2. Cut out circles in different sizes from the translucent paper.

3. Plaster the lamp with circles, alternating colors and sizes. I created a gradient effect, using less circles towards the bottom of the shade.

4. Let it dry. Hang it up.

    great idea! I’ve hacked my Regolit today with red, yellow and orange circles and it’s wonderful.
    If you do it just be careful with the color papper as it might stain when applying the glue.
