32  Superman lamp,pic heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 03, 2014 07:51:21 AM
Thrift store lamp,takes a teardrop 60 watt bulb. Lampshade I already had-I meticulously painted my daughter's ball lamp to be a Bob-omb lamp, then found out the lamp no longer worked! So, I salvaged the lampshade. Grr.
Anyway! Shade painted black, Between the small bulb and the painted shade, this is not a light up a dark room or do homework by it lamp. But it looks cool. The Superman pages were from a beat up children's book. Glued down, and the whole thing covered with brush on clear sealer. The lamp was originally a tired brassy color and maroon, I painted it black and gold.

Do kids even know what a phone booth is anymore? Up,Up,and Away!

Clark Kent hears a cry for help! Oh no, a bank robbery!

Time to rip off the shirt and take to the sky! And what kind of white shirt does he have that the bright blue and red long johns don't show through? Does he hid his cape under that shirt too?

Does he wear those red boots to the Daily Planet?

Cowed by his super might as well as his fashion sense,the bank robbers wisely surrender.

One more pic.


The next lamp,I bite the bullet and go out and make color photocopies of my comic pages. I've found out that nothing keeps the printing on the reverse of the page from showing through-not gluing it to white paper, or black paper, or painting the back,or brushing on a base coat of mod podge/white glue. Here, with the shade itself black, it works fine-plus, these aren't thin comic book pages, but pages from a battered book.

The interesting clay beads are handmade,and a gift from a fellow crafster. Almost all my chain stash-I need another thrift store trip!-,tiny mirrors, gold pearl beads from a cheap necklace, and a long string of beigiesh-greyish pearl beads from an old broken necklace. The base? A cheap piece of wall art from Dollar General,spray painted black, then lightly oversprayed with gold. And good old E6000.

pearl handled revolver 002 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr

A cheap plastic toy that had good embossing. Blue,copper and black paint, rub n buff, and tons of white  nail polish, with a tiny tiny bit of pink to attempt a hint of mother of pearl iridescence.
The two white gears are from a couple of cheap plastic tape runners after I'd used them up.

40  Rocket Ship...thing in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: September 11, 2014 07:35:12 PM
The round thing is some part to some toy, who knows what? Painted the red plastic black, then went over it with silver. A sample piece of fabric in a retro atomic print glued to cardboard to fit inside, and a space ship. You know I couldn't find a toy spaceship anywhere?I bought a party favor bag of plastic planes,or maybe they're space shuttles?, from Dollar Tree. Took two,cut off the wings, glued them together, painted it red with a little silver, and glued a couple of thumbtacks to the back. Reminded me of an old metal toy with the paint wearing off.
Not completely happy with it, but it's done for now.
