hi all...I have a large standard lampshade frame...for the kind of lamp that stands on the floor. I ripped off the old fabric cos' it was hideous....the frame is one of those ones with sectiions like flower petals almost....the original fabric was sewn on in panels....one over each section....now I do not have a sewinng machine so repliating the original panels in my own fabric is gong to be hard as I would have to hand sew it all.
What I was wondering is whether I could use some sort of PVA glue and layer fabric over it that was soaked in the glue and water...kind of like papier mache on chicken wire....would it work in principal? Would fabric respond in the same way as paper...drying stiff?
Any ideas at all? I have loads of nice fabric to choose from...
oh...in the UK we call it PVA...I think it's like American "Elmos'" nt too sure though
