As always, your work is just stunning.  I do have a question tho - what do you use for adhesive?  And can you use regular grout when doing a lamp (that is, will it take the heat)? 

Your comment about keeping the shades on the bases while working was appreciated - I could just picture the shade attempting to roll away!

For this project I'm using Lexel silicone. The reasons are mostly due to the shape of the shade itmakes it hard to use something that has a drying time. With silicone it sticks instantly.

The lamps use low wattage bulbs, and the shade is large enough it does not come close to the heat source. So regular grout will do just fine.

Working the shade on the lamp base was necessary. I had visions of the shade dropping and breaking. Smiley

Ohhh, so pretty...plus I'm learning!  Thanks for the pics in progress, it is so much fun to watch!  It is great that you share your work with us.

ps..my table mosaic has been put on hold due to money...I wanted some pretty expensive stone Cry  I'm going to work on doing something smaller.

Completely understand starting smaller. Glad my WIP thread helps. Smiley

My evil plan worked! Well kinda. I was able to hide in my bat cave for about an hour today, and worked on my lamps.

It is hard to see the clear and white glass in these shots, but you can see the minute progress from today. And maybe tomorrow I can hide some more... Roll Eyes
