Wow thats really pretty. Do you know how you are going to display it? I have one and want to put it up in my room somewhere but I can't figure out how to hang it. Anyone have any ideas??
Theres always the ceiling light fixture...or something my friend and I did in her room a LONG time ago...She had a floor lamp, so we secured it to the top of that, facing sideways and stuck the back end in a corner, it was yellow, so it looked like a big sun.

The thing is, I don't have an overhead ceiling light in my room. Which is poopy. I was thinking I could do the same thing with one of those cheap sockets attatched to a cord and run it up the wall, but they usually don't have a place to hot glue the umbrella. Its just all bulb. If I didn't use a light is there anyway I could make it stay not upside down so you can see the prettier top side? argh so complicated.

Ok, let me explain with a diagram



then you stick the ugly back part in the corner, so it is not to be seen, and you have yourself a neato lamp!

silly question: do the acrylic paints crack after you open and close them a few times?
