Sorry, I don't want to give detailed instructions for this lamp because I want to keep it as an original concept. But I will post general directions for paper mache.

I used a balloon as a base. Lube it with a thin layer of vasaline so you can remove the balloon later.
The recipe for paper mache is 1 part all purpose flour and 2 parts water. Bring water to a boil, then whisk in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Turn off the fire immediately when the paste forms, or else it will seize and burn. While you wait for the paste to cool before you can touch it, rip or cut about 4 cm x 15cm strips of tissue paper, news paper, whatever you want. Newspaper is definitely stronger but it it not transparent. When you can touch the paste, dip your paper strips one at a time in the paste, then squeegee the excess with your fingers. Slap it on the balloon all around. Keep going until you have 4-ish layers of tissue paper or 2 or 3 of newspaper. Remember to leave a hole for the balloon to be taken out of when it dries! Drying will take a couple of days. When it is ready, pop the balloon and remove it through the hole. The hole can be for the light bulb, filling candy, painting the inside, whatever. Patch up the hole with another couple of layers if you want a closed form.
Hope this helps!
