I collect mannequin heads and wanted to try to turn one into a lamp but have never made a lamp before.

The inside of the head is hollow so i think i'll i'd have to do is drill a hole in the top and use the lamp kit.. but my question is do you think it would be safe to keep the wig on her head or would it be a fire hazard?

art should not exist for the sake of itself

I think it'd be fine. I would make the top part of the lamp kit extend just a shade *pun* from the top of her head so it's clear of the hair. I would get a piece of tubing that fits the lamp kit and run the cord through that. Then you can run the cord out of the bottom or side bottom Wink
