Wow this is really inspiring! I want to do something like this at home. Do you have any suggestions for someone who doesnt have access to kodachromes? I have a regular digital camera. If you have a chance would love to know! Great job!! Gogeous

Hey Teva!  I would do one of two things if I were you - hunt out some old slides at antique stores, or even more easily ebay (there are a TON of old slides up for sale there) and use those, or buy a cheap plastic 35mm camera at a thrift store (I can find them around me for between 50 cents to $2) and some new rolls of slide film.  If you just want to make a lamp or a small project, you can get by with 1 roll of 36 exposure slide film.  You don't need Kodachrome, which Kodak has actually stopped making.  Kodak produces slide film under the names Ektachrome and Elitechrome, and Fuji has a bunch of different slide films available too (Velvia and Provia come to mind).  If you're shooting new slide film in a cheap plastic camera in daytime, I'd stick with 100 or 200 speed film.

If you're making a bigger project, it'll be less expensive to buy a selection of someone else's slides.  There's seriously a huge amount of slides for sale on ebay, and a lot of the auctions wind up going for prices that are reasonable.

Incidentally, Travis and I made another lamp out of film he shot and we had developed at Walmart (I'm anti-Walmart, but they're the only place around me that will send out slide film to be developed - I develop a lot of slide film at home, but I don't have the little cardboard mounts that surround the film).



The interior is just a Ball jar filled with a tiny strand of LED lights.





I posted a lamp tutorial on my blog here: http://goo.gl/83Zz  It's basically what I said in the original post about the lamp, but with some cutting instructions and such.  I hope that's okay to post a link to!

Lufah! i have had this project bookmarked for ever and ever. then a few weeks ago i got a bunch of slides, for free, from an estate. it was an amazing find from an old army photographer who worked and lived in japan for awhile, so the slides are all gorgeous. i'm very excited to finally give this project a go! thanks for the inspiration!

sham, that's awesome!  Post pics when you get it finished!  Smiley

In case anyone was interested, the curtains have been on my door for almost 2 months now, and no sign of fading yet.  Yay!

What an awesome idea - I can't decide which one I like best!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Oh my goodness! This is possibly the neatest idea ever...
I bet the people that took these would never have imagined them being used in this way. Ha. Smiley
The curtains and the lamp shade are both beautiful.
