Thrift store lamp,takes a teardrop 60 watt bulb. Lampshade I already had-I meticulously painted my daughter's ball lamp to be a Bob-omb lamp, then found out the lamp no longer worked! So, I salvaged the lampshade. Grr.
Anyway! Shade painted black, Between the small bulb and the painted shade, this is not a light up a dark room or do homework by it lamp. But it looks cool. The Superman pages were from a beat up children's book. Glued down, and the whole thing covered with brush on clear sealer. The lamp was originally a tired brassy color and maroon, I painted it black and gold.

Do kids even know what a phone booth is anymore? Up,Up,and Away!

Clark Kent hears a cry for help! Oh no, a bank robbery!

Time to rip off the shirt and take to the sky! And what kind of white shirt does he have that the bright blue and red long johns don't show through? Does he hid his cape under that shirt too?

Does he wear those red boots to the Daily Planet?

Cowed by his super might as well as his fashion sense,the bank robbers wisely surrender.

One more pic.


The next lamp,I bite the bullet and go out and make color photocopies of my comic pages. I've found out that nothing keeps the printing on the reverse of the page from showing through-not gluing it to white paper, or black paper, or painting the back,or brushing on a base coat of mod podge/white glue. Here, with the shade itself black, it works fine-plus, these aren't thin comic book pages, but pages from a battered book.

It might not be functional, but what a cool accent lamp!
