I started out with this lamp from IKEA:



Then, with some Mod Podge and a bunch of awesome postage stamps of nude art, I made this:

(Click the pictures to get full size images that are not distorted from the automatic resize)

The lamp:

Side 1 (my favorite side):

Side 2:

Side 3:

Side 4:


The worst part was removing the bamboo sticks from the inside of the lamp so that there wouldn't be shadows on the stamps (I left it on the top part).  I think I seperated a little bit of my thumb from the nail because I was ever so carefully sliding my thumb inbetween the bamboo and the rice paper.

Anyway, really simple project but I love love love the way it turned out.

Don't know if you could do that, none of the ones I found were from the US.  I think we're too stuck up to put nudes on our postage stamps, blah.

just out of curiousity : what country (if any) was cool enough to put nudes on their postage stamps?

here's a question:  Do they stay on?  I guess the lamp is pretty low-watt, so you may not get too much heat. . .but with lamps i'm always worried that whatever i put on the lampshade will melt or burst into flames!

Ikea's stuff always makes the best canvases, and I certainly love what you did with yours! Fabulous idea!
