Paper Illuminated: 15 Projects for Making Handcrafted Luminaria, Lanterns, Screens, Lamp Shades and Window Treatments
A candle, a light bulb, or natural daylight illuminating a translucent sheet of paper can create surprises by casting a shadow through holes onto another surface, illuminating a subtle pattern in the paper, or showing off a batiked design. As the popularity of handmade paper grows, this unique book takes the paper crafter beyond stationery, cards, and journals to innovative designs for using colored and textured paper to make striking three-dimensional home furnishings: luminaria, lanterns, room divider screens, sconces, lampshades, nightlights, window shades, and more.
This book includes inspiring full-color photographs of the projects, as well as the works of a variety of talented paper artists. Line drawings illustrate the step-by-step instructions. Paper decorative techniques include piercing, layering, collage, crayon batiking, fold and dye, marbling, nature printing, rubber stamping, stenciling, embossing, and weaving. Also included is easy-to-understand information on lamp basics and safety, wiring and rewiring lamps, and creating interesting lamp bases.
