Last time, I posted what the lamp base looked like before it was fired and with color. Thankfully, the clay fired without any problems and I was ready for painting. First, I watered down some house paint as a gesso and painted all the surfaces to seal them. Next, I used acrylic paints (I borrowed my daughter’s paints) and mixed the colors to match the original. Then I sprayed it with a glossy clear coat and glued some felt to the bottom so it wouldn’t scratch. Finally, I attached the lamp hardware and lampshade and delivered it to the happy customer!
This picture shows my replica on the left and the original on the right….
