What is the lamp base made out of? It looks almost like a tree trunk.

Was the house model hard to put together?

Love the lamp, can I have one?
(Do demonic faces appear in it BTW? ;) )

i like that lamp. I thought it was kind of amusing
how the "spooks" went into the lamp when the
priests exorcised the house. Makes me wonder
about a phone I had once.

It would be nice to get a life size and working light of that lamp. That would definitely be a conversation piece and the thing to put next to the chair where you put insurance salespeople and Jehovah Witnesses.

I have not had a Jehovahs Witness visit in ages, years
in fact. But lately, my disability keeps me at home so much
I am thinking any company would be welcome.

The lamp is made out of clay and unfolded paper clips as a skeleton structure. I formed it then let it air dry overnight, then I painted it brown. I have yet to take a Sharpie and draw the grooves.

The globe is a styro-foam ball I found at the dollar store. I still don't know what I am going to use for the smaller bulbs on the end of the arms.

And yes, the house model was extremely difficult to put together. So many tiny delicate pieces that, if you twisted or pulled too hard, break in half. That's why there is a railing atop of only one porch - I broke the one that was supposed to go on top of the other one. I broke 3 window casings, and unfortunately, they don't provide any spare parts. Applying glue to tiny pieces wasn't much fun either.

Yes, excellent work! I cant remember what the bulbs on the end of the arms looked like. Were they big or small? How about mothballs? I will have to find a picture of the lamp.

Thands Tomspy77 for the pic!

Okay, from looking at the picture mothballs wouldnt work. How about nightlight bulbs or Christmas outdoor bulbs? They are about that size.

I was thinking the same thing... they sell light bulbs for chandelier's that are shaped like the ones on the "arms" of the lamp... could always buy a few of them and cover them in clay, pain over it, the clay would help keep them from being too fragile and breaking easily...

Why not take it a step further and make an actual lamp that you can
plug in? Sure would be a conversation piece and would function:)
