Hello everyone for SummersWithFevicryl I'm making an LED lamp from old photo frame and a cardboard box.
How To Do it Yourself
First of all take your old photo frame which is recyclable and take out the glass and clean it wipe. My frame wasn't of glass material it was acrylic but glass works too as long as it's clear (You can also use an old wall clock's glass if you don't have waste photo frame)
Now choose the stencil design of your choice. I decided to draw a dolphin so you can draw the same or expirement with different stencil designs.
Take the glass & put black tape on all four side to make a outline, & cut a very small piece of the sandpaper and gently start rubbing it on the outter side you are basically engraving without any engraveing cream or tool! Cool, right? Also engraving with sandpaper is very fast and easy and you can free hand engrave anything at home without any difficulties.
Now put the dolphin stencil design under the glass and gently rub the sandpaper to make the dolphin standout more make sure to not rub very hard or fast else you will ruin your design and glass might get scratches and we don't want that.
After that remove the tape and wipe the glass with wet tissue paper and now comes the very important part.
Take your fevicryl 3Dgolden outliner and outline the dolphin do not skip it it's very important to outline using fevicryl 3D outliner.
Outliner everything as shown in the picture and let it dry for an hour.
Meanwhile take the cardboard box of your choice and measure your glass and cut in the middle as you can see in the picture and paint it with fevicryl soft pearl brown acrylic colour and let it dry.
Since my box is very light and my glass is comparatively heavier so I'm going to make my box a little heavier by making a stand of Fevicryl Shilpkar.
Take Fevicryl Shilpkar and mix the ingredients as explained on the packaging and make long roll untill you get the same size as your frame put your frame on it push a little to make a shallow stand leave it dry for at least an hour or two.
As I don't need the full LED strip so I have Cut it from the middle where the scissors mark was. Please cut the led strip only where you see the scissors mark otherwise you might end up cutting the circuit and light will go to waste so take help if needed Now I got mine both cut and solderd with a help of soldering iron.
As shown in the picture remove LED Strip sticky tape side and put it in the Fevicryl Shilpkar stand Put the light adapter in the cardboard box and leave the wire out for connection take your glass and put in in the middle of the box exactly on the top of the LED light strip and close the box leave out the yellow wire for connection.
And you are done! Voila!
Switch the light on and see your beautiful creation! The lamp looks so beautiful in the night and aswell as in the day because of fevicryl golden 3D Outliner shines a lot and it really helps the design stand out more.
