Gothic Lithophane Lamp
I wanted to make my Mom a Litophane lamp for Christmas so I looked on thingiverse but none of them were just right so I design my own. I decided to go with a Gothic style design, something really easy to use the dry brush technique on. I designed this version to use components that can easily be purchased from Amazon. I have listed the required parts below and have provide detailed instructions on how to make your own custom Lithophane panels In the video.
See the settings video for the instructions and settings required to make your own custom lithophane panels for this frame. Supports are not required for the base and the clamp but the top does require support for the center overhang.
Paint and assembly Instructions:
I will create a video shortly highlighting how I painted and assembled it in more detail. You can subscribe to my youtube channel if you would like to receive a notification when it comes out.
All the required components are detailed below. The design requires 3 heat-set thread inserts to hold the bulb base and the strain relief for the cord. They are installed with a soldering iron and the tips linked below. I painted mine with flat black then used the dry brush technique with some metallic gold acrylic.
