Don’t forget to check out Upholstery Basics: Tool Time to learn more about the tools we’re using today. When both rings are attached, the rings should be flush to the top and bottom edges and tight to the shade paper with no gaps. When choosing fabric for a shade, always hold the fabric up to a window to see how the light shines through the material. If you have a shade that works with your lamp but want to cover it with a different fabric, remove the old shade paper from the rings and follow these steps to make a new shade.
Finding the pattern for conical shades is tricky, so use old shades as a pattern or order a pattern to your specifications from a lampshade supplier.

These Glass Tiles are designed to be used with 48x48mm Square Images to create your own Pendants, we have a selection in stock here Collage Sheets. Transparent clear glass cabochons magnify designs and patterns when placed on top of paper or fabric.
Combining photography with other forms of visual arts has the capacity to produce a very interesting and appealing final piece.
The collage is painted to create a cohesive background that will blend in nicely with the transfer.
For this process you can use a laser photocopy but I prefer using an a photo printed on the standard home inkjet printer.
Though the process involves multiple steps it is actually quite an easy and a fun process to do and the end result is pleasantly surprising.
I tried this, and although it worked a bit, much of my transferred image rubbed off with it. When I rub off the paper with water it looks nice, but after about an hour the transferred image gets very misty and grey.
I was wondering if there was a problem with me letting it dry for about 48 – 72 hours, I started it last night but now i have to leave town and wont be able to finish until i get back.

I am a sucker for lamps, and after years of collecting lamps in every size, shape and color, I found myself with a lot of lamps and no shades.
Cut out a piece of fabric large enough to cover the shade with a few extra inches around the edge. Determine how you’d like the pattern centered on the shade and use the square and yardstick to draw the left and bottom edges of the shade.
Continue peeling and sticking a few inches at a time until the styrene is completely attached.
Lay the lampshade rings on the table and ensure that the rings lay flat to the tabletop all the way around.


When the shade is attached all the way around the top, place the shade (top down) on the table and attach the bottom ring to the shade all the way around. With a pencil, mark the edge of the seam at the top and bottom of the shade and make a mark to indicate which side is the top. Remove the bulldog clips from the shade and lay the shade on the table with the fabric facing up. Place a bulldog clip at the top and bottom of the connection and lay weights on top of the seam on the inside of the shade.
When the seam is secure and the glue has dried, place the shade on the table with the bottom edge up.
Place a bulldog clip on the seam of the shade and place the back of the bottom ring on top of the clip to prevent it from falling into the shade. When the bottom is attached all the way around, flip the shade over and place the top ring inside the shade.
Carefully pull the top ring up without pulling it out of the shade and use the bulldog clips to attach it to the top edge of the shade. If you’re having trouble getting them to fit, check that the top ring is on the top side of the shade and make sure there are no gaps between the shade and rings. Use the small paint brush to apply glue to the bottom half of the paper tape (only a few inches to start). Continue gluing all the way around, cutting the end of the tape even with the seam in the shade. Apply glue to the top half of the paper tape and use your fingers to fold the tape around the rings to the inside of the shade.
Follow steps 8–12 from Coil Seat Finale to make bias tape out of the fabric of your choice. After you’ve cut out and seamed (if necessary) your bias tape, iron it in half lengthwise. When the flaps are glued down, place glue on the backside of the trim and glue it to the seam of the shade.
For the trim around the top of the shade, start by cutting the end (with fabric completely folded) at a 45-degree angle. When you get back to where you started, fold the trim in half and cut it at a 45-degree angle opposite of step 29. Thicker fabrics can prevent light from passing through, causing an undesirable look when illuminated. Our goal is to create a safe space where everyone (commenters, subjects of posts and moderators) feels comfortable to speak. Therefore blending mixed media and image transfer, two methods that are often done independently, is probably the ultimate union and can generate some exciting results.
Some transferred images are so misty (not sure if this is the right word) they become unrecognizable. I finally did my first photo transfer to canvas last night and I’m super happy with the results.


The success (or failure) of a table lamp has as much to do with the shade as it does the base, yet there are surprisingly few options when it comes to ready-made shades. Use the edge of the table to bend the rings, where needed, to get them straight and flat to the table. With the bottom of the shade against your body, work your way around, attaching the shade to the top ring with bulldog clips. Lay a pencil flat on the table and mark a line all the way around the top and bottom edges of the shade. Start just beyond the seam with the bottom edge lined up with the line from step 18 and press the paper tape to the top edge of the shade. Instead of lining up the bottom edge of the trim with the bottom edge of the paper tape, place the trim so that the middle rests on the top edge of the shade. Please treat others the way you would like to be treated and be willing to take responsibility for the impact your words may have on others. Adhere paper or fabric to the flat side of the cabochon using Mod Podge or clear-drying adhesives.
The tip to help seal it with Fixative is something I had been wondering about, but no one addressed it.
This month on Upholstery Basics, we’ll make a custom drum shade to inspire your next bright idea. Peel off the first few inches of paper covering the sticky side, line up the bottom and left edges with the lines from step 4 and stick the shade paper to the fabric. When you get to the end of one side, go back to the middle and work around in the other direction. This will be the trim for the lampshade, so you’ll need enough to cover the seam and go around the top and bottom edges of the lampshade. Disagreement, differences of opinion and heated discussion are welcome, but comments that do not seek to have a mature and constructive dialogue will not be published.
Slip the front of the ring just inside the shade and use the bulldog clips to hold it in place.
I found that the best way to get rid of those last bits of white paper was to spray it again and rub lightly with super fine grit sandpaper.
When the front half of the shade is attached, remove the bulldog clip at the seam and attach the back half of the shade with bulldog clips.
