Melodi for the birds

Materials: Melodi Lamp, shape print out, stencil sheets, stencil knife, thin brush, acrylic paint, tape

Description: When I bought this lamp, I already knew it was in for some changes. I didn’t know exactly what I’d be doing, but then a light bulb went off (pun intended): stenciling!

I found the images that I wanted online, adjusted the sizes and printed them. The next step was to cut out stencils from the printed shapes. Using the inside of the stencil cut out, I used painter’s tape to secure the shapes to the inside of the lamp. I then used acrylic paint and a thin brush to paint in the outline.
