… looking at a piece of leftover baking paper in my hands I had an idea and an old lampshade (Ikea orgel) down the basement.
So I quickly cut out (ahem, OK quick is actually a lie) 144 circles. At least I can handle a pair of compass perfectly again now. Then I took my hot-melt gun and glued the paper circles on to the lampshade in a staggered way like fish scales!
