hello everyone, welcome to my tutorial! i am
here with illusion lamp which is made up with paper.
which creates illusions with colours and it's unique
patterns. it lights up whole room with shadows and
colours. i got inspired from old Indian architecture
with mirrors, which creates reflections. isn't it feel
magical if you have colourful shadows all over the
walls an floor of your room? and let me share a secret
that it's a great stress relief as well, and the reason is
the illusion which it creates and by stress relief i
meant about the colours because from the ages. colours are one of the reasons of our happiness and
shadows adds more magic to it. magic of illusions.
you can use them for parties and when you are
working and you don't need too much colours you can
put it on your desk where enough light enters and you
will get small but beautiful shadows, which will also
not disturbing while you are working. as i love
working with paper and especially cutting complex
things, so i has made this cuttings with cutter but for those who are not very
good at cutting they can go for lesser cutting. i had made this in a cube but you can
try it with other shapes as well. so try what you
like and every time you will come up with different
thing. you can play with shapes and designs as much
as you can. if you have curiosity and patience i can
assure you that you will come with a master piece, which is worth using your time. as it's of paper its
delicate but not so flimsy. if you
like it don't forget to give your valuable vote.so let's make it and gift it to mom this Mother's day. making gifts by your own is more valuable than buying.make with love and i am sure she will love it's magical effects and colours. so let's get started!!!!!
Step 1:LET'S MAKE A CUBE
take a paper thickness of 1 to 2 mm.
do the surface development of cube and cut it out.
cube size: 15cm.15 cm
Step 2:CUTTING PAPER WITH SHARPE CUTTER
till now you have a piece of surface development of cube in which you have to make designs of your choice except a square which will be on the top of cube.
on the five sides you have to cut the designs which you have made. ( if u are not good at cutting then go for lesser cutting).
Step 3:USING COLOURFUL PAPERS
now on the back side of your cut piece stick the transparent colourful papers with the help of glue tape.
use colours which you like.
i am using yellow and three primary colours.
do this with all the 5 sides of cube.
flip it and you will see the carvings on front and colour papers on back.
Step 4:STICKING CUBE
stick all 5 sides of cube with glue.
you will see the colour papers inside of cube and it will create shadows and colours when you will pass the light.
Step 5:BULB FITTING
now on the 6th side of the cube(top side) you have to make a circle and cut it. size of the circle will be according to your bulb holder, so it can fit into the circle and then put the bulb in the holder.
you can use other battery operated lights too if you are not comfortable with holder and bulb.
light should be enough powerful that it can create shadows properly.
Step 6:FINAL STEP
with the help of string hang it in your room or any place you want, and let the light lit up and here your magic is.
you will see the colours and shadows all over the room.
if you don't want to use it with electricity then you can put it on your desk where enough light source enters your room, and you will get small but mesmerising shadows on your desk.
best part of this is you will get different shadow on different time of day if you use day light.
i hope you love it.
