Old Experiments

Clearing out the studio the other day an I encountered this remnent of an old experiment... a what if of sorts.

what if I take a piece of itajime dyed rice paper and coat it with acrylic resin?

I just never forsaw that it would become transparent!

I did a few of these but I think this is the only one that I still have. I was unsure of what to do with them and leery of the health risks associated with resins.

I still think that totally cool lampshades and lighting fixtures could be made with it but I don't really have the skills to make the nessesary armatures.

Who knows I may go back to it someday...
