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...
