Lava lamps are quite a unique type of lighting, usually consisting of a cone-shaped base that houses a light bulb. This light bulb heats up a glass teardrop-shaped container which sits above it. Inside the container is the ’lava’, which usually consists of paraffin wax, mineral oil, and carbon tetrachloride. When the lava is heated, it floats up in the alcohol solution, emulating lava. When the light is shut off, the lava will sink back to the bottom and harden until the next use.
Decide whether you will use and decorate existing shades or whether you will make new ones from scratch. If making new ones, work out what size of shade you need by measuring the existing shades or by experimenting with creating paper shades of various standard size shades to see which size would work well. Look for frames in the right size in your local craft shop or purchase online. Decide what you will use to cover your lamp shades. This might be something simple like wallpaper or wrapping paper in an interesting design or a fabric you love. You may also decide to cover your shades in patterned or plain fabric. Remember that plain lamp shades cam always be embellished.
