Space Invaders Lamp by LoDuris Space Invaders Lamp by LoDuris
This was a birthday gift for a very good and very special friend of mine. The swag lamp itself is very simple compared to my other lamp builds but I really like it. The space invaders are made of a thinner tissue so light can spill through it better. As always I used several coats of a spray lacquer to help reinforce the paper. The paper pieces started as 5cm square sheets and always I used the Sonobe fold for each piece.

You're a great person and a good artist. Your Space Attackers lamp is the best thing I've seen on dA for a long time. I think you're the reason dA isn't totally in the shitter. Your camera angles are are very inventive and you keep up your good work and you're gonna make the whole internet a better place.

ps you're a real super sand legend.

Haha no judging here. I agree the perspective throws you off at first into thinking it's huge.

I love seeing your origami creations, this turned out great~ :)

What brand of lacquer do you use, if it's alright to ask?
Reply
:iconloduris:
LoDuris Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
Haha thanks Le. I don't use anything special. It's just the spray lacquer you can find at Michael's for like $12. I use the gloss to give it shine and I usually apply about 3-4 coats. I find applying it in warmer weather makes it best because of how fast it will dry. You don't have to worry about any running of the lacquer as well.

xHylianKnightx Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
Awesome, thanks so much for the info~! :D

Michael's makes me cry inside with their prices... so much great things in one store... so overly priced... I will check this lacquer, and wait for their sales, haha.

Keep up the great work! :)
