Lamp Designing and Pattern Making Methods
  1. Pattern Shell: Use 3 mil drafting film to make a pattern shell covering ONE REPEAT of the design. Cut strips the width of the grid strips and attach them together with magic tape. Draw the design and trace repeats around the form.  (To trace, draw pattern on back side using soft lead pencil, then burnish.)  Cut the pattern shell apart to make paper patterns.
  2. Draw, Mark and Trace: Draw one repeat of your lamp design on the blue grid (cover the printed grid with magic tape for easy erasing). Make one set of paper patterns to cut the glass. Use the horizontal and vertical lines on the grid, mark patterns, and place and trace each pattern piece around the form.
  3. Drafting Film Strips: Use 3 mil drafting film and fashion strips the same width as the blue grid but make them the same length as one repeat of your design. Create your design and make the paper patterns. Trace the pattern repeats by moving the strips one at a time around the form.
  4. Traditional Tiffany style lamps were made in repeated designs. Use the prepared grid and incorporate them into any width, shape, or repeat you desire.
  5. Displaying your Lamp: This shade was designed to be used with a lamp base or as a hanging lamp shade.
