  • Silicone.
  • Broken glasses.
  • Battery-powered electrical installation.

Our Process

    I loved this lamp, I've been looking for something easy to make with glass for a long time. but I have a doubt, the silicone detaches itself from the polystyrene ball? …. thank you very much in advance 🙂

    Hi how are things? Beautiful lamp. I MADE a laptop with balls, I glued them with hot silicone and they are coming off. What can I do? Could it be that cold silicone is better?
