Got a torch lamp that needs a personal touch? You can make an interesting lampshade just by using your lampshade as a sketch pad!

Materials:
1 plastic lampshade
1 black permanent marker
1 piece of paper
scotch tape
scissors
old magazines

Directions:
Look in old magazines for an image that fits the size of your lampshade. You might instead be inspired to use one of your own photos. Test the permanent marker on the bottom of the shade. This marker appears auburn because the plastic tests the limits of the permanent marker. I almost thought the surface was too slick to draw but the marker took on a voluptous reddish hue.

I used the sunlit window as a light table by taping the image and my paper to the glass. I traced her features on my paper.

I cropped my piece of paper with scissors and tucked the image inside the lampshade.

I carefully traced her facial features. I filled her hair with broad stokes.
