What You Need

  • Colorful lamp base
  • Glass cleaner
  • Oil-base paint marker
  • Acrylic sealer

Step 1

Clean your lamp base of all dust and oils, then use a paint pen to draw any details you like. Doodle top to bottom to avoid smudging.

Step 2

When dry, seal the look with an acrylic finishing spray.
