What's so special about washable paper fabric which is used to handcraft the Lapu Lapu, Medusa, Goldfish, Sea Turtle and other pre-assembled lamps?

The lampshades are made of kraft paper fabric, also known as washable paper. The material looks and feels like watercolour paper but at the same time is strong and tear-resistant, hard-wearing and flexible. It is dimensionally stable and doesn't shrink or stretch.
It is made of natural cellulose fibres, a green and renewable resource that can be easily recycled. It can be spot cleaned with mild detergent or water.

What comes with Vasili Lights' DIY Papercraft Set?
Each set includes pre-cut paper templates, which you assemble into the actual 3D paper lampshade. Those templates are packed into a solid cardboard envelope and sent to you together with an illustrated step-by-step assembly guide. Also take a look at the how-to video showing how to make your paper lamp. Cord set and bulb are not included.
The assembled lampshade fits around standard lightbulbs. You can easily attach it to a pendant light fitting which you have in your house.

How long does it take to assemble my Paper Lamp?
Few hours. Depends on your skills and how much of a perfectionist you are. 
Maybe it will take longer if you take a break to move your body or shift your attention sometimes but it will help you enjoy the process. See it as a way to escape stressful everyday moments. Fall in love with the process and the results will come.

What tools do I need?
Most of the work has been done. The parts have been pre-cut. The folding lines are perforated. Here's the cool piece. Just fold along the lines and glue the parts together. All you will need for successful assembly is a glue. Optionally you can order our UHU Glue. Have fun!

What type of bulb should I use?
Our lampshades are for use with a LED light bulb only.
