out the foil from the pattern. At the narrow side (H, height)
add extra 10 mm to use this margin for sticking the parts together.
After fixing, washing and ironing the
silk cloth, stretch it on a frame. The decorated side is pointed downwards
(cf. hint # 1). Then start detaching a few
centimeters of the paper cover at the narrow side (H) of the foil and
stick it on the silk. While you carefully separate the paper with one
hand, the other hand presses the foil against the silk.
Take everything off the frame and cut silk
and foil evenly at the narrow side (H). Prepare the other side for sticking
by gluing a strip of sticking plaster partly on the foil and partly on
the silk jutting out (cf. picture # 1) and
then evenly cut along the sticking plaster.
Take off the paper on the sticking plaster,
fold the silk inwards and stick it together.You want to close the shade
at this point. So you stick another strip of sticking plaster on the folded
strip of silk cloth and along the edge of the foil. When you do so, leave
a margin of 2 centimeters on the top and on the bottom. Do not remove
the paper form the strip yet.
Now put a sticking plaster on the silk
jutting out on the top and bottom margin. Start with it one or two millimeters
on the edge of the foil.
With a conical screen you have to
keep cutting in the adhesive tape, i.e. you cut in the outer side for
the bottom ring and cut in the inner side for the top ring. Then cut both
silk and ribbon at a distance of 8 mm from the edge (cf.
picture # 2).
Start removing the paper from the sticking
plaster at the bottom margin. Place the ring with the bars exactly on
the edge of the foil (cf. hint # 2). Now
fix the silk around the ring (cf. hint # 3).
Proceed likewise with the top ring (cf. picture
Finally you take off the paper from the
sticking plaster at the narrow side and stick the shade together.
All you have to do now, is to place the
shade on the base, insert a light bulb and turn it on.
