Hi all, I recently bought a few used tools from a lady who made all sorts of stained glass lampshade, I have not yet received the tools but in the lot there are:
1) an adjustable lamp form holder.
2)Rigid plastic lamp shade form. 15 1/4 by 9 1/2 unused.
3)Rigid plastic lamp shade form 16 1/2 by 9 used to make Tiffany waterlily lamp .
4)Styrofoam form 16 1/2 by 8 made Tiffany poppy lamp and the pattern is still taped to it .
The pictures she sent me of these form came with a Worden catalogue next to them so I assume the forms were made/sold through worden.
My question is, where do I find the proper patterns to use with these forms? what is the difference in using a rigid plastic form than a Styrofoam ? is one preferred over the other?
and lastly a totally newbie question:
Where would I find a step by step tutorial on making lampshades using form/molds?
I would appreciate and welcome your thoughts, comments and any help I could get.
