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.

Ken.
