‘Star Wars’ Fan Turned Popular IKEA Lamp Into Realistic Death Star.
Once you're done applying all the masking tape to your ball and have become satisfied with the pattern, you're going to paint over the entire lamp in a darker grey paint. You can use black but it may be too dark as a contrast.
Here, they mixed acrylic paint and chalk paint to give the lamp an overall matte finish instead of a glossy one.
You can either paint the entire ball completely or paint it in parts, it'll come out great no matter which way you choose. But remember to press down on the paint prior to actually painting!
This is what it should look like after the darker paint has dried a little and you remove the masking tape.
Don't worry if you have some slightly uneven lines, the end result will still look great! Besides, the Death Star is supposed to have a lot of little bits and dots.
Wait for your new mini Death Star to completely dry before hanging it up! We suggest hanging it over a bed so that it's the first thing you see when waking up and the last when going to sleep.
The best part is when you plug the lamp in so that there's a glowing light from within shining through the edges!
To see the Death Star lamp in action, watch the short clip below! It's nothing short of epic.
