Some litho nightlight examples

Postby GEdward » Mon Jul 17, 2017 3:38 pm

I thought I would share some of my litho nightlight works. My goal is to get potential clients to realize that these are just examples and that I can create unique custom lithos from their photo or artwork. I find it much more rewarding to create one off works. The problem I am having is in trying to kindle their imagination. Any suggestions?

Beautiful examples. Thank you for sharing those.
Might I ask what material you are using?

I am using candlestone. One variable that can change the complexion of the work dramatically is the light bulb. I have found that there are a variety of 1/2 watt led offerings. You can get color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 5600 K.

Beautiful work. What bit are you using to carve them?

How are you mounting the litho to the light and what size are they ? Great work my granddaughter would love them

They are 3 1/2 X 4 1/4 edge to edge. I get them from candlestonegifts.com as a kit or as individual components. The panels are made to snap into the nightlight with a press fit so there is no mounting technique so to speak. They come in vertical or horizontal configurations and the plug swivels 360 degrees so they can be oriented in position.

Nice work. I have wanted to lithos for a while but couldn't find material for making them. Thanks for the website information. I'll be ordering some materials soon and trying my hand at creating some.
