These acid-etched, stainless steel, oil lamp shadow projectors look pretty neat, you light them and they cast a shadow from a cut shape – I’m thinking of remaking these using the 9V LED battery project and cutting some metal, not sure what the shape(s) will be and what will be the best/cheaperst way to do it yet, but we’ll see what happens! – [via] – Link.

    One of the things I like the most about shadow lamps is the pretty/creepy flickering effect the flame gives the shadow, which would be hard to duplicate with an LED, I think…

    Crafty Chica has a tutorial on making super cheap mason jar luminarias–they could be adapted to shadow lamps fairly easily, I think.
