The future lamp for graffiti artists for sure, purchasable for $50 or a likely better as a (re)make -

This lamp is one of a kind – made from a vintage Krylon can in Portland, Oregon. The off/on switch is the spray nozzle. The arm clips onto any desk surface and swivels for your ultimate viewing experience. Light bulb included.

Spray paint lamp – [via] Link.

    Would I get sued if I made these and sold them on eBay?

  2. Volkemon says:

    @Tim-

    Not unless you post your intention to do so on a widely read blog that the artist is likely to read.

    D’Oh!

    WOW, is it just me? Everytime I post a project that could be dangerous to idiots, I get slammed for my idea. Nobody slamming you for the dangers of cutting into an aresol can, but if you don’t see that coming you shouldn’t own tools. 8^)
    This lamp IS a neat artistic expresson. I’ll bet the Krylon people would love to have them at the home office.

    Damn. I LOVE the comments….

    @Craig (Yeah…I was just looking at your ‘power strip’)

    “WOW, is it just me? Everytime I post a project that could be dangerous to idiots..” and so on….

    What are you responding to? 50% of the posts to date (3FEB08 0332 EST) love your idea outright. One wants to steal it and make money,but is uneasy. One wants to buy one NOW! And I told the one who wants to ‘steal’ it that he/she BUSTED themselves,so maybe don’t try.
    We are your friends, and want to learn with and from you.

    Deep breath. Repeat as needed.Ohm……..:)

    BTW…on the reread…I dont see Craig’s signature anywhere on the link….But THEY did say I would go blind….

    What does 8^ mean?!? (if not typo….)

    These lamps are the brain-child and soul of my best friend…. We got a good laugh upon reading the dim fellow’s comment on ripping them off… It’s all about hip hop. These are just one of many ways him and ourselves as a crew show our love for hip hop. In these days of brainwashed botty shakers it’s nice to see some heads… respect due- 3D
