I’ve never been happy with the double bronto lamp that I made about a year ago, so I decided that one beast is enough and linked it to my “waver” mechanism.
And because I was out of my usual foliage-print shades, I used a plain linen shade and draped it with plastic ivy from the local craft store. It wasn’t until I fired it up that I watched the bronto move through the leaves as it munched—EUREKA !!! I hadn’t considered that possibility.
Nothing earth-shaking like discovering the formula for world peace, but the idea that a moving figure can interact with its background is another trick that I can add to my bag.
The foliage might need some pruning, but for now I’ll let it be.
