Very nice Shoiji lamps! I’m thinking of building one of these myself, and your blog is going to be a great help!

Sergio,

I bought the rice paper on Amazon … there are a lot of suppliers. I just looked up Shoiji paper.

I see a lot of Thai Marbled paper that is quite colorful as well … I may try that next time.

Thanks
