These Beautiful Little Night Lights are Amazing! The Silk s are painted, and the frame made, by Cynthia Ann McDonald.
We have just Started this lovely Line of Lights and hope to be adding10 a week, and will also be taking them to the Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market each weekend.
If you are thinking of something special, a unique design or subject matter, just Contact us, We Love Custom Orders!!!!
Note:
These Night lights have an array of colors. The photos below are with and with out a flash in the day, and what it looks like at night. Amazing!!!

We take Basic Night Light Fixtures,
hand make our frames, sew Silk
onto the frame, Paint, then Steam.
Our Fixtures are LED, and Bulb.
Some are toggle switch, and
some are light sensitive: they
turn off in the daylight.

This is the way I steam, A big Steam pot for
canning, that has about 2.5 inches of water in
it, and a Veggie Steamer to keep the bundle up.
I wrap them all in paper first, then a lose layer of
foil to protect it from any spatters, or dripping
water. It seems to work just fine, even on Scarves.

We cover the top with Towels so it absorbs
moisture, then I put a THICK piece of plywood,
and a large brick for weight. We are trying to
keep it tight so the pressure can build. Then I top
it off with my heavy Cast Iron Skillet for good Luck!

Sugar Skull Night Lights
Living in the South West we have a large Hispanic Community, and I am always learning more about the culture, for example the 'Day of the Dead', and 'Sugar Skulls' We paint a lot of Sugar Skulls in Henna at our Festivals,
a popular choice, so I thought I would create some 'Hand painted Silk Sugar Skull Night Lights', especially since the fall is coming, and October is almost here, and Novembers 'Day of the Dead'.
