The Oyule lamp is an oil lamp made of light bulbs from the artist Sergio Silva, who sells them for $650. I agree that it does look nice, but the materials only cost about $10: Paraffin oil A wick Two burned out light bulbs A piece of wood Black gloss paint Twelve neodymium magnets (8 small cylindrical magnets, two large cylindrical magnets, two spherical magnets) Epoxy

the differences are listed on the pictures. Step 1Hollowing The Bulbs i       .My version of this lamp is slightly cheaper than the original though.

(as opposed to breaking the glass off) First remove the small piece of metal on the glass part of the base. the other is the part that's threaded like a screw) With an X-Acto knife or box cutter carefully pry the base away from the glass. using a screwdriver carefully break the glass holding the filament. (the small piece of metal is one of the electrical contacts. Clean up the sharp edges as best you can. Some are attached better than others. which means the entire base must be removed. For this lamp to look nice the small black piece of glass on the base of the bulb must remain intact. but nothing else. Step 2Wicks i   . it is attached by some sort of adhesive. Next. it will help to desolder it from the wire inside. and are more difficult to separate.

if so you will need to file the hole to make it larger. make sure that the wick does not have a wire center and is made for an oil lamp.) You may discover that the hole in the base is not large enough for the correct diameter wick. (If the wick is too thin it will not soak up the oil fast enough for a continuous burn. Go to a local craft store and buy a wick. Depending on the width of the wick you may have to double it like I did. (Attempting to drill it would most likely end with a broken base) Step 3Reattaching The Base i   .

I did the same. On the glass part of the bulb where base attaches to there are two small indentations which provide enough space for a small neodymium magnet to be attached to the inside of the base. I felt it needed to be more secure so I attached it with magnets. *I tried to do this with super glue. I attached a 1/16in thick magnet with a diameter of 3/16in to each side of the base using epoxy. but it melted. where the indentations are. Step 4Creating the Base for the Lamp i   . and though it would probably stay on because of its weight. On the inside of the bulb.  The base must be removable to allow refueling.

(its easier to look at the picture than figure out the explanation) Because a drill creates a cylindrical hole.75 X 5. Paint with black gloss paint (or any other color) and allow to dry. because the magnets are very difficult to remove. drill holes for the magnets that will hold your bulbs on. You can put these wherever you want but I separated my piece of wood into four quarters and put the magnets in the center of two diagonally opposite quarters.       » The base of the lamp was made from a 0. edges. note: To clean the paintbrush you used for the sanding sealer. but for the bulbs I was using I felt this was a good size. Step 5Finish It! .5 X 24 inch piece of wood. allow it to dry. You can really use any size you want. and corners to smooth out and round the piece of wood. Apply a layer of sanding sealer. cylindrical magnets look the best. and sand again with a very fine grain of sand paper. Now sand the surfaces. and make sure the holes are the right depth. use mineral spirits (turpentine) not water. After cutting.

i       All that's left to do is: Place the spherical magnet in the bulb Fill it with oil .

and attach them to the wooden base. .Because of the magnets that hold the base of the bulb on. place the lid (base of the bulb) on. To do so easily place a straw in the bulb. Do not pick up the lamp while the candles are lit. getting the spherical magnet in can be difficult. and push with a skewer. even when they aren't be careful because the light bulbs rotate very freely. Use a funnel to fill your bulbs. put the magnet in it.
