Steampunk lamps and accessories often combine copper and brass items with futuristic details. The Steampunk Aesthetic is a combination of science fiction special way, Victorian fashion and industrial age functionality. You can make a relatively simple steampunk lamp using metal pipes, odd-shaped light bulbs and a swag lamp kit available on hardware and lighting stores.Things you need archive 1-inch diameter copper and brass pipes.
Instructions to make steampunk lamps, connect pipes to a candelabra form with one or two tubes adjusted vertically to hold light bulbs and a solid base constructed from horizontal tubes to keep the lamp upright and steady. Alternatively, use a wooden block or box as a base and glue pipe fittings to it using epoxy. Use the imagination to connect the pipes as you wish, as long as it is free standing and have at least one vertical tube with an open end in place a light socket. Run the cord from the lozenge lamp set through the pipes so that the bulb connector rests on one of the vertical pipe openings and the line passes through the body of the lamp and with the base. Load the bulb outlet to the vertical tube opening, using a solder bolt. Repeat the entire process as many light sockets as you wish in the lamp.
Next steps to make steampunk lamps, turn a 60 watt light bulb into each of the bulb socket outlets. Choose an unusual bulb with visible coils and filaments to be true to the steampunk aesthetic. Squirrel Cage Bulbs are a good option. Slide or pack copper or brass coils over light bulbs for decoration. If you use a wooden block as a base, with screws or glue brass, copper or silver burnished details to make faux switches and accents. Plug the lamp into an electrical outlet and turn on the bulb socket switch to activate the lamp. For best results, plug the lamp into an electrical outlet that is connected to a dimmer for low intensity lighting.
