I am working on designing lanterns to match the bouncy ball curtain commission. The way I like to start my projects is to see what has already been created, adjust it to fit my needs and push the design from there to make it my own.
These photos I found in Google images by typing in "lantern." You can find them too, by googling them.
I am working on prototypes and different shapes for the lanterns. I'll post some photos when things get further along.
