In order to glaze a lamp base, you will need the following: glaze, warm water, a sponge, copper carbonate, paintbrush, and sticks. Stir the glaze well. Make sure the base is clean and free of dust. Pour some glaze into a pitcher. Turn the base upside down and dip the mouth of it into the glaze bucket. Allow the excess to drip off. Place 2 sticks on top of the bucket and sit the base on top of the sticks. Now, using the pitcher, pour glaze over the base, allowing the excess to drip into the bucket. Try to coat it evenly, with out missing any areas. If your pots are too hard, then you can heat it up on the stove first, before glazing. Next, you can give it a copper carbonate wash.
