DCC Showman multi-coloured bulbs

Post  Brian M on Tue 21 Jan 2014, 11:13 am

Hi All,

I am trying to source a series of different coloured bulbs for the showman canopy. Can anybody point me to a good source?

Thanks in anticipation,

Brian M

Hi Brian,
Have you thought about painting your existing bulbs ? I have done mine with Pebeo vitrea 160 glass paint and the results are very good. You should be able to obtain it from a good craft supplier or purchase from an online supplier

Hi Colin,

I never thought of that?

Thanks for the tip, it may even be cheaper than buying them Smile

All the best,

Brian

I'll second that, painting lamps gives very good results, however remember the not to over fire the lamps or you can risk melting the solder connections in the holder, that's if your using screw-in's, otherwise I have painted several hundred lamps like this (or dipped them as it does give a better finish than brush)

Happy to get quotes for coloured bulbs if enough people want them. I'll probably be able to get them for around a third cheaper than buying them off the shelf in small quantities.

Just let me know what colours and how many you'd want and I'll ask my sources.
