I will be making my own custom base. I think that it was a Christmas candy tin. It is square, and the skull will fit perfectly from corner to corner. I will drill out the side for the cord and the socket will be glued to the bottom with Gorilla Glue. I will cut out the top with tinsnips, leaving enough of a lip for the skull to rest without shifting. After a coat of black heat resistant paint it should be good to go! I will give you a heads-up and some photos when I get it done!

Yes, I am getting ready to do my own Crystal Head lamp. I am having a difficult time deciding on the color of the lava, however.....blood red? black? white? White lava red liquid? Sigh.....
What will be your color of choice?
