Dateline: 21 December 2016
In Part 1 of this series I introduced you to my Bright Betty emergency oil-lamp-in-a-jar. In Part 2 I told you about the materials I used to make my Bright Betty lamps. Now, here is a photo tutorial showing how I made the spiral wick holder and handle...
That last picture just serves to illustrate that the lamp can be easily carried from room to room and, in a room like the bathroom of my house, it will illuminate the area surprisingly well. Unfortunately, the bathroom light is on in the picture. I'm sure I took pictures of the room with the light off, but all of these were taken in 2010 and I can't find the light-off shots. :-(
One last thing... These lamps can also serve a decorative function. Fill them with citronella lamp oil and line them up on the railing of an outdoor deck on a quiet summer evening and they will lend a pleasant ambiance to the area.
This concludes the Bright Betty tutorial. CLICK HERE to go back to Part 1 of this series.
