  1. Remove the lampshade and tape off the cords. Basecoat the lamp in Snow White.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Mix Hauser Medium Green, Snow White, and 24K Gold 1:1 with Pouring Medium in separate small cups. Stir thoroughly. (Depending on the size of the lamp, a double batch should be made.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Pour the paint/Pouring Medium mixes into one large cup. Do not stir. For the marble effect, add three to four times more Snow White than the other two colors.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Set the lamp into the aluminum pan and pour the large cup over the lamp, moving the lamp in a circle to cover all sides.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Allow the paint to drip off the lamp naturally. Place it on four to five upside-down cups to dry. Move the lamp every couple of hours so it does not stick to the cups.
