This is the rather high-poly model of a Japanese Garden Lantern I modeled for my Fiance. It is ready for use with a 5mm LED (inserted from the bottom). This model is left white intentionally so the owner can paint it as he/she sees fit - but the inspiration for this lamp was solid grey stone.
More pictures and stuff coming soon (I've ordered one and will photograph it when it arrives, as well as paint it (and maybe even stick an LED in there!)).
This was originally designed to be ready for use with a 5mm LED light (my goal was to allow DIY'ers looking for an easy, but rewarding project the option to paint one of these, guy one of those little electric tea-light candles, and combine the two to be rewarded with awesomeness.
Unforutnately, during the process of uploading to the site, my scale was altered, and I'm still VERY new at this so I don't know how to get it back to my original dimensions _OR_ return the hole I'd cut out in it for the LED to be inserted.
This is my first upload to this site, so please don't be too critical of it - I'm still learning :)

This is a MOUNTLESS MODEL - meaning hobbyists can glue or otherwise mount it to the ring, earring, necklace, pen, etc of their choice. It's 2cm in diameter and available in full color sandstone in case you don't feel like painting your own :)
This is the color version of another one of my Japanese Lantern Models. While this is not ready for us with a 5mm LED, hobbyists with a drill should have no problem making this a reality, and there should be ample room in the base for standard cell watch batteries.
"Neat" was the thought upon both conceiving the idea, as well as completing it. Just "Neat". Hopefully someone will find this and think "Oh, this will be perfect for-" a gift, their desk, etc, etc. _IMPORTANT_NOTE:_ I've made the default material on this the Full Color Sandstone, just in case anyone wants to get one without no painting required, but if you are looking to customize your colors, I would personally suggest buyers to go with one of the ceramic materials and paint there own.
Sometimes I think to myself, "You know what'd be cool?" - this is usually followed by an hour or more of fiddling around in Blender, Photoshop, or good old pencil and paper to try and make my random thought as tangible as possible.
Now, the ability to physically manifest something that was not too long ago just a thought - is pretty darn neat.
