I cut circles from a red paint chip. Then I punched a hole in the middle and added a grommet in the center. I broke one of my LED lights while fooling with these. I hope I can fix it?
The inside is painted with white pearl paint. I tried to weather the outside a bit. I'll paint them with clear gloss once I have them looking right.
The lanterns are about 2cm in diameter. I found the measurements of a real lantern and used the Art of Miniatures calculator to find the 1:12 scale size. I love that calculator! You can find it on the sidebar if you need one.
Hope you have a happy day!
