I picked up a couple of amber globes from Warren at the convention with the intention of trying something new with one of the globes.  I wanted to see what a frosted amber globe might look like.  And of course, I decided to add some stars to the globe!
Before
[IMG-0540]

I cleaned the inside and wiped it down with alcohol before applying the stars.

I had a coworker sandblast the inside of the globe.  Since the amber is throughout the glass, the amber remained visible.  I would imagine it might be a different story if one were to sandblast the outside of the globe.

After

I'm pretty happy with the results.  Thanks for looking!
Ok, now you can laugh!  ÃƒÂ°Ã…¸ËœÂ

Very cool.  Those globes are inexpensive enough to get creative and experiment with a bit.

I wouldn't have thought to frost an amber globe.  That looks really good.

Thanks for the comments.  Since I have another regular amber globe for my CL1, I think I’ll have the second No Bug globe frosted internally with no decorations.  One can never have too many colored globes!

Surprised the stickers held up to the sand blasting. 

I really like it. Be cool to find some lantern stickers and put in there.

I've always wanted to frost an amber inverted globe.

I have done several of these with stickers on the inside and I always wipe down the glass with alcohol just prior to applying the stickers.  I’m surprised as well that the stickers held tight.

Uh, confession time, Jeff!  99% of the time I remove the vent and globe when lighting lanterns.  Kind of OCD when it come to all things sooty!  Yes, I’ll admit it, a lighter and propane torch are my friends.☺️

I too remove the globe before lighting up except on my kero with a preheat cup.  It's an especially good idea to remove the globe when starting if you have a frosted globe.  I always inspect mantles before lighting up since I have this thing about not wanting to scorch a globe, and with a frosted, you need to remove it for inspection.
