      Yeah, sorry about that, I´ve been really busy. I´ll be making the how to when I get some free time. Materials are quite simple. The lamp is actually 2 lamps, one´s where the bulb goes, along with the wooden sticks, and the other part is the flexible arm. The clamp has been added later (the original clamp on the arm broke). Both the white and black wires are from those lamps.
      The black fabric is called 'silver', it is used to make light jackets and windstoppers (it´s got a color front and a silver back, I chose black for this project) The diffuser screen is made out of a silk-like fabric, synthetic not cotton (polyester I guess).
      The base for the flashgun is molded in styrofoam, covered in a two-part epoxy mix and painted black with permanent marker. I was going to use something better but I was in a hurry to finish it.
