How to make an oil lamp with a can.

Inflate the balloon or piñata and, with the help of a glass and a marker, circle the knot.

Cover the balloon with vinyl glue diluted in equal proportion with water, or with a paste that you have prepared with water and flour. You can directly submerge it, if you are using a small balloon, or do it with a brush part by part.With the help of a brush, cover the entire globe with pieces of kitchen paper. Place all the queue you need. This technique is called “cartapesta”. Crush the paper well with the brush to remove any marks or roughness. Make three layers. That will be enough to make it resistant but not opaque.
