I don’t think you need anything too fancy. An articulating desk lamp with a strong bulb (at least 1,500 lumens) should go a long way. This paired with a $10 LED bulb is what I use and it helps me a lot. Just be aware that this model is rather cheaply made and you pretty much need to bolt it into your desk because the clamp it comes with won’t keep it stable.

Yeah I normally have been doing all my tiny detail witha 10/0 Rosemary and Co but I think I’m going to have to get something a bit smaller, I just can’t get the details like I want. Do you use any kind of magnifying light like this?


Sorry I’m just not starting to really work on my detail work and finding it a bit rough so looking for all the help I can get.

Here is some shots of my set. I’ve having a hard time getting stuff as smooth as as I want it as well and I’m not sure if I’m just not layering correctly or what.


First attempt at learning the craft so I’m actually really happy how they are turning out considering I’ve never done anything like this before, but clearly the detail is no where near your level.
