    I am sorry I am not on much anymore .Well I took a brown paper lunch bag and cut it open.Soak in water then take out a crumple it all up.Wring out excess water and lay out to air dry.Crumple real good this gives the vein effect like leather. Then just spray paint cut to fit your shade and I used a spray adhesive.I hope this helps! LOL!
