I need to make an electric lantern look like its a flame based one.
Since the location owner asked me not to carry around a flame I am using an electric lantern - Problem is the light is either on or off.
Anyone have an ideas to make it flicker like a real flame? I frosted the glass so you cant see that theres an electric bulb in there.
Hit me up with any thoughts/suggestions

I've used the dimmer with a momentary contact push button switch in parallel. You can gradually ride the dimmer with one hand, and add a rapid flicker with the push button in the other. Works great for an imitation candle.
Put it on a dimmer and twist the dimmer up and down to simulate a flickering flame.

however a lantern doesnt flicker like a flame, i think this gadget may be your best bet:
This is really a great find. I visited the site and found that they want $100. That seems a bit steep, but I do like the fact that it'll take up to a 200 watt light.
