String Light Shades - how many watts can they handle?
How do you determine the maximum wattage a string or paper shade can handle? I'm sure it has something to do with the size of the shade, so if there's a formula I can use, please let me know. I would love to be able to put 100 or 150 watts in one fixture, so what size shade do I need? See pictures for the type of shade I'm talking about. Thanks.
(note: I would make the string globe, so if you know of materials that can stand up to heat better, please let me know. The plan now is to use string or yarn, and wallpaper paste.
