In this article we'll show you how to create your own mica lamp. Before you start on your project, check if you have a tape measure, a metal lampshade (with strong frame) and shears. Now purchase the amount of mica sheets you require to make the mica lamp shades. It comes in four colors, dark amber, standard amber, stained amber and white. If you have a lamp shade that you may already have at home and decide which area you would be adding the mica too, or if you plan to do a full mica lamp shade, then measure the entire shade. Once the amount is decided purchase your mica sheets.
A standard incandescent 15W light bulb generates 122 lumens, or 8 lm/W. A CFL (compact fluorescent light) bulb of almost the same lumen capacity (125 lm) requires only 3 watts of energy, producing 42 lm/W. A metal halide light bulb is even more energy efficient, with some halide bulbs generating as much as 115 lm/W. Light bulb energy usage is imperative when considering how much illuminance is required for a room versus how many lighting fixtures are possible. Furthermore, as wattage is increased, so is electrical resistance, as illustrated by the Ohm's Law derivation R= P/I2 (where R= resistance (Ohms), P= power (Watts), and I= current (amperes)). When calculating the amount of lighting required for very large rooms, therefore, or rooms with high ceilings, these basic physical laws must be accounted for.
Eventually, choosing among materials and methods is for the knowledge of lighting pros and interior decorators and the personal sense of clients, etc.
