An bulb clip adapter can be added to any standard shade to allow it to be placed over the bulb. Chandelier lamp shades usually have built-in bulb clips made for the small flame or candelabra shaped bulbs. Shades used as hanging lamps may use an uno mount which has a center ring large enough for the bulb socket to pass through. These also appear on some table lamps. You can use a bulb clip on a replacement shade instead of an uno mount.
Lamp shade crafter's handbooks are also widely available on the market. These contain instructions for creating complete lamp shades from scratch. They also have techniques on improving or repairing lamp shades you may already have at home. A common technique in refinishing old lamp shades is decoupage or pasting patterns over existing plain shades.
Before we go to some design principles let's talk about the 3 main types of illumination.
Rawhide lamp shades can be used as replacement lamp shades on your existing lamps or as the perfect accessory to your new rustic lamps. Each rawhide lamp shade is handmade and the shade of choice for southwestern table lamps, vintage or antique lamps or western floor lamps. Old world craftsmanship and the natural material characteristics of rawhide allow rustic lamps to create perfect ambiance. If you want rustic lamps that hang from the ceiling such as antler chandeliers, rawhide chandelier lamp shades allow light to filter through the rawhide. Mini lamp shades or clip on lamp shades have a built-in bulb clip at the top of the shade which allows the lampshade to rest directly on the bulb to give your rustic lamps a custom look. Rustic lamp shades made of rawhide work with cowboy, Native American Indian lamps, log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch, lodge or country décor and are the staple of western and southwest decor. You can find a full assortment of sizes and colors at Mission Del Rey where stock or custom rawhide shades are available in 16 sizes and 5 colors. You will love the glow of rawhide lamp shades.
Lamp shades are quite easy to maintain. Before attempting to clean your lamp and its shade, be sure to unplug the cord first. Take off the shade from the lamp. If it is made of fabric, use detergent and warm water to wash it (check if the fabric is color-safe). Just dip the shade in sudsy water and then rinse in clean water. Use mild detergents only; dish-washing liquids are fine. The cloth will stretch and sag while wet. It should tighten up again when it gets dry. To dry, hang over a bathtub or hang from an outdoor clothesline. You can also pat dry with a thick bath towel until it is almost dry and put it back over your lamp. The heat from the bulb will finish drying it out. If you are cleaning a plastic, plastic-coated, laminated, parchment or fiberglass shaded, merely wipe it with a lathered up cloth or sponge. Rinse with a clean damp cloth and then wipe dry.
