DIY LAMPSHADE STYRENE: Pressure sensitive adhesive styrene for lampshades is a thin polystyrene sheet with a sticky adhesive backing. It's the most commonly used lampshade liner in professionally manufactured lampshades because it's flame-resistant, durable, and translucent enough for the light of a bulb to pass through. Reveal the adhesive backing on the styrene by peeling back a release liner, then apply your choice of material to the styrene to make professional quality lampshade.

RESCUE OLD LAMPSHADES: The lampshade materials in old shades tends to crack and yellow after many years of use, but that doesn't mean you have to buy a brand new lampshade. Before throwing out your old shade, consider restoring it to its former glory by simply replacing the lampshade liner with adhesive styrene.
