I wish to make wall sconces using Bullseye glass.  Does anybody know how hot
they can get (i.e. what type of bulbs are safe to use?)
Thanks,
Joyce

There are no commonly available bulbs that can get hot enough during
normal use to damage Bullseye glass -- wood, paper, plastic all would
ignite before the glass would be damaged
