Mirror with 20 light bulbs Answered

I am making a standing mirror with 20 light bulbs along the frame. Can somebody give me advice on how to wire it properly. What voltage should I use for sockets/bulbs? PS I live in Canada.

Depends on the bulb, wattage, power supply, plug direct into wall?. You should wire them in parallel so when one bulb burns out, the rest are still lit. LED bulbs are recommended since they will not put off a lot of heat. If this is for makeup/bathroom mirror you might want to get the "daylight" temp bulbs since regular will have the more yellowish light. Good luck.

and you might want to go with the smaller candelabra base sockets for smaller bulbs, although they are might be more expensive.
