I have a light fixture which is designed as three rows of LED light strips. The problem is that the LEDs appear as brilliant points of light. In the fixture I want to diffuse this light so that it appears pure and continuous. The fixture points downwards and is about 6" wide by 24" long.
I have tried frosted glass, but when the LEDs shine through the frosted glass, the individual points of light can still be clearly seen. The light is not continuous and smooth.
I notice that there are LED bulbs that give off an even light, so obviously they use some method to transmute the LED point sources to a continuous shine from the entire bulb, but I do not know how this is done or whether I can imitate it.
What are my options for diffusing the light from the light strip to make a continuous plane of light?
