    Does anyone know of a mail order supplier of Reeve's paints? It's certainly not available over the counter here!

    Please Check my thread entitled Ultimate focus hood on this same forum. The material I used would be perfect for a bag bellows as it is light proof and inexpensive and can be found at Jo Ann fabrics for $5.00 a yard and can be glued using black automotive weatherstrip adhesive. The material is a vinyl-neoprene and the scrim material is a silver-gray ballistic nylon. The material is heavy enough to hold its shape, yet supple enough to collapse flat. The pictures I included show just how stiff yet supple the material is. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

    Ian - I wonder if you can give the source of the material you mention here?

    Has the Leather Supply House gone under? No sign of the website.

    For checking lightproof quality I just wrap the material over a flash gun - that quickly shows up any pores.

    Sandeha, I buy the material from "The Range" it doesn't have a makers name,then make it light proof using Reeves Acrylic paint, as I posted earlier I know this technique works as I've used it to repair & make shutter curtains as well.

    The turn out like this:



    I'm going to make a few more sets now including a large set for a whole plate De Vere monorail.
