Problem is, I want a very BLACK background. The paper will do that just fine, fabric though tends to be a bit harder to deal with as it tends to be more reflective. Maybe I just haven't found the right fabric yet, but getting a very flat fabric background is proving tough. The pane velvet looks GREAT. I love that stuff, but when you don't want highlights it is not the stuff you want.
Any suggestions on a good fabric that will work well for being black-black? Or conversely white-white (same problem, but in reverse....)?</td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
I've been using black felt. I have a piece 7' (?) wide ... and it is about as non-reflective as is possible. Cleans up fairlly well with a vacuum cleaner.
Should be easily obtainable at your nearby fabric store.
Hmm... white. I've been using a roll of Savage "Super White" - even for color, although Savage says not to. I've been thinking of Rip-Stop nylon.
It is relatively easy to be resourceful when one is inherently frugal!
