Question about plastic thickness?
Hello, I am making a prop that requires a small set of wings. They will be about 4-5 inches in length. I tried making a wire shape of the wings, but I don't like the way it looks and it doesn't attach to my prop very easily. So I was looking for maybe just plastic sheeting so I could cut out the wing shape and maybe glue the wings onto where I need them.
But I'm not really sure what kind of plastic to get or of what thickness. I would want something that isn't really shiny, like light diffusing film, but it can't be flimsy. It needs to have a certain amount of stiffness so the wings will stay put and not fold over or wiggle around. But it also needs to be thin enough to cut with scissors or an xacto knife.
Does anyone know where I can get that and what it's called? Thank you so much in advance!
