Silver Mirror Wall Paper Find

Found this from PRC (Peoples Republic of China).
Mirror effect wallpaper wall paper silver reflective wallpaper stickers pvc stickers furniture film wallpaper gold silver-inWallpapers from Home & Garden on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

Looks impressive, free shipping. Wall paper (PVC) with adhesive back.
.18mm = .00708" Thick
61cm wide = 24.01"
10m = 32.80 feet long

Thinking of buying a roll and then using digital grounds for printing.

Anybody try this stuff?

Mike

Printing on a color laser printer seems to make the finished product more glossy.

Silver Chrome Wall Adhesive Wall Paper

Just bought a roll 24" wide x 32ft long of Silver Chrome with adhesive backing wall paper. Looks like mylar in the photos. Cost was $34 US direct from China (free shipping).

To print, bought a quart of InkAid Gloss II for another $45 (includes shipping). Same as digital Grounds but cheaper and available in different sizes up to a 5-gallon bucket. (the quart cost $7 more than a pint of Digital Grounds)

Going to see if this will work for shiny metal look for Ken's Apollo and a Huge F104 Starfighter.

Hopefully it will work or I'm out $79........

Mike

New Shiny Cardstock

While shopping today, stopped in Walmart.

Looking for some mechanical pencils, went past the display for cardstock.

Gold glitter was one option, could not find any silver or chrome, would of bought some silver it they had it.

High priced item, but decided to purchase, could see a shiny canopy and a really cool looking early Atlas.

They had some black cardstock, and the astro-brights have some very interesting colors available now.

$5.76 for 10-sheets so will see what I can find this will work best on. Way to expensive for just any model. $0.576 per sheet. I have 2x3ft cardstock that is cheaper....

Mike

Hmmm....
Are you using these with laser printers? My experience with foiled paper and inkjet printing is not to good. (puddling, smears, poor adhesion... )

Inkjet, most laser printers don't work well for papermodels. Ink can get into the paper fibers, the plastic toner can only try to bond to the surface. Once you try bending the laser can sometimes "peel" off.
