Susan - the Mylar is frosted on one side and glossy on the other. I also tried - and used successfully - some Rosco Opal Tough diffuser. (we have also have a film studio in the building and I was drawing on free resources!). Most of the gels are fairly thick to withstand the abuse they get, but this particular one is very thin, matte on both sides and fairly translucent. I don't know what the uv blocking status is with it, but didn't notice any appreciable drop in exposure times.

Keith... is your mylar glossy? Remember what we figured out a while back... if you get newton rings with it, you can spray it with a fine coat of clear spray, like Krylon brand or artist fixatives. Don't use something that's made for outdoor use 'cause it will have UV blockers. That may keep you working until you get the Kreene. good luck, Susan
