Product Questions and Answers

Is this film thicker than cellophane food wrap?

- Asked by Gene on 07-Jan-13

This film is 0.005 in. thick. Most foils are measured in gauges. This would be considered sturdier than cellophane and or wrapping paper.

- Answered by MisterArt on 08-Jan-13

Does it fade much over time?

- Asked by Chuck on 29-Nov-12

The colors are fade-resistant.

This was purchased to replace the original film on outdoor Christmas decorations. It worked beautifully. Placing the order was easy and delivery was fast and well packaged.

After a lot of searching, I finally found red acetate that was heavy enough to make a value finder at MisterArt and was thrilled to find it. Ordering was easy, and it arrived quickly. I use it to see color values when working on my paintings. It works, but would be perfect if it was a darker red.
Rated by: Barbara R. in Cohasset, MA
The sheets came perfectly wrapped up and ready to go. I will use these to determine which color is best for which student to enhance reading. Certain colors seem to eliminate glare and fuzziness the students report when reading without them. I thought the price was reasonable.

I was very impressed with the ordering system and the quickness of delivery.
Rated by: Nancy R. in Lebanon, KY
Many students have trouble reading because of glare on the page. I use the appropriate acetate film to reduce the glare for them therefore allowing them to view the entire letter/word. I love buying the big sheet of film and cutting them to the size that my students can handle. Thanks for an excellent product.

The red acetate film was purchased and used as an overlay to help dyslexic students with reading. The red color is darker than I had previously used, but I am very pleased. Certainly helps my readers.
Rated by: Darlene C. in Edgewood, WA
Just what I needed when teaching my watercolor class on value. Hard to really tell them about what the red acetate does until you use it and then they go, "Oh, I get it now..." Only negative is that the sheets are big and I had to cut them but that makes it more economical in the end. Glad carried the product!

The red is great for finding proper values. The sheet purchased was also large enough to trim and use as a protector so as not to smudge charcoal or graphite or spread colored pencil around. Had to search to find this product. Now is my favorite vendor!
Rated by: Kathleen F. in Portland, ME
The yellow acetate was purchased to use as a computer screen filter for my home and work computers. The color works beautifully! The only change I would make next time is that I would order a static cling acetate. Co-workers are now looking at the acetate sheets as lower cost options to traditional computer screen filters. People can choose the color that suits their eyes the best. The product arrived promptly and in mint condition.

I can put a piece of the red acetate over a colored picture and find the true values of the colors. It works great. I was a long time trying to find this product. I was really happy when I logged onto MisterArt and found it. Thanks MisterArt
Rated by: Elmer J. in La Mirada, CA
I shopped around for this product quite a bit and found MisterArt's prices exceptionally competitive. Product delivery was prompt and packaging of product for shipment was excellent. Thanks MisterArt!

I stumbled onto this item during a web search for a red translucent film. The red is what I needed for some custom sill plates. The film is thick enough not to tear easily, and very easy to work with. Great for coloring backlights in many applications. The 'BOND 527' multipurpose cement works well for adhereing the film to many surfaces.
Rated by: Steven A. in Seattle, WA
I am an amateur astronomer and use this material to filter light sources at night. It is fantastic for my PC Screen, PDA, flashlights, and other things bright enough for daylight to be used at night without destroying dark adjusted vision.
Rated by: Ronny A. in New York, NY
The blue acetate is just what I needed to convert the gauges in my car from green to blue. It worked very well with 3 layers. It also seems fun to work with to make any of my lights turn blue. I love the finished result. My gauges look amazing now.
Rated by: Kam S. in Chicago, IL
I used the blue and red acetate for an American flag project. The colors are very vivid and really made the project look professional. The acetate works very well with the spray adhesive, and if you are considering buying it, you will not have regrets!
Rated by: C S. in Glendale, AZ
I use the red and green Acetate Film to help me finalize my watercolor paintings. To determine if I have enough "pop" to my subject matter. Try it... it works for pencil drawings too.
