Product Questions and Answers

Is this the best product to create a faux-stained glass design for a window? I need a product that will stand up to sunlight for a number of years without becoming brittle or yellowing.

- Asked by julie H. on 15-Mar-14

Dura-Lar is not meant for this purpose but is intended for overlays etc. in a studio setting. We recommend Gallery Glass paint. Once Gallery Glass is painted and dry, it may be peeled off and stuck back down like a "cling-on." Plaid rates Gallery Glass paints a 2 on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the most lightfast.

How do you cut this material?

- Asked by sb on 09-Jan-14

An X-acto knife or small utility knife will cut this acetate-like material.

Is this clear?

- Asked by Shilpa on 05-Dec-13

Yes, it is clear.

Is Dura-Lar acetate alternative acid-free?

- Asked by Patricia Gause on 28-May-13

Actually, Dura-Lar and Clear-Lay are both acid-free.

- Answered by MisterArt on 28-May-13

Which is better for protecting an oil-on-paper, Clear-Lay or Dura-Lar?

- Asked by Patricia Gause on 24-May-13

These two products would be about the same. It depends on how are you trying to protect it. If it's for storage, the glassine is what most people use, as it is acid-free.

- Answered by MisterArt on 28-May-13

Can the "Clear With Adhesive Backing" be used in laser or inkjet printers?

- Asked by Patrice on 18-Jan-13

The Dura-Lar Acetate Alternative Sheets by Grafix can be laminated, but is not suggested for use with a copier or printer.

This is great for covering books in our school library. Protects them very well, and makes the covers look like new.

This stuff did the job just great... I needed it as an overlay for blueprints and large format plans. It was great!
Rated by: Maryann R. in Harwinton, CT
I was restoring on a vintage, 1968 doll display that originally had plastic windows in it. These were ruined and needing a replacement, I went to the internet for some help in finding something similiar. I was delighted to find the Mister Art carried almost the exact same acetate as the original display. It came out beautifully! The Acetate is crystal clear and very sturdy. It was also conveniently delivered to my home. I will definately purchase other products from Mister Art!

great product..arrived right on time, and worked perfectly :)
Rated by: Pam S. in Spokane, WA
The product I purchased was easy to use and exceeded my expectations. It arrived just when I needed it for my project.
Rated by: James A. in Pittsburgh, PA
I want to commend both the vendor and the product. As a first-time buyer from MisterArt, I was pleased with the usability of the website, the whole buying experience, and the reasonable shipping charge. As a sole proprietor, I only have time to deal with vendors who respect & value their customers as I experienced with MisterArt. I ordered the .015" thick version of Clear Acetate Alternative, and it was everything I expected. The protective film on both sides kept it scratch-free while I cut it to size. I would recommend both this product and this vendor to everyone.
Rated by: Amie G. in Trenton, NJ
I bought the .015 thickness. It was everything as advertised. It had a film protector on both sides so it was scratch-free to the moment I used it. It stayed flat even when it was stored rolled-up in the closet-- it unrolls nicely, and stays flat.
