Recently I just finished a shadow box, but instead of using paper or spandex for the center I would like to use plexiglass semitransparent white or something similar.....Have any of you used it and can you tell me were can I purchase it?

Thanks

Well...you could just coat the plexi with Krylon paint for plastic.

Just a thought.

That is a good idea, the question I have....would this prevent the production/appearance of the shadows?

Probably not. You are projecting a bright light, from behind, on what now is a white surface. The paint will not act the same as if you were dealing with a totally pigment impregnated material.
