Anyone know where I can get some reflective mylar sheets for use on figure kit bases?

Michaels Crafts store or most Art and Craft stores in the flower decorating section and also by the scrapbooking section_ at least that is where I saw this stuff at the Michael's by me.

Ironically, hydroponics stores should have them too (I was thinking of purchasing some for my aquarium hood to reflect more light into the tank).

They sell it by the metre, and it's relatively cheap.

Actually I've found some online at those stores.  They're kinda thin though.  I did find some reflective paper at Michael's and thicker than the mylar rolls at those plant stores.

Thanks for the replies though!   :)

Were you able to find the reflective mylar? I'm looking for the same product. The product that I'm looking for is similar to a pair of mirrored sunglasses .08 - 1.0 mil thickness ( reflective and not see through on one side and smoked and see through on the other), but only in sheets or roll stock. Can you help me out? If not, is there anyone out there in cyber space that can help me? Thanks.

Yep.  I get a lot of my supplies there, including my AB, compressor, and spray booth.  Really low prices.

I remember seeing the rolls and even the reflective craft paper but the reflection is not as crisp as a mirror like the styrene mirror sheets are
