Multi-Purpose Blackout Cloth

Note: This product has been discontinued by the manufacture.

This Multi-Purpose cloth is 100% blackout fabric. For those of you unfamiliar with this type of fabric, it is essentially layered fabric which light will not penetrate. Put any wattage light behind this fabric and you will not see any light come through it. This characteristic is achieved by layering white, or colored, fabric over solid black fabric, creating a solid piece of fabric that light cannot pass through.

Still, why in the name of Dharma did we decide to bring this in? Well, when we saw it at a show, we thought it was really cool all the different things you can do with it. Roc-Lon Multi-Purpose cloth can be used in many, many ways - see the list below. It can be printed on directly in a wide format printer, painted on, including hand painting, stenciling, stamping, silk screening, etc., embroidered, what have you. Dyeing is not recommended as this fabric is largely constructed from Polyester. That's why we are offering the colors. If you are looking for heavy duty, multi-purpose cloth, or blackout fabric, this is the stuff. The wider rolls are excellent for printed or painted backdrops. We were also really impressed by the great floor cloths that this makes.

I paint on Roc-lon with acrylics. Stretched on a frame like regular canvas or just taped flat to the wall it is a great surface for murals or anything you would put on a linen or duck type of fabric. Cuts clean bright white for starting rolls well after it's got layers and layers of paint. Love it!
