I know this is used for models to stand on, but I don't know how thick to get it .

Is 1/4" ok or should I go 3/8" or 1/2" thick" How large a piece is recommended without being unwieldy or difficult for one person to handle ?

If your seamless is over a hard surface. I would think 1/4 inch would be fine.

I have been using the 1/8" which lasted me about 1 1/2 years. Can break if not careful but costs a lot less then the 1/4".

I used it over seemless which was over hardwood floors. If being used over a soft surface like carpet you may need the 1/4"

I have found that clear plexiglass works great with black backdrops but when it comes to white, any flaws in the plexiglass shows up. I have been told by those who use it that white plexiglass works best on white backdrops. And I use 1/8 clear on my black backdrop without any problems.

to the dimensions used? I understand the thinkness, but I've seen it in 4'x8' and smaller. What size is good for a studio? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

If you are doing fullbody 4x8 may be just big enough. smaller then that is tough to fit into frame properly.
