      Hello, you’ve probably heard of buying one big thing of duvetyne and folding it down for use in smaller frames and how that works well, does it work for other non negative full fabrics like unbleached muslin or even china silk? Have you even heard of someone folding up unbleached muslin for use in smaller frames?

        The problem with unbleached muslin is that it significantly reduces light emission. Depending on your lights, placement of lights and diffusion you may lose a ton of light and be in a pinch–which is why a lot of the time, muslin can be more efficient as a bounce source.

        Your best bet is to test a scene where you had your light open face (or w/o diffusion) then place each sheet and see if you like the effect. I hope that helps
