Stage Scrim Fabrics for Softening or Dissolving Stage Effects
Scrim Material is often used to hide actors or stage props for a big reveal or present virtually any light diffusion dependent onstage effect to a live audience. Scrim fabrics are lightweight, woven cotton and effectively see-through when they’re lit from an oblique angle, but appear solid when lit from the front. Their soft diffusive qualities have made Theatrical Gauze, Sharkstooth Scrim and Leno Filled Scrims popular selection among art directors, set designers, and professional photographers. Chicago Canvas & Supply stocks three varieties of scrim fabric to match your theatrical production needs.
Gauze fabric is ideal for Theaters, Displays, Special Events, Set Decorations, Curtains, Window Treatments, Party Decor
Sharkstooth material is an open weave fabric often used to create the bleed through effect on reveals.
Leno is essentially sharkstooth scrim with the holes filled in. The soft textured surface is ideal for bounce drops, lighting drops, and cycloramas.
