    Photography Light Box Tent

    If you use 5 sheets of translucent corrugated plastic card then you don't need any cardboard box. Just buy 5 pieces, cut them as you wish, with equal sizes to make a cube or different sizes to make a box of different sided dimensions - mine has a rectangular cross section.You can stick the box together with scotch tape or cloth tape.One sheet where I live cost me a dollar equivalent, which is in Thailand BTW.Or you can put pins through the thickness of one side down the elongated channels in the other piece.

  • A $20/20min Commercial Quality Folding Light Box / Light Tent

    I appreciate your design, much better than those cardboard boxes with the sides cut out, they don't impress a client!I just discovered something in the town where I live which is in Thailand that I was wishing existed but decided did not exist, so I went out and bought some cloths and skinny plastic sticks to make a light box. I've dumped that stuff now.What does actually exist is translucent corrugated plastic card, sometimes called artboard I think. About the thickness of cardboard but translucent, and rigid enough to hold the shape of a box. Just buy 5 pieces, cut them as you wish equal sizes to make a cube or different sizes to make a box of different sided dimensions).You can stick the box together with scotch tape or cloth tape.One sheet where I live cost me a dollar equivalent.

    May I ask how you matched the squares to the pantone values? did you do it by eye or did you get a reference sheet with the exact values from x-rite?And .......2 of the reds in the photo have the same Pantone value, i.e. "199 U"The second red is the incorrect one - what is the correct Pantone code for the second red?Thanks

    You must have matched the colors by eye - it seems to be vital to get the colors right or it just won't work. I think the ones below are the correct values Your quoted Pantone values (in your picture) are "Pantone Solid Uncoated"If x-rite values are the same as the original Macbeth Color chart system then the Pantone and hex values are as follows (the common names are first, then the hex valuesand finally the "Pantone Solid Uncoated" values)ROW 1 left to right---------------------------------Dark skin #735244 Pantone:4625 ULight Skin #c29682 Pantone:4655 UBlue sky #627a9d Pantone:2139 UFoliage #576c43 Pantone:364 UBluish flower #8580b1 Pantone:7676 UBlue Green #67bdaa Pantone:570 UROW 2 left to right---------------------------------Orange #d67e2c Pantone:138 UPurplis...
