Here is a quick video on how to make the reflector that doubles as a backdrop, as made famous by Sue Bryce. This video will show you where to find the polystyrene in your home improvement store as well as how I made the bases for the large reflectors to stand on their own. The white reflectors create beautiful light if you are photographing people. They also multi-task by doubling as a backdrop if you paint one side or even hang fabric from it.
However, if you are not a photographer, these are an inexpensive and lightweight option for other background uses. I will show you, in other videos, how I pin flowers to these for behind a cake table or create wall art in a child’s room. The possibilities are endless. I even used this same material to create no-sew cornice boards above my drapes. Stay tuned for more videos using this cheap polystyrene!
