Wen to the local hardware store to get other things, figured they'd have them and I swear they looked at me like I had just sprouted a second head or something
maybe try a scap booking or an art store?
Isn't this just parchment paper sold in sheets? If so, do you have a GFS or a flower factory, or any catering/small business supplier? They should carry it. Sams, or cosco I think they call them, should have it too, but I doubt a hardware store would.
I think I have seen that at Hobby Lobby in the art section.
office supply stores carry it as overhead projection sheets
Country Kitchen Sweet Art has them. Also, I believe Chef Rubber has them too.
my local store already thinks I am nuts. I have been in asking for acetate sheets, and sooo many other things (some of which I have learned about, here on Cake Central) and they too think I am wacked.
.... BUBBLE TEA STRAWS????????????????.....
Office supplies stores will have it as overhead transparencies. Usually they're standard paper size but can easily be cut to the size you want. I have two that are slightly larger than my hand, cut from one sheet.
I bought an expandable plastic file folder and but it apart. I ended up with one large piece and several smaller pieces to work with. It's a little heavier than regular acetate, but holds up and washes very well. I've even put it in the dishwasher.
an art supply store- they have huge sheets
You can buy sheets in an art supply store, often they are in a bound tablet form with tissue between each sheet. They come in all sizes. the l;ast pack I bought was 11X17 inches. I also bought acetate by the yard at Michaels or Joanns, it was in the fabrics section. They had a variety of weights and the bolts were about 48 or 56 inch wide stock.
