Kite Sails In Colored Plastic
I would like to know where to find different colors of plastic sheeting for my kite making? Thanks!
I just go to the plastic bags section of the local supermarket. The color choice is a little limited, but at least it's all cheap. Small kites can use clear freezer bags. For larger kites, bin liners of various sizes are great to use. Rubbish bags, 'garden bags'. I've seen black, sky blue (!), dark green and orange colors here in South Australia. No doubt your choices will be different - just try all the local supermarkets in your area.
Another place to try is all the local hardware stores. Here, choice may be even more limited, but they sell drop-sheet plastic which can be used for some rather large kites. You know, 8 footers and up! I've seen clear and light blue drop sheet plastic, but no darker colors unfortunately.
Your final option is to go online and search for 'plastic bags' or 'drop sheets'. This is sure to turn up a few more colors you might not have seen before.
Hope you find something eye-catching for your next kite!
