Mylar Wrapping Paper
By Don Rolfson

Something that I 'found' a couple of years ago was a roll of holographic Mylar wrapping paper. It is gold on one side and Silver on the other. I have cut it into strips for flash and added it under transparent wing cases to some flies and it has been quite interesting to work with. I have seen various colors and holographic patterns in the wrapping isle at the dollar store and other stores that carry that type of stuff. The best I have seen recently was a red color with large eye shaped circles as the holographic pattern. I neglected to buy that right away, and it was gone on my next visit, but I am keeping my eyes open.

Check out the wrapping aisle in your local stores and see what you can come up with! ~ Don
