Where to find glass or acrylic

Post by the.traveller » 07 Jul 2011, 19:23

I found 2 manufacturers of special glass and acrylic.
Mind you it isn't cheap. Both are used at exhibitions and by artists.

http://www.claryl.com/us/ for the us, look on the webpage for other countries and dealers.

http://www.tru-vue.com/Tru-Vue/For-Your-Home/ same.

Claryl, 2mm thick, will cost in my country € 160 per m2.

Tru-Vue museumglass, 3mm thick will be € 600 per m2

Please add manufacturers, dealers and even local shops with the type of glass and prices for others
