I need some black wrap for these redheads that keep spilling light in places i dont want.
Is it possible to just by some aluminum foil and paint it black. is there a certain type of paint i should use that can stand the high temperatures of the lights, or would i just be better off ordering some black wrap from rosco?

Im thinking more on saving time than money, i would like to just go down to the hardware store pick up some paint so i'll have the wrap ready for tommorow when i resum shooting.

I have used aluminum foil when black wrap was not available (and whenever I roast a chicken) and the two biggest differences are #1 Black wrap will hold just about any shape you make it into and #2 Black wrap can be folded up neatly at the end of the day and literally used over and over and over again. It is very much worth the cost of $30 for a 50' roll.

I have some redheads and they get SUPER HOT! I wouldnt reckomend using them near to anything with any household paint on it becasue it will melt or set on fire! also in terms of saving time, wouldnt painting an entire roll of foil be way more time consuming than buying a roll of blackwrap?? depends how far away the black wrap shop is I guess.

I've used aluminium cooking foil when I didn't have black wrap. It works fine, just keep an eye out for any possible stray reflections, although I didn't see any when I used it.
