Cellulose Acetate Sheets
Cellulose acetate sheets for creating your own unique musical instrument, jewellery, beauty accessory and craft creations. Easily cut, bent, moulded and polished it is a pleasure to work with and gives stunning results. There is a random element to the pattern in each sheet, so no two finished pieces will be exactly the same. Our acetate sheets are unsurfaced, and will need some finishing once they have been cut or formed as required. Smaller pieces can be effectively barrel polished (wooden media, medium-fine pastes), while flat parts should be polished as you would paints and lacquers.
Unlike its predecessor cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetate is stable and non-flammable, safe to store and easy to work. Most commonly used for spectacle frames, our sheets are available in a wide array of sizes and styles to suit your project, whether it's creating a custom guitar pickguard or your own hair and beauty accessories.
Our patterns range from multi-colour abstracts to subtle tortoiseshell and pearl like effects. Please note these sheets do not have any adhesive on them. If creating acoustic guitar pickguards use our sheets of 3M double sided adhesive to easily affix the pickguard to your instrument.
