    Default Lightweight see-through material ?

    I would like to get some ideas for various materials to build flat displays but be able to see through it. I think wireframe is too heavy. And obviously plexiglass would be see-through. But I think plexi would get eaily scratched and go opaq over the years. Are there other flat or bendable materials that some of you have used to hold your display items ?
    Thanks,

    I have never seen it, nor used it, but they do make transparent coroplastic, (or so I've been told)

    Some have used "chicken wire fence" or similar open mesh type fence. They usually require a support frame of wood or pvc pipe.

    I have made wireframe "frames" for some of my patriotic items, so I can stretch mesh or net lights over them.

    During the off season, I roam the aisles at Lowe's or Home Depot trying to think of "other uses" for various items, especially the in the back of the garden center areas

    Chicken wire. I've bought some in years past that was very rigid.
