Beva Film Thickness

    Am planning to re-order a roll of 1/2" wide Beva film, and noticed it comes in two thicknesses. I must have ordered 2.5 mil before, which they recommend for canvas, and now see that 1 mil is recommended for lightweight papers and fabrics. We've gotten in some cheap tourist paintings from Cuba that were done on thin cotton sheeting, and I'm wondering if the thinner one would work better. What has your experience been with thin as compared to thick Beva. Also, have you ever used it with paper, as their note mentions?

    I don't use Beva with paper but with everything else prefer 2.5 mil.

    I have bought both thicknesses, but prefer the 2.5 mil for everything (including paper).
