    Clear vinyl tarp
    It's gonna be heavy, but its clear. It'll probably be a hot house, too.

    I found some nearly transparent ripstop at WM a few days ago and made tarp covers out of it. I can only imagine that once it had been covered in DIY sil that it would make the material slightly more opaque. Anything even a short distance away would not be seen with any clarity in the unmodified fabric, so a sil version would probably be even more blurry.

    All I can say is "He who lives under a clear tarp, should not throw stones... or should that be "Gather Stones"?
