Artistic project,
In need of a rigid/ stiff fabric that can be molded to the shape of an object.
This fabric can be a tight white mesh with a high gain, non-reflective element to it. Must be able to be back lit as well as front lit.

I would pick the fabric that has the look you want. Then worry about the "stiffness" or getting it to hold shape. There are sizings, glues and processes that you can do to the fabric to make it hold a shape.
