Nice job! Neat idea too :) Is that double sided latex or did you do two different layers to get the different colors?

Hi there - it's MJT's Transparent Smoke in .30mm. 4 yards. Used duck cloth (covered in the sheeting) at the top to hold the grommets in place securly.

This looks stunning. The eyelets or grommets that you used are they stainless steel. I battle to find Stainless steel ones. Most I can find are made from brass either painted, chromed or as is and the stain the latex eventually.

Hi Andre,

They are actually brass with a nickel finish. They do discolor lighter Rubber sheeting, like the natural transparent, but on the transparent smoke, you can't see it at all (see pics). It actually doesn't look stained at all and this is from 2012 and I just took these pics today.

The curtain lasts about 2 years before it starts to get all nasty from being in the shower/water etc. I shake the water off after each use and leave the sides open for better air circulation. The top 3 inches, where the duck cloth/grommets are, I just cut off and reattach fresh sheeting under it.

If you want stainless grommets, go to an industrial supplier, or a place that deals with sail makers.  For many of their applications, stainless is the only thing that will do, brass is just too soft and too subject to corrosion.

McMaster Carr Industrial Supply has a good selection, reasonable prices, and no minimum order.

Also, if you're used to using brass, stainless grommets are definitely harder to set, they won't work with the cheaper pliers-style tools used for brass.  Press-type tools or hammer-and-anvil tools are the best bet for stainless.
