How do you attach gels on an alienbee that has the parabolic speedring mount?

How about adding a gel to the standard 7" reflector with regular umbrella mounted?

Thanks for the link. Where does one find large sheets of 1/4 to 1/2 CTO anyways?

I ended up getting 1 sheet of 1/2 CTO and 1/4 CTO 20"x24".

I'm going to try and wrap the "Death Star" the Stobist refered to it as. Great links and thanks again. I'll post pics when I get the project done.

I did this exact thing for a shoot a couple weeks ago, just cut pyramids in the size and shape of each one the ring and put it in place witch clear packing tape, works perfect.

I'm debating on getting a spare parabolic mount and reflector to have a CTO gel permanently mounted on them.

After I did it the first time I bought a used Parabolic set on Craigslist for 30 bucks and I keep it set up with 1/8 CTO all the time.
