I have several of these that I use with LED bulbs...http://www.amazon.com …age_o00_s00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)
What might I wrap them with to create a snoot? -?


The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.

If you are using LED bulbs, anything that will support itself. cardboard, black foam, black poster board. Use a little imagination...

Black aluminum foil - often called cinefoil - such as this product (external link) would allow you to create what you want easily. Flat (as in non-shiny) black gaffer's tape can be used to fasten sections of the foil.

I've just recently started playing with this type of continuous lighting...
That cinefoil is black...using my reasoning, that would absorb light, would I not want something to reflect the light, maybe as a foil? -?
