gobo gluing issue

I built myself three 4 ft x 6 ft gobos, each made from a framed piece of ¾ inch plywood, a layer of 1/8 inch high-mass vinyl, and three 2x4 batts of acoustical/fire rockwool. Each batt is wrapped first in light tracing paper to keep fibers in, then all the batts are wrapped in theatrical polyester muslin fabric, which is durable and fire-resistant, if not entirely acoustically transparent.
