Thanks you all again for your comments and questions. Phil, it is the same exact material, the only difference is that is has a white backing instead of a transparent one... this actually makes the orientation easier to figure out.
If your impression is coming out lighter than mine did, try 'breaking in the gimmick' the same way I teach on the DVD. I will also pm you about another possible solution, I cant do so on here without tipping the method.
Thanks for for the PM and the advice, much appreciated.
