I'm trying to make a material that closely resembles the below photograph (ignore the hue)

blue PVC roll

As you can see, my results below arent all that great, Whilst I'm okay(ish) at the modelling side, I'm useless when it comes to materials and in this instance I've hit a brick wall!

PVC roll attempt

current node setup

Any advice on the correct material setup would be really much appreciated! Please feel free to explain like you would to a five year old!

  • $\begingroup$ If what you're trying to achieve is the "ghost image" of all the inner stripes of tape, maybe increasing Transparency and Transmission Bounces in the "Light Paths" rendering settings could help? $\endgroup$
