Cinefoil is a very handy light blocker/controller, it is like heavy duty tinfoil that is matte black.
Cinefoil as described by rosco...
"Matte Black Cinefoil is a matte black aluminum material that virtually soaks up light. Ideal for masking light leaks and/or eliminating unwanted reflections. It can be quickly molded to form barndoors, flags and other configurations. Lightweight, yet durable, Cinefoil can be quickly positioned in place with tape, staples or adhesives."

Other brands of the same type of material are available as well.
Tough Spun, It softens light and reduces intensity.
Tough spun is a sheet of non-woven polyester. If you have hard light that you want softer, put some tough spun over it. If you have a bright light that you need to reduce the intensity of, put some tough spun over it. It comes in different strengths (1/4 stop, 1/2 stop, full stop, etc) and different sizes (cover a hot shoe flash or cover a window). It also comes included in the swatch books I mentioned above.
There are multiple types of material similar to tough spun, each offers a different type of diffusion.

Here are some links to reflectors, panels, scrims, and PVC panels. I'm old enough to have learned from the Dean Collins series of Finelight videos back in the 1980's. Collins popularized his LightForm panel system,with black PVC tubes with inner bungees,and the EC-1 clamps which are very useful. "Panels" were first known as "scrims". Wescott, Chimera, Lastolite,and Calumet all have panels for sale,and many people make their own. The _clamps_ and multi-panel joining clamps is one area in which the factory made systems usually are better than most people's DIY soulutions, so consider buying some factory-made clamps for precise,professional positioning of your scrim or reflector.
