Don't worry, I will help you get your mural a little closer to the real thing. Thanks for being patient.
Now, if I remember right you bought some black lights. Or, anyone else who has gotten some. Where did you get them if you got them online? And, how are they working out for you?
I always suggest 4 foot shop lights from Home Depot or Lowes... but I know that some of you have ordered them online. I have some customers who are asking about where else to get lights... so I thought I would propose the question here.
What about lights for those who don't have a soffit ((or racetrack) around the outside edge? Have any of you gotten lights that you really like?
I bought an American DJ, 4 light, 160 watt panel light from a customer who had a soffit built for black lights (after using the panel light in the beginning) and it works great. But, what else have any of you found to work for you?
I know that at the "top secret" MANSION job, in an undisclosed state in the Pacific Northwest, the builders added some skinny white fluorescent lights around the edge into a soffit that they'd built especially for the lights. They worked fine... but I like black lights because your eyes aren't as affected by them and you can see the mural sooner.
Those little skinny white fluorescent lights were nice... and they looked like the 4 skinny black lights that are in the Amer. DJ panel that I have. I might have to search again for high power, thin black lights.
Anyway... let us know what is working for you guys.

Jeff!! Welcome back, I was about to send out a search team. You must be SUPER busy. Glad to have been a service to you, answering questions while you were away.
Still "very much so" enjoying my star mural. I can atest to Ursa Majors stencil. It may not have a BILLION stars, but looks great. I envy those who have had the pleasure of Jeff painting his masterpieces on your ceilings.
