I've been busy with the downlights and their panels. Here's some pics of the downlights all wired up and ready for the panels.
And here they are working.
This is the downlight holders that I got. The 8 under the soffits is square and satin chrome, while the 4 under the proscenium is round and gun metal colour.
The pieces of the frames is cut form MDF and ready for assembly. There is 6 long ones and 2 smaller ones.
Here's the first two being clamped:
And here's the two mini-me's in a thight situation!
After whatching glue dry for a while, eventually all frames are ready for the next step.
All the frames will be covered with black velvet at a later time. For now I put the holders and the lights in - I'm very happy with the results
I've angled the lights towards to wall so that they'll light up the wall panels later.
And a closeup in the dark.
The lights illuminate the room quite nicely now, but I think it will look much darker when about everthing in the room is black and the only other colour will be the red panels. I hope it's not too dark. The reflection of the light from the proscenium downlights on the screen will also light up the place better I think.
