I think foam board would work but the problem is covering it so that it is black. A lot of things like paint and adhesives will eat away at the foam. If you could find some that wouldn't then I think foam would be a good way to go.

My guess is because it is easily painted, has a smooth surface to it, and will not punch out when drilled using the very small bits required to hold the fibers.

Could you punch a fiber through some OC 703? Or maybe use a larger sewing needle to pull it through?

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

Easily. Use a micro tube (or Syringe needle). Stick tube in from exit side, stick fiber down tube, remove tube.

I found some adhesive that I'm using for styrofoam and fabric.... what material do you use to cover the ceiling?

Even velvet I think would work. You might lose some of the sound attenuation, but it'd be dark.

Recommend against velvet. Unless using stretch velvet, maybe. Normal velvet has no stretch and it will change size with fluctuations in humidity. Bad for wrinkling or sagging once installed. Although if your glue coverage was 100% I don't guess it would matter. Anyway Much more expensive than GOM (if you get it from me anyway). GOM panel fabrics are made for this.

But we are getting OT for the "show me" subject...

I ordered 20 yards of black FR701. I need about 13 yards for the start ceiling, so it'll be a while until I get to use it...I use the other 7 yards to cover my OC703 screen wall

Painted can be done, but the genera;l consensus seems to be that fabric works the best. With paint, you have to drill the holes for the fibers after painting or the holes get covered up. You have to be careful when drilling not to ruin your paint job. Also repainting would be difficult once the fibers are in place.
