Show me your Star Ceiling - Page 3

post #61 of 70
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.

Wow Spaceman... this is the first time I've seen these pictures, and I love them!! You did a nice job getting the shots.

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

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?

there's an idea. but how do you guys get it black? do you cover it with material? spray it?

^^^ 3M fabric adhesive, GOM fabric of your liking. FR701, Anchorage, etc.

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
