short version, no pics
the amazon stuff shed way too many surface fibers with a adhesive lint removal roller while cleaning up for clinging dust, sawdust, ,
showed compression "artifacts" from the small clamps I used to hold for positioning and tensioning while stapling,
and showed "bruising' when i used a hammer to set the tacks evenly, since they rest up against the ceiling stringers
trying to be as smooth and flat as I can
uneased edges / corners of the ply "challenged"the backings integrity , becoming transparent / tearing slightly
the 2 sided tape created a textural anomaly, but that was on the 1 strip where I tried using a wallpaper seam roller for better contact.
(of course i could paint the wood black on the edges and I may do so)
OTOH, the #3
does not shed anything, comparitively, but that's as far as I got with that for today.
It would probably vacuum clean also
all edges and corners will be eased
Question?> could the #3
hold well enough using 2" wide double sided carpet tape
the entire perimeter would be 1" with it wrapped around to the back for another 1" ,mol, of hold
the tape might also reduce and tendency for the backing to "reveal'
i couldn't paint the tape at the edges, maybe a fat shapie, just a line
there will be closely spaced strips / squares of the tape in the interior area of the panel, just so the whole of the fabric is not inclined to sag, owning to the fact of no interior area "support
OTOH, the one panel of the amazon stuff is black with the lights out and all the aforementioned problems become kina of a moot point. maybe not worth the headaches, tho.
but I will go with the #3
, I have 3 pieces cut for 3 of the larger panels but have to wait to put up the new ceiling fan .
