You can get foamalux in larger sizes as a special order, but it might not be worthwhile. I made the border from 6 pieces. You can't see the joins unless you look hard. If I were to do it again, I'd use gaffer tape to join the foamalux and cover the lot in material so it was just 4 pieces instead.peterc14 said:The border is made from foamalux - was this one sheet cut to form the border or couple of pieced attached (glued?) together. My screen is slightly larger than 8 x 4 sheet, so not sure foamalux comes i this size.
I used wool serge (theatre backdrop cloth) that was leftover from my ceiling. It's pretty black. I guess velvet would be better still.peterc14 said:The foamalux is covered with black material - velvet? Where did you buy the velvet from - seems to be expensive material.
You can order samples on EBay if you want to see what it's like. It's a good alternative to hardboard or MDF because it's light, easy to cut and flexible.peterc14 said:I have never actually heard of foamalux - would you recommend it?
