How did you attach the foamalux frames to the ceiling? my plan was to sit them on the MDF shelf that I'm building all around the top of the walls, but i like the fact that you have raised yours up and attached it to the ceiling.
I made a wooden frame to go on the back of the foamalux and just screwed the whole thing to the ceiling joists along each edge. The fabric covers the screws at the edges, so they don't show. There are a couple of screws in the middle for extra stability.

Thanks Neil, I love what you have done with this room. I was going to use foamalux or black corex but i was going to wrap them taught rather than glue them but this means I will have to come up with another way of fixing rather than screw through the frames into the ceiling.

Since the frames are fairly light, how about using some large hooks and eyes?
Its not a bad idea Neil, my only concern is the frames can twist if they are not fixed in all 4 corners because of there size. I'll come up with something. What mm MDF did you use for the shelf around the ceiling?

Very impressive Neil , regarding the ceiling why didn't you just use matt black foam PVC ? :)
Originally, I intended to make a frame and use the cloth without the foamalux, but I wasn't convinced it would stay taut enough, so the foamalux was 'Plan B'. In any event, I think foamlux is probably too shiny on its own.

That's the one.

how many "stars" do you have
cheers
I bought the 200 kit with white twinkling stars.

Excellent room Neil

its a pleasure seeing rooms that someone has gone to the effort of having a good design and done their homework on suitable materials and then seeing it all come to fruition.
Mine will be having a refurb soon and I was thinking of finally going for the star ceiling this time. The foam board would make it a much easier thing to do so thanks for that.
