This was a 6'x 4' creation to illuminate for night effect. It was a test and worked great not sure I will implement on my finished platform, I have got to say it looks like REAL clouds even from within a foot away!!!

It is a 1x3 wood frame screwed together w/small angle metal reinforced corners, then stretched and cable stapled a set of net led blue Christmas lights on frame cut and extended cord w/switch. I wrapped entire(top,sides and bottom w/dacron batting material comes enroll or folded,. Now my lights were encased to not being visible. I set eye hooks w/chain to suspend from ceiling. I took the entire and my bottom visible surface was spray glued and attached stretched and pulled clumps of again dacron but this time it was filling material/pillow stuff(cheap to buy large bag and is light) DONE It looks like a moon/star lit night sky!!
