Hi, If you have been searching the web for glow in the dark stars to set up a star ceiling then you have found the right place and you will see very quickly that my unique and hand made star ceiling art is nothing like what you have seen until now. My XVR is a work of passion and dedication and now the XVR GEN II stars have been replaced with the next generation in the XVR series the most advanced bedroom stars in the world just got better! Star ceiling products have built a reputation of being very cheesy and meant for 2 year olds and the stuff is everywhere and if you are an adult you don't want cheesy you want realistic and stunning a truly brilliant night sky. Glowpatch star ceilings have been refined over more than a decade and are crushing that bad reputation by giving you the ability to create the Ultimate Star Ceiling!
Sleep under my unique and original star ceiling art with the ultimate glow in the dark star ceiling. These new GEN III stars use a break through in my micro star technology and for the first time create not only a super realistic star ceiling but one that will start to work within just a few minutes of lights out. You will actually start to see part of the star ceiling effect before your eyes even adjust to the darkness!
Defined movement effect. Many of the stars in your star ceiling will now be alive with movement instantly and right through the night. No more waiting to see the stars actually perform and no matter how much you try and convince yourself that they can't have realistic movement the stars will keep on dancing away just as they do in the true night sky right in front of your eyes.
These GEN III stars have also been redesigned for straight forward and simple install. The star kit configuration of the past versions XVR-530, XVR-532, XVR-776 and XVR-1064 have now been replaced with a single star strip format. This change enables you to order the correct amount of stars to best suit your ceiling area without over or under applying the stars.
The stars daytime colour remains whitish which makes them virtually disappear on white or very light coloured ceilings during regular daylight hours and then simply stunning once the room is dark. Also a new longer life self adhesive base extending the pre install shelf life to 6 months and keeping these glow in the dark stars very simple and easy to fit without the need for putties or glue.
These XVR bedroom stars will glow all night every night for decades and will charge fast from afternoon daylight or from almost any type of room light in around 15 minutes. For the first time it is even possible to use a UV black light to super charge your star ceiling but this is not something that is needed unless you have very poor charging for some reason. You can see my black light article Here about this.
These stars are also completely safe with the glow in the dark composition at: Zero VOC, Non-Radioactive and Non-Toxic making them perfect for all bedrooms whether an adult star ceiling, nursery star ceiling or even a brilliant night sky setup in a Motor Home.
If you are to look at the stars in the real night sky you will see variation the real stars do not all look the same in size or intensity. So if you want to recreate the same look on your ceiling you will need a product that will supply this variation. The star intensity panel shows the different glow strengths that you will receive with my new XVR series ceiling stars.
From the 8 micro star levels to the blue giants each of these new glow in the dark star strips that you receive will contain the full intensity range required to easily setup and replicate the true night sky. This star variation has also been increased further by the new high movement stars which will give your star ceiling a higher level of animation than ever before.
It is also critical that your ceiling looks black even if it's white to give you the illusion of deep black space. These new stars will provide that critical black ceiling effect giving your star ceiling super high realism. Have this amazing and relaxing work of art on your ceiling and enjoy sleeping under the stars!
Time lapse photograph of a blue giant and L7 micro star as well as a magnification so you can easily see the fully moulded shape but in reality these glow stars are very very small. Each of these tiny mouldings is it's own glow in the dark light source that requires no batteries or power supplies and because this energy is defined by each individual star it gives the stars the capacity to produce an awesome star ceiling effect that will shine all night and with zero maintanence.
My latest GEN III version glow in the dark stars are still fully hand crafted just as they have been since 2009. This is not a mass production process it is something that takes time to produce but controlling the pigment loading and intensity of each star is the only way to achieve true realism. This is also one of the reasons that cheap mass produced bulky or sticker stars or even using glow paint will never be able to come close to this same result. You can see my star info page Here for more detail about this.
Each of these new XVR star strips contain 154 full variation stars that will create the most awesome star ceiling effect and with a setup time of around 20 minutes per strip. See my selection table below before ordering to see the maximum star strips you should purchase for your ceiling area. Free shipping on all orders above $120.
I have setup this simple selection table to show the recommended maximium star strips for a given ceiling area. There is no minimum level requirment so before buying the stars you should read my short star ceiling setup article Here to work out how many star strips will suit you best.
No matter how many pictures you look at... you will never be able to appreciate how amazing these stars look. The stars on the ceiling in our daughters bedroom don't just look like little lights... the ceiling is transformed into a night sky with depth and distance... amazing simply amazing!
Your room must be DARK. The XVR stars are affected by interfering light just as with the stars in the true night sky. To ensure you have a perfect night sky effect in your room the stars must have darkness and the more light you have the less effect you will get.
Make sure your ceiling or wall is clean, dry and dust free before you place your stars or you will end up with some falling stars : )
Only take stars from the strips in the direction of the arrow on the strip. Once you have taken a star it does not have to be placed in the same order on your ceiling it can and should go anywhere. Never touch the adhesive side of the stars with your finger.
To take a star you can use the tip of a box cutter blade (See pictures above & Video) this method will give you full control. The blade does not need to be sharp but even if it is there is no pressure required to remove the stars from the new strips just a gentle nudge and you can lift each star away. You should use a small box cutter as shown in the above image or even an exacto knife or small craft knife just as long as it has a thin blade it will work just fine.
The best way to install the stars is to fit and view. Start by fitting a few of the stars then view the result for a few minutes in the dark before going any further. Once you have viewed in the dark you will have a much greater understanding of just how simple this is and you can continue to add more stars.
Again you should read my article Here on setting up a star ceiling as this will give you a better understanding of star density and how to setup your own perfect night sky. Fit a few stars, view in the dark room for a few minutes, fit a few more - super simple!
