The new 5th generation XVR bedroom stars will be available from the start of Feb 2018 with pre-orders for first available stock late January. The new star kits will create a star ceiling area of 80-100 sq. ft and will be USD$97 including shipping within the USA or Australia, details will be updated on this page towards the end of this month. The information shown below was for the just ended 4th gen version but much of this will still apply to the next gen star ceiling kits.
Sleep under my unique and original star ceiling art with the ultimate glow in the dark star ceiling. These new GEN IV glow stars contain new sub micro stars at less than 2mm diameter and allows for a huge increase in depth for a given ceiling area. The resulting night sky effect is far greater than anything I could ever achieve before this development.
Deeper black space effect with a more finely tuned star variation range and super high movement effect adding to the realism. No matter how much you try and convince yourself that they can't have realistic movement within just minutes of lights out your star ceiling will be highly animated just as in the true night sky. Also the more you focus in the blackness of your star ceiling the more stars you will see pulse out of the darkness.
The stars whitish daytime colour and new sizes makes them virtually disappear on white or very light coloured ceilings during regular daylight hours and then simply stunning once the room is dark. All the stars including the smallest micro stars have self adhesive bases so they are simple to place on the ceiling and no glue is required. See the instructions below.
These XVR bedroom stars will glow all night every night for decades and 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 most faint micro star to the blue giants the glow in the dark stars that you receive with each star strip will contain the full intensity range required to easily setup and replicate the true night sky.
These stars are the most highly animated of any that I have been able to make before and having this type of realistic animation increases the perfection in the night sky view. The stars will also make your ceiling look black even if it's white or light coloured to give you the illusion of deep black space thruout your star field. 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 IV 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 and even more so now with the new super tiny micro stars which are challenging to make even under magnification. Controlling the pigment loading, mass and intensity of each star however is the only way to achieve true realism. This is also one of the reasons that using glow paint or cheap mass produced bulky or sticker stars will never be able to come close to this same result. You can see my star info page Here for more detail about this.
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 should be DARK. The XVR stars are affected by interfering light just as with the stars in the true night sky and without correct darkness you will not see many of the high depth faint/movement stars that provide most of the awesome star ceiling animation.
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 : ) Also I have pictured how to install the stars on a black background just so you can see how I am fitting them but on a white or very light coloured background or ceiling the stars will be almost invisible during regular daylight hours. That is not to say you cannot have a dark background or ceiling as the XVR-1047 stars have their own reflective white base and can work on any background colour.
Installing is now more simple than ever you simply need to seperate the stars from each single star strip as I show above to an approximate half square metre area. This would also be one star strip to every 5 or 6 square feet of star ceiling area that you are creating. That's it the stars will do the rest just have the room dark and after a few minutes in the darkness you will be enjoying the most amazing indoor night sky.
