Black velvet fabric

Does anyone have a link to a GOOD black velvet fabric? After a quick search, I was overwhelmed with how many options are out there.

So of course, I want to know what you guys use and recommend.

I need a couple of yards of this fabric, so I can build a few panels which will be used below my screen to catch spillover when viewing in 2.35:1 and to mask vertical bars on my screen when switching from 2.35:1 to 16:9.

Thanks in advance!

j0-ann's royal velvet #3 had received good recommendations wrt to light absorbtion/.mitigation.
AVS member kevings uses a projector also and did almost an entire popcorn ceiling wrt to unwanted,interferring light in his viewing area.
I had the opportunity to view it as before and after.
he nailed it.

i'm trying to adapt the same stuff in my own set-up.

You DO NOT want to use the Royalty Velvet unless you have no other options.

And of course...you do have another option...and a better, far less expensive one no less.

I cannot understand how...after over 10 years of posting that same information innumerable times, how people still do not get the message.

I used to shop at JoAnns and Hancock Fabrics...and I used the Double Eagle and Madonna Brands, which were good. But at the very least I was paying $11.00-$14.00 yrd w/Coupon and supply was almost always limited. Without a Sale or Coupon, the best Black Velvet can cost over $24.00 yd!

Having stumbled upon Sy Fabrics, I have never found anything that would remotely make me switch.

Hey MM, I ordered 4 yards of this fabric and had a quick question for you.

Is this the material that all I need to do is make a cut about 4 inches deep, then I grab one end and have my wife grab the other while we both walk in opposite direction thus making a perfect rip?

Yep.....rip it.....rip it good.

Just be prepared to sweep...and also pull away the loosened threads.

PS....a straight 2" to 3" cut is really all that's needed.

Sticky Status is designated by the Moderators as per need / request. I'll look into creating another updated Sticky concerning suggested materials that cove a widely varied range of DIY screen construction projects....not just mine.

@MississippiMan

Hey man, I got the velvet today and I have a question.

Will the material "rip" both length wise and across?

Need to know before I start yanking on it and it won't rip right.

Rip it length wise....cut it side to side.

Honestly though....I have never had need to do anything but cut it across the shorter width....so I cannot say it will or will not.

But I'm a'guessin' no.....

I've seen a couple different answers on this, but how would i attach velvet to a drop ceiling right above my screen? I dont think push pins would be nearly enough, right? I'm thinking of coming about 5 feet out from the screen.

Thumb Tacks work great. Simply get then stuck onto some Cardboard, and spray them with a Flat Black "Enamel".

One every 2' x 3' square, while slightly pulling the material will result in a very smooth and flat surface.

It can be a bit shiny....just a slight sheen under Incandescent lighting.

It should have a "Velvet-like" short Nap

It can and should be only one layer thick... thin cloth with a Velvet Map

Thanks for the response ..

Why should it be thin and single layered?

You don't need nor want to pay extra for "Flocked" (lined) material, nor do you want / need the additional weight such thicker material has.

Flat Black coated Thumbtacks are the easiest and best way to hang up such Velvet onto Ceilings and Walls made of Gypsum or Wood...unless of course the walls & ceilings are Concrete Cinder Block that's Painted or coated with Stucco. Then you'll need some sort of adhesive (yuck) , or screws w/Washers (...also painted Flat Black...)

Bringing this back up from the Great Beyond to thank @MississippiMan .

I screwed up my first attempt using Royalty 3 from the large retailer mentioned in this post - but truly the visit to the actual store was where the real agony was. I'm looking forward to working with this stuff from SyFabrics for half the price of the Big Retailer, and the most I'll have to travel to pick it up will be my front porch.

So I received my 10 yards yesterday; it looks great but they folded it all up and put it in a tiny box. What are my options to get rid of the wrinkles? Is it iron safe?

I made the incorrect assumption I'd get it on a roll. What a pain!

I love my Royalty 3 black velvet from Joann fabrics. I regularly receive 60% off coupons, so, I certainly didn't pay a 'full price' for it. I think it works exceptionally well at absorbing light. I did go to the store to pick it up, which in my case happens to be somewhere I pass by almost every day - so, not a real challenge for me.

This is NOT to say anything negative about the Sy fabric stuff, I have never seen it or touched it, so, have no real thoughts on it.

I just wanted to share that for some folks, the Royalty 3 works great.

Yep. You cannot order direct via the Internet and expect it to be shipped on a Roll. Hanging the Velvet vertically, and steaming it works. DO NOT Iron...you will flatten out the Nap.

Just hanging will work...it just take longer.

If your wrapping, it doesn't have to be wrinkle free...just "Crease-free". Wrinkles will stretch out.

I'm planning on ordering this from the U.S. and using it for framing 4"-5" around the sides and bottom of my wall painted screen, but I'm not sure how to go about mounting it super straight/square.

I was considering attaching it to 3 lengths of door casing and then mounting it to the wall, but glue would be a nasty mess. I could wrap it around the casing and attach to the back, but then the casing wouldn't mount flat to the wall.

Any ideas or tips?

Velvet is very thin, and wraps in one layer, so that with any degree of attachment, the Frame will look completely flush against the wall.

So a little glue to hold it in place on the back side an I should be good to go. Unfortunately I have to buy a 10' length so that I can wrap the bottom frame with one piece. :-(

Is it because the fabric at Sy Fabrics is less expensive or better quality for light absorption?
