Thank you LouG and welcome to active posting!
While it's hardly ever a case where we we a first post come from a source who has already painted a SF Screen, It's great that you found this solution to your liking and did not need any additional support and instructions.
If that happens often enough, I'll get a lot more sleep.
By stating you did a 4.0 Gain, I really think you meant you did a 4.0 SF which involves using 4 ounces of Colorant in the specified amount of Reflective / Viscosity base mixes. That would not create a surface that had a 4.0 gain level though...more akin to approx 1.1 gain.
As far as rolling with a Foam roller, it's been done (I've done so on Mirrors before) but it's risky, and to prevent creating a case of sheen, the surface must almost be "dry rolled", a procedure I've opted not to translate into instructions because of the ready availability of very affordable Electric HVLP Sprayers, whose use is far more intuitive.
It would be greatly appreciated by all if you could post some images of the screen, it's surface, and hopefully a few with content shown.
Thank you for sharing what you have so far, and we hope to hear more from you soon.
