Here is a big 'ol 120" DaLite Matte White Electrol Retractable in San Diego, ensconced in a Hacienda-like home in Rancho Sante Fe
It was a "original formula" Silver Fire 2.0, "Dusted" on using a lowly old original Wagner Control Spray a-way back in 2009.
The home was one of those +$4 Mil jobs, with the Furniture in the Formal Living Room
costing as much as many peoples yearly salary, so the decision to paint the Screen "inside" was not one I made lightly. Fur Shur....if I had been using a Tank/Hose/Gun HVLP Rig, it would not have happened, nor would I have considered Rolling it (Silver Fire) on since that would have been inadvisable.
As shown, the Walls & Ceiling where a bright Flat White, but fortunately the Ceiling as 12' high
and the Side Walls were a good 3' & 5' away on each side of the Screen, so there was little chance of any adverse re-directed reflected light from the PJ to worry about washing out the screen's image.
So the first thing in order of doing was to liberally mask off the area where I was going to temporarily hang the Screen with chains (...eventually the Screen was located behind a built-out section of Crown Molding...) so it would be low enough to effectively reach without a walkway platform.
I covered the strange, skinny Clock, but not the Stone Hearth or Picture, knowing that the "Maid" would dust them off.
However, you betcha a draped every piece of Floor Furniture....
......and every bit of the $150.00 yard Carpet!!!
BTW, that is a Epson 1080UB a'hangin' way up there at 17' away from the Screen
Let the coating commence! (...sorry, no Video, but it was a standard "Duster" procedure w/no primer applied beforehand...) You will note that I taped over the Black Surround using Painter's Blue Tape, then I taped over it again and attached the outside edges of the Screen to each side of the 10' case opening.
Final Coat after drying.....and under "Flash" conditions
Side shot w/Flash taken from 2' away from the left corner.....
So how'd it turn out?
You tell me......., (note: Screen is now hung at proper height)
When I was done, I simply gathered up the thin plastic (9' x 12' sheets of .7 mil ) into a wad, picked up my "Wagster", and faded off onto the Beaches, where I consumed mass quantities of Anchor Steam Beer and contemplated the wonders of "String" theory as they walked by.
The Universe is a wonderful place to be....leastwise when your at the beach.
