Hello all! It's been awhile!
I'm loving my new Sony HW40ES PJ on my DIY silver/grey reflective cloth screen. But think this fantastic PJ deserves a top quality screen like the Silver Fire v2.5. Maybe a 3.0 hue for mixed use daytime closed curtains and dark room night time?
None of the listed ingredients are available here, so I'm hoping to create a reasonable copy (MM face palms and sighs "not again?"
) using locally available products. I do have extensive painting and color mixing experience and this HVLP rig.
My questions: are the 4 colorant ingredients meant to 'fix' the non neutral mix that results from the viscosity and reflective ingredients? Why aren't they used/needed in RS-MaxxMud
I am starting with Beger Matte Polyurethane
(water based) and Beger Matte 'white' Base A
. This base is used for pastel colors and I believe it is more neutral than Bear UPW.
My 'silver' is a glaze based Nippon Momento Special Effect paint, called Cloud Pearl
, tinted with lamp black to a color called CP182 Falling Star, about an N8 hue, but silvery and opaque. Lower right on this chart.
I think (hope?) this stuff is something lke the sterling silver and white pearl from the recipe when already combined.
If my assumption (note the first three letters...) on the silver/pearl is correct, I should combine:
1 part flat white
4 parts silvery cloud pearl
1.5 parts Matte Poly
1.5 parts water or more to taste
MM, any advice? So far am I ontrack for a Thai Silver Fire copy or a Thai RS-MaxxMudd? I guess what I'm really hoping for is some moral support, because I think the only way to judge this mess is mix-n-test, mix-n-test, right?
Little Pebble, I don't think shipping paint all the way across the Paciifc is going to be cost effective.
