That look really good! Many have spoken about painting an entire wall with SF before, but I really cannot remeber many who actually got'ter Dun!

I just built a 120" screen, wood frame with some fabric stretched over it. I plan on painting it, but I just hung it up and noticed that I can see some of the wood structure through the cloth with the projector shining on it. I'm hoping that when the screen is painted with SF, it won't be visible, but I wanted to check here first just in case, rather than paint it and have to remove the fabric and fix it after painting the fabric.

If the Fabric is not touching any of the Frame's central supports, no worries. If the Fabric is slightly transparent, then almost certainly a correctly applied surface of SF will be opaque enough to cover.

Chose the answer best suited because from your description it would seem your a bit unclear as to if the material itself is slightly transparent under lighting, or simply touching the rear supports.

Thanks for the reply. The fabric is touching the frame, but it also seems to be slightly transparent when there is light on it. Should I take the fabric off and add something to keep the fabric off of the frame?

Yes, some Flat, 1/2" Door Stop is all you should need, attached around the perimeter. Then be sure to pull the Fabric tight and even across the frame.

Thanks again. I'll head out and pick something out, also, probably going to pick up this gun. http://www.homedepot.ca/product/cont...sprayer/939822 Unless you know of a reason I shouldn't. Thanks again for your help!

  • The double duty spray gun puts out far too much paint to be effective at doing dusters.If a Wagner is to be used it should be to original Wagner control spray

I've attached door stop to the perimeter of the frame, and the fabric is still transparent enough to have the frame reflect some of the light. It's less noticeable now, but I can still see it in bright scenes. But you're saying I should be good when I paint? Should I try painting the frame black? Or is that pointless because I'm planning on painting the screen?

Sorry for all the questions, and thanks again.

No problemo on the queries.....just sitting here wondering.

What type of Fabric are you using? It would seem that anything that is so thin and transparent as to allow that much light to pass through would also not be very conducive to accepting a painted coating.

Probably should have asked the question above before this....and also this one: Is this a acoustically transparent screen application with a Center Channel going behind?

"IF" your using Spandex, the normal method employs 2 layers, not one. Also, some DIY'ers have taken the additional step to paint the Cross supports a Flat Black.

"IF" your using something other than Spandex, I'd be interested to know.

I'm not exactly sure what I'm using to be honest, it's a kind of stretchy fabric with a rubbery side that is commonly used for babies change tables. It was on sale because it was the end of the roll so I just assumed it would work. Probably a bad idea.

But it isn't acoustically transparent, or isn't meant to be. There aren't any holes in it.

If the "Rubbery" side has the smoothest side, then that would be the side I would opt to paint upon.

It isn't the smoothest side, but it's not too bad.

Is there another type of fabric you'd recommend, either to replace or put underneath the fabric I currently have?

Nothing going "under" would be as effective as simply getting / using something ideally suited.

Here it is:
FlexiWhite Projector Screen Material

Order it to come "Rolled" to avoid creases.

Otherwise, simply put 3/4 very light dusted coats of a Pure White paint on the opposite side of the current material, and also paint the central framing members white.

Great. Thanks for all the help. I'll be sure to come bother you with more questions when I get ready to paint the screen.

A wise and important step, as it's always best to recheck application methods and your materials in hand against known values and qualities before you whip out your tool and start squirting.
