so 16oz poly matte is uniform regardless of the sheen of the paint itself at this point so with matte being a higher sheen than the flat UWP is acceptable? i have not began to source product yet but within the next 15-45 days i will be doing this for sure. BTW i am astonished at the markup of amazon's prices over menards thank god i have 5 menards within 50 miles of me. (for the rust-oleum)

What is the darkest one can go with SF without diminishing returns? i see recommendations of 3.0 how dark before SF exhibits issues with cone/contrast/grain/gain 100" 2000 Lumen MAX optimized at 1200(calibrated) and being from 9-10' away from screen BenQ W1070 if that helps. Still wrapping my head around everything If you cannot tell im a newbie to this

I've been in Houston for the past 3 months... and no Menard's in sight...i'm lost! It's much nicer to find a quart of Rustoleum metallic on the shelf...sometimes as little as 18.99 on sale.

the rustolem ultimate matte poly (water-based) is the flattest available sheen on market and works extremely well at cross-linking the entire mix together and keeping it at a near ultra flat.

as for deepest shade...generally you can to a 6.0 without considering any alterations.
