S-I-L-V-E-R is not a Ambient Light oriented Mix.

I'm moving my projector (Optoma HD72) and need to paint a new screen on different wall. My old one was Behr Silverscreen which we were very happy with. I'm thinking of doing the new screen with RS-MaxxMudd LL 2.1. The kids will use it for wii games with some ambient light and sometimes movies.

I want to roll it and it will be about 90". The RS-MaxxMudd LL 2.1 indredients are in my price range. How dark is RS-MaxxMudd LL 2.1 compared to SilverScreen?

Any other advice?

Very much lighter in the older version, but almost the same shade if you use the newer Rust'Oleum Silver Metallic and White Pearl.

My best advice would be to add an additional 8 oz of UPW to slightly lighten up the shading as well as assure a better rolling experience

Am I missing something? I've searched this thread but I don't see anything about Silver Metallic? the recipe on pg 1 of this thread says
Quote:
RS-MaxxMudd LL v.2.1
(for lower lumen pj's and controlled light home theaters)

20 oz. Rustoleum Metallic Accents - White Pearl
10 oz. Liquitex Basics Silver
12 oz. Behr 1850 Ultra Pure White - Flat

12 oz. Minwax Polycrylic - Satin finish
20 oz. distilled/tap water**
Has the recipe been tweaked in another post that I haven't seen yet?

I guess what I want is something that's cheap, rollable, the same shade of grey as silverscreen (but more neutral), and with a bit more gain. Thanks for your help.

Great.
I really didn't want to have to point out the Liquitex Silver is a "Silver Metallic".

The rustoleum stuff pushes the price out of my comfort range (I'm in Canada). Bummer.

Thanks anyway for your help.

Try Folk Art Sterling Silver and White Pearl. 2 oz bottles. Most Craft stores have 'em.

I currently have the Benq w1070 on order and am planning on an 85'' screen located about 8' away. I am going to spray some Rs-Maxxmudd, but am trying to decide between either the standard or the retro version. Ambient light is present throughout the day for tv watching, but will always be controlled for movies. It's the day viewing with ambient light that has me not wanting to go the LL route as well as the lighter colored walls. I'll have my lamp in eco mode and am a big 3d fan for movies. I am only considering the retro due to the extra gain which may help with the decreased lumen of the 3d and eco lamp mode, but due to the smaller screen and short throw is it needed? Thanks in advanced!

Also, I have gone through many of the threads throughout this forum and just love all of the support from the AVS community.

Eyeman12,

Go with the Standard RS-MM.

My question is has anyone had any success using this instead of the Rust-Oleum.

Thanks in advance.

Also, Thanks MM for guiding me to this forum.
I wasn't able to use the Rustoleum silver or pearl either since I don't have a Menards nearby and I was not going to pay $50 for each one through Amazon when the slightly older version of MaxxMudd still gives an excellent picture. If you can, go with Delta Pearl #02601 and keep with the Liquitex Basics. This is for version 2.0 as you will see in the RS-MaxxMudd V1 thread on the first page. Both are found at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. The rustoleum ingredients are for version 2.1. I am definitely not disappointed in the performance of the modified V2.1 mudd and really I wasn't expecting bad results since this is what was used not too long ago...

Hi Guys

I can't find Behr 1850. I went to a few HD's with no luck. When I asked the sales people they told me 1850 was a tint in their system. I noticed when you go to HD.com and search 1850 it comes up with 1750. Is that basically the same thing? Should I have it tinted to 1850?

Also is the Earlex still the best option for a sprayer? I have access to a pretty good compressor. Would I be better buying 1.5mm paint gun?
