Actually, there is a good reason. The materials they choose to use combined with the way they mfg the screens in such a way to maximize profits dictates the "Value to Performance" ratio. As time goes on and they work to improve things, the price only spirals upwards...not because of any actual increase in cost of materials or mfg.'s only because they know the next generation of End Users will simply want something better than the previously unfortunate souls had to settle for. And be will ing to pay more for it as well.

The graininess (sparkles) that a BD .8 / 1.4 show illustrates that they do in fact rely overly on a underlying substrate with a profusion of reflective particles. Then...yes, they also add some sheen.

The DNP SuperNova is an example where true a multi-layered, dark reflective surface is effectively countered with a excellent Diffusion layer. It's all the difference in the world. It is the reference standard all DIY efforts should be judged by.

Is there any place I can buy all these paints online? I live in Middle East and can't get all these paints. Or does someone sell a ready mixture of it?
