I have a new HD66 on the way (great deal!). I plan to paint a 92" mdf screen. The room has grey tinted ceiling dark red walls windows with good blinds. Like to have a screen good with ambient light as with the kids they like to have some light on. Projector ceiling mount about 10' seating about 13'. I dont plan to use 3d.

I want to use a roller for this, what should i use?

1. Throw must be a minimum of 10' 8" to be safe.
2. Choose a neutral Flat Gray with a Munsel rating of 8.0
3. Be sure to prime the MDF first
4. Use a good, self leveling paint.

Thanks so much for the help!

So is this one that would be good:

~N8 DIY Tint {Dark Gray}
Quart Custom Tint
Behr UPW (1050,1850,4850)
Behr UPW (1050,1750,1850,4850)
062 Lamp Black
014 Brown Oxide
006 Medium Yellow

Gallon Custom Tint
Behr UPW (1050,1750,1850,4850)
248 Lamp Black
056 Brown Oxide
024 Medium Yellow

If so what Behr UPW do think will work best?

Thanks again.

Use Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Latex Flat Enamel 1750 "Base" tinted....

.....or Behr Ultra Pure White Premium Plus Ultra Ceiling Paint 1750 tinted.

Get a Gallon...so use the Gallon tint amounts.
