Just bought an Epson 8100 and wanting to replace my WA DW screen with a gain of 1.2.
I am wanting to improve black and enhance color depth and details. There are many DIY options out there, but I chose neutral gray for a few reasons.
1) Room conditions: I have a dedicated room, with dark colors, and total light control so i don't ready need the ambient light enhancement of other diy paint mixes.
2) Cost: I like do things on a limited budget, and if I screwed up it won't be such a heartbreak to discard and start over.
3) Simplicity: What's easier then buying a can of paint and roll?
So let's start.......
4x8 6mm white Komatex $44
1 quart of Sherwin Williams unique gray paint $20
2 Purdy white dove 1/4" roller $12
2 tray liner $2
4 yards of syfrabrics triple black velvet $33 (purchased from forum member)
2 12ft pine baseboard moulding for screen borders $33
net cost ~$145
