My search-fu is broken, dead and gone. I can't seem to find much about Australian options for painting or anything else really for that matter.

I am hoping to do a N8.5 screen with silver metalics and polyurethane. I am going to spray onto a 3mm MDF board covered in Melamine (smooth white surface). I considered just using the melamine with a coat of matt acrylic like others on this forum (search-fu did find some things!). But I really need the ambient light rejection, as I live in a rental with light cream walls, curtains and everything else, though my only source of ambient light is reflection from the screen. Going to make an approximately 90" screen.

I have managed to track down the ICI color codes for N8.5 to take into Dulux. But I don't know what silver metalics or poly to look for here in Aus?

Has anyone used this solution successfully in Australia?

Thanks a heap!

Most Aussies wanting reflective "Metallic" content acquire them via incoming shipped requests from the US / Europe.

One N8.5 screen is going to do your desires any favor. At 90" you should be considering a Mix containing both Pearl and Silver and Polyurethane.

As to whatever else is / would be needed, well....please relate your PJ selection, and as to if your Throw Distance is set...or can be allowed to be maximized. ( short as possible...) depending on what you have and really need / want, we can get you hooked up with exactly what your circumstanced demand. Exactly.

If ambient light performance that really matters is important, don't send a Boy to do Man's Work. Go that little extra mile and never look back to where you've been.

You don't want to anyway. It's a dark, dull, dismal place.
