Hi everyone, I recently put together a dedicated home theater in a very small room, around 10' by 10' with 9' ceilings. I'm currently renting so I'd like to avoid a full blown repaint of the room if possible. Currently, I'm projecting directly onto the wall, which is painted a flat, light yellow color. Here is a quick list of the room conditions:Size:

One window in the room which currently has thick blinds and will also be covered with a curtain. There will be some ambient light during the day, however.Question:
I'm looking for help deciding on the best screen paint to use. To maximize my screen size, I'm planning to bite the bullet and spray directly onto the drywall. I may in the future look into some additional room treatments to help further (combination audio room treatment/glare reducer via velvet covered pad along the ceiling in front of the screen?) but for now am looking to maximize the image quality within my current environment. Currently, there is a lot of reflection off the wall that lights the room up on bright screens and just generally detracts from the experience. I am also holding off on a thorough color calibration until after I have a quality screen up to calibrate against.
I've been reading whenever I have time but am impatient so I started buying the mixing materials for Silver Fire from the official thread. The more I read, though, the less sure I am that I'm going in the right direction, so I thought it prudent to ask some questions:
- Is Silver Fire a good choice for my situation?
- If so, which hue is recommended?
- If not, what is a better choice?
My apologies for the noobish questions. I've been searching and reading as much as I can, but still haven't found anything that gives me confidence that I'm planning the best possible paint mixture to use. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!
