Hi every body smile.gif

I seen how HQ screen looks like - fading white/black theory !!


and i could say the way is chameleon paint - so its dark when needed and bright with the second tone combining each other for best result !!
Of course there are some degrees they achieve with chameleon pigments on HQ screen ..

anyway has someone try out the chameleon paint (w/b) as a screen rolleyes.gif


any suggestion ....

THANKS

ALL RIGHT tongue.gif

what about this....

apply matte dark gray mix with silver(aluminum)
and then (dried)
just matte clear with very little white(pearl) mix it as a whitish soft top coat spray !!
Or vice versa !!!

tell you guys something cracking my mind biggrin.gif

anyways all i wanna do is to bring down something brings out a HQ solution paint. cheap and easy to make !!
i knew silver fire v2 is a great formula paint screen - but that does not stopping me getting a better results ..
and every body can enjoy it wink.gif

you can try this :

bring any dark gray piece (reflective better) and one soft napkin
put the napkin on the dark surface (covering)
drop some water slowly - so the napkin stick on the surface (wet) giving white/dark background !!
compare it to your screen and see the results with ambient lights on before its dry out wink.gif

Silver Fire is a true DIY paint solution...from the "get go". And who's to say....even you... that any results you get from anything else "paint wise" are better?

Using a dual layer paint solution is very old news.Silver Metallic- MississippiMudd (SM-MM) kinda predates the effort above, as well as most every Mfg offering that uses a similar approach, by a good 8 years. Of course you'd be hard pressed to know or realize that, being as new as you are.

But If your showing the same Mfg. Screen paint you wrote about before, then this Forum is NOT the place to do so. That should have been made quite obvious seeing that the other Thread was moved to "Screens"...so please respect both the rules and values we hold to on this DIY Screen forum.

Go to the links provided here and read about the original idea that no doubt led to the Mfg version.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/359152/metallic-silver-mississippimud-screen-intructions

http://www.avsforum.com/search.php?search=SM-MM

Afterwards, if you want to try a true DIY version...one that will cost less than a Mfg paint...post up such a request and you'll be welcomed into the fold. cool.gif

Thank you!

.......and BTW...Silver Fire, and it's precursors MississippiMud SE (Silver Edition) - RS-MaxxMudd - used either separately or combined with Light Fusion, all aspire to do the same thing, but each differently and to different end results...all dependent upon the "SPECIFIC" needs of the End User. Simply put, those DIY applications offer an almost infinite adjust-ability you cannot...and will not find elsewhere...at any cost.

Thanks a lot Mr MississippiMan

i am not showing Mfg paint at all !! ( nothing to do with my old thread PLZ delete it if you wish )
its all about the idea with pigments used on chameleon paint to get color fading like HQ Mfg screens !!
and i am not giving up about testing chameleon paint as a screen.

dual layer paint i didn't know its already there ..
and the second layer i meant is a white Transparent coat !!
next week i will give it a try and post my result if it is better then my sample ( matte gray mix little aluminum-no clear mix yet )
its all can done with DIY paint

i really respect the forum and the experience that you got - but i maybe selfish to expose my ideas to others for helping me out building my own paint
and share it here ( its difficult from my country to get SV component - its all locale am testing )
nothing specific i recommend for DIY applications
its like sharing our experience and ideas not stopping where silver fire ends !!!
don't tell me that the SV is the end of DIY paint ....

THANKS A LOT smile.gif

Crazy? No. Muddied and absorptive? Absolutely.

But experimentation has proven the Status Quo wrong before. I know...I'm guilty of that myself. wink.gif

Read up on the original "MississippiMud"

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=359152


Mississippi Mud

All paints are "Flat Intereior Acrylic Latex"

1 quart Behr Deep Base (1300)
1 quart Behr Ultra Pure White "Ceiling"
1 quart White Opal Pearlescence

You can use this mix as a 'stand alone' for DLPs, or with Silver Metallic underneath for LCDs with lower lumen & contrast ratio specs.

...and of course, for the Top Coat on all mirror applications, Glass or Plexi



It's all about Translucent White Top Coats over varied color substrates.
