What are you guys using for the spandex material? Where do they sell it at?

Also do I just build a frame and wrap the spandex around the back and staple it there?

Trying to start this project before I buy my PJ.

Thanks! smile.gif

Below are links to the most popular, best suited materials.

But it would be very helpful to have you provide more details as to your project's specifications. PJ...throw....screen size...lighting....room colors, etc.

Also, there are several threads up that discuss pretty much ever aspect of building a spandex screen. Personally, I staple. Recentlt, as a offshoot coming from those who used Mfg Screen materials, the use of Screen Spline assemblies has become more common..

So a while back I bought some moleskin white and silver. Hopefully the end of this month I'll be able to get to the screen on my build. Should I order up the milliskin and not use the moleskin. I need to trim out my false screen wall with some removable panels as I have electrical panels back there. Maybe I could use the silver moleskin for that?

Use a Moleskin for whatever shade your using for the Rear. Use a Milliskin for the Top Layer.
