I have an Optoma HD25-LV in a basement room set at about 13' from the wall. At its smallest, the screen is about 93". I have a white drop ceiling and grayish walls. There will be ambient light most of the time. I'd like to paint a screen. I've lurked and read enough to know that, with all the options available, I need guidance as to surface and paint formulation to use. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried the projector out on your wall yet? It would be interesting to know how you feel it works on just your grayish walls and what you might like to see differently, performance wise.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have. I know that a screen painted with one of the formulas on this forum would likely be better than a plain grayish wall and would like to know which formulation would be suggested for my setup. It is not bad now, but I would like the picture to really stand out and I just don't think it does currently.

Silver Fire v2.5 3.0

It'll be as good as painted can get.
