130" Diagonal 2.39:1 Silver Fire v2.5 1.0 Drywall Screen

Today will see the prep work (...Sanding Primer...Perimeter Tape-off...) and the spraying of a Dedicated Theater Screen. The room will be wholly Light Controlled, with 4 - 4" Cans w/Spot Lamps on a Dimmer.

Projector is a Panasonic AE 8000u set at 14' throw, and there will be just one row of 6 seats.

A full compliment of photos and painting Videos will be forthcoming from this effort, although Screenies will have to wait about 3 weeks down the road as the room involved has no finish paint on the Walls or Ceilings, nor any Carpet. That's the way I like it....no need for any Plastic Tent or Masking around the Screen. Just spray, cover with protective Plastic, and skedaddle and wait.

This was a nail bitter...the Drywall Finishers and Painters took a long time getting the room ready for my effort, and in two days I'm off to Chicago to see two Pro Soccer matches (Tottingham vs Chicago Fire and Liverpool vs Olympiacos ) with my old Soccer playing pals. If they (painters) had not made the schedule I would have had to mask the entire room if I returned next Tuesday to find the room painted in Peppercorn....a very deep shade of neutral Gray.

I'll have most of my Images / Videos up tonight.

OK...first up, a description of the Room:

16 feet deep x 21 feet wide with 9' Ceilings
Screen Wall has 146" wide x 12" deep Inset with 54" Sides





1 Door
No Windows
Recessed Equipment Rack with Rear Access via Closet



The Screen Dimensions are 120" x 50" .........Taped Border is 121" x 51"



So let's paint'er up.

A humble note: I somehow forgot how to use my Timer "and" press the right button for starting a Video, resulting in two timed "snapshots" instead of my first quick Duster and 2nd normal Duster.

BTW....The Graco Gun Assembly is using a 1.0 mm Needle / Nozzle and a adapted Hose that allows me to use a Wagner Control Spray Max as my turbine unit. I have the output on the Turbine set to Maximum, and the output on the Gun dialed back 25%

So this first Video, which shows me applying a 3rd Coat, is being done as a quick Duster so that Folks can see the speed and distance involved.

And this "4th Coat" is done in the normal speed....but still essentially a "Duster"


http://vid586.photobucket.com/albums...ps61d1bbf7.mp4

One last Video....the 5th Coat (...there were a total of 7...) where i went at a speed of 2' per second...the slowest I can recommend, and made possible by the use of the 1.0 needle and it's finer Mist-like spray.

Here is my best'ist Friend.......a 20" Pole Fan that allows me to hasten dry times between coats to 15 minutes on average....20 at most.



That is pretty much all for tonight....., Tomorrow AM I will cover the Screen with protective Plastic so the painters can paint out the room in SW's Peppercorn. Below is an example of such:

Heading up to Chicago in 7 hours for a long weekend watching Pro Soccer. PM if any help or advice is needed...otherwise, I'll be returning to the Threads on Tuesday the 29th.

Great to see you still at it and helping people, MississippiMan! I took your advice and built a screen years ago and it is still functioning well--with the mixture of ultra pure white, Home Depot specialty silver paint and the pearl white. Thanks and nice to see you doing this.

Yes, it was the famous Mud. Originally I had the sanyo. Now I have the Viewsonic Pro8100. Thinking about a 3D projector but none in my family likes it as much as I do. May be someday. Thanks again.
