If you really want it, just go to your local hardware store and have them make up a quart of paint with the following formula:

Lamp Black: 0 5 0 (meaning that it has 0 ounces, 5/48ths of an ounce, and 0/96ths of an ounce of lamp black)
Thalo Green 0 1 0

Now, if the Aussies use a different system, say metrics, then we'll have to convert the formula. Should be relatively simple. Just find out how the Aussies mix paint. Do they add pigment in milliliters (ml)?

You would also need to find if the Aussies use the same color pigments ... I think they do.

All of that said, personally, I don't know why you would want it. I tried it and it threw all of my color balance off to too much blue.

Thanks for the info mate.
Thought i'd like to give it a go as it seems to be the color on everyones
lips at the moment.

Me personally have gone with a colour called "Grey Moon" for my DIY
screen. It has really enhanced black levels but has left whites and
other colors untouched (from what i can see)

wot projector are you running? I am running a standard X1 with no mods or filters.
Cheers
