The signature was not my result, doom is my own multipurpose slang term.
AVS is the doom!
Front Projection HTs are the doom.
I used to have a signature about CRT vs DLP/LCD,....I am now projecting using a DLP (SP4805) as space would not allow my CRT (Sony 1252q)
Back on topic.
I made the mix of paints using a 1:1:1 ratio of SS, WOP, and the Faux Glaze. The result wasnt that bad actually. While the image was darker than just the plain old white hardboard, the detail and color saturation were increased.
Dark scenes showed a much increased black level...black was black.
Light scenes I could see little difference, except to my eyes, the color seemed richer and there was more detail. As I said above, it was slightly darker however.
An example of a light scene I was watching, in the two towers when Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli were riding up to the burning pile of Uruk carcasses, the trees in the background on the mountain and on the treeline had definition, and were not just a green mass.
I am going to try messing with the ratios a little bit today and also put a second coat of the 1:1:1 mix on.
I suppose this has all been done before, but its what looks good in our eyes right? Thats why its DIY..
