Mississippi Man here,
The short, straight scoop.
Whilst toiling away in Canuck land, preparing for the official Light Fusion debut at the '04 Canuck PJ & Scr4een Shootout", I have been thinkin' uf ya'll.
Today I whipped up a 4' x 8' "Silverscreen" piece of 1/4" Hardboard. It will get "sizing up" honors right along with the Vutec Silverstar, the Stewart GreyHawk, the DaLite HC, the Stewart Silverhawk, the Carada HC, and of course, Light Fusion.
All of the above attempt to enhance contrast, with some actually purporting to do so along with increasing gain. Tomorrow will see claims separated from truths. The Silverscreen paint looks good on the board, so I expect it will get better than a passing grade. Pretty nifty if it does 'cuz $9-$11.00 of paint on a wall that does a great job always makes me tingle. That's where my original roots lie anywho.
The lighter shade of grey, and yet the lack of luster bodes well for the SilverScreen. There should not be the degree of attenuation of luminosity that other darker HC hues result in. And the screen I sprayed is as featureless and as smooth as it can possible be. (....considering I painted it outside, propped against a wall, with Canadian leaves and twigs blowing about!)
Anyway Troops, I hope my efforts does the Paint proud, and once again, credit goes to Bcortez for bringing it to my attention just in time to throw a wet blanket on some Heavy Hitters in the Screen Mfg genre.
But if it aces out Light Fusion, I'm never talkin' ta ya'll agin.
Stay tuned. Might post tomorrow night late, but more probably late Sunday after my return home.
PS....See how I commandered Mandarax's PC? Pretty nervy, eh?
