Switching first to Delta Ceramcoat Silver (my first several S-I-L-V-E-R S) and then having a few do S-I-L-V-E-R using the Liquitex certainly created lighter versions than what was the result from the Behr Faux Silver. Beyond the depth of Gray the silver imparts, as well as the concentration of Silver within the mix, it's all about the degree of translucency and the White Base behind.

If so how much water did you end up using for silver fire??
I have made both screens and S-I-L-V-E-R is a great screen for me as I have total light control and like running my JVC on eco
mode. I tried the liquitex and Martha Stewart but prefer a professional grade air brush aluminum. I used 1 quart of faux glaze,4 oz air brush aluminum and 12 oz of water applying 8 dusters. Just threw my screen away and am going to make a larger version tomorrow.
Going from 92" to 110". I will post some pics of the process. Unless Mississippi has another mix he thinks I should try????
