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????

I was going to get the Wagner CS with the 1.5mm tip. So that means your mix will be too wet. How much less water for a 1.5mm tip compared to a 1.0mm?

Be careful when buying the wagner control spray. I think they now come with a slandered 2.0 tip instead of 1.5 tip but i may be wrong. I know the replacement tips you can buy from gleam are only 2.0 tip now and when i was thinking about buying the Wagner CS i couldnt find a replacement 1.5 tip to buy anywhere. Try to find a refurbished graco 1900 if you need to go easy on money. You will still need to buy a 1.0 tip though for the gun. The 1.0 needle tip is different for the graco 1900 unit though. Here's a link to a previous post about the 1900 that i made:

Refurbished Graco 1900 for GREAT price!!

when i bought the 1900 from the website it had it for $49 i think but now it's gone up to $99 and you will need to look on amazon or somewhere else. I think it Will be getting little hard to find the graco, 2900, 3900 spraystation units since i believe graco has discontinued them due to there newer model the HV2901....I could be wrong on that.

Have you sprayed a Silver Fire screen with the 1900 unit?? If so, do you remember how much water you ended up using for the gun to spray properly?

I have 122" screen with a Mitsubihi HC-5 1176 hours on lamp in eco mode. Iphone 5 does not do the image justice but 1.0 tip is awesome. Simple but amazing and cheap paint
solution. In fact 20.00 in paint what a deal.

No idea on water just add till the viscosity is right.
