G'day Tiddler (or anyone else?)
Thanks for your terrific "Guide to DIY Painted screens
Being very new to this (and extremely
time-starved), I'm really struggling to get my head around exactly what to buy & do to get a light gray screen with recovered whites that you demonstrate in the last two pics here
From what I understand, it's a gray panel (or paint?) with some polyurethane and silver metallic added.
It's marked as "Flat gray + Poly + Pearl + Silver".
(Btw, does this combo have a compromise with viewing angle, silver speckling, or anything else?)
I'm in Australia, so I guess Dulux
will be the go.
I'm wanting to paint a 2400x1200 3mm panel of white melamine-coated MDF. The other side is straight MDF.
I mistakenly prayed on some Micador Mat Spray
to kill sheen & hotspotting, but to no effect. Hopefully I won't need to sand first before painting? If so, I'll use the other side.
You can see my room by clicking on the signature.
My room is lights-OFF when viewing and has masking. The large curtain in the photos is being replaced with a dark purple, but alas - carpet, ceiling and walls are light.
So I'm after best contrast with best ambient light rejection, wide viewing angle and no hotspots or speckling.
Thanks in advance!
