I have been conducting some lcd and dlp demos to try and narrow down which one is right for me. However, I have been using my 120" Stewart screen (1.8 screen gain). I have heard about some of the excellent results other forum members have been obtaining with gray screens and I would like to get an idea of what a gray screen can do for me. However, it isn't something I want to spend a ton of time or money with. I know there are ton of options out there and I was curious if there is a consensus on what is inexpensive and easy to build. I would like to build something with a strong brace support and not use anything like masonite. Is there a faq on how to easily build one of these? Is there a consensus on what inexpensive material is best to use (blackout or canvas perhaps)? Finally, is there a consensus on a good inexpensive paint to use that would ensure a decent gray screen.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
