I am very new at this , I would like to know the best paint to paint the walls with to project on to. Could I make a screen out of 12mm mdf and paint it.
Thank you

Hi John,
Its me VR AUDIO SYSTEMS again.
DONT use the bare MDP please...............If you want there are 2 home made considerations I have made........

1. use mate white formica and laminate it to at leat a 1/2" thick piece of MDF.

2. if a HOME DEPOT is availabe to you go to idea 3

3.HomeyD sells a KILLER drop cloth. It is raw canvas on the back and it is sealed, the front is this AWSOME mate white material BETTER then any projection screen I have ever seen. The drop cloth has a seem in the center but dont panic. There is enough material to make 2 100" 4:3 screens from 1 cloth. (I am using this my self) We have compaired it here on the forum and trust me it REALLY is better then a lot of screens on the market. The picture is very detailed and the color is excelent.

REMEMBER: home depot.......painters drop cloth 9 X 12 foot canvas. It is slightly gray on the back may have some black streakes nut the front ( screen side) is BAD ASS. its in a poly bag with blue lettering it sells for under 20 bucks.

This WILL work better then any paint over the counter!!! and it is way less work

Any chance you have a SKU or UPC number on that item? It would make purchasing it easier and take out the guess work of shopping at the notoriously horrendous customer unfriendly place.

Vic C 04-06-2001 07:01 PM

I actually do have the SKU# it is :076063824006 it sells for $18.97

I hope you can find one and use it. It works awsome for my SONY CRT

Where is the seam in this cloth? On the 12 foot or 9 foot side?

Just curious, I have already purchased curtain blackout fabric from www.joann.com (purchased from a local Joann's Fabric in Atlanta) but I wanted to know more.
I went by Home Depot some time ago and did see a drop cloth that fit this description.

I wonder what's the difference between these two drop cloths from Home Depot?

The screen is a poly drop cloth, white - Home depot, 20 bucks.


Vic C 04-09-2001 06:45 PM

BRZEZ, The seem runs dowm the center horozontally 12"

If you cut the cloth using it as a guide there is enough material to make a 100" 4:3 screen http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

I dont know what the differance would be? I guess you could say the finish is a type of butile rubber? I am not sure. It is KICK ASS for a PJ screen though!!! http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

A warning about the home depot drop cloth. Not all samples have the seam down the middle. I grabbed one and it has two seams instead of one, creating 3 panels about 49 inches by 9 feet... but at this price, who cares? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
