Obviously people have been reading myposts on screen painting. The product is ready to roll.
If the paint used is properly prepared, rolling works almost as wella s spraying. The differences can be minimal, if you thin properly.
Stay away from paints that need floetrol as an additive. It screws up the mixture, to a high degree.
Stick to paints that need just water as a dilutant and thinner. MUCH better results. The problem is that most people who experiment on this forum with creating a screen have very little in the way of professional or large levels of exopsure to screen types, or painting results with many mxitures.
So, one screen made by yourself can be fine, but in the context of the greater level of prduct available, does not nessessarily mean the best out there, by a long shot.
So, your rave review of your first scren may not be your same feelings in a year, after youhave had time to assess the results and weigh it against many other options. Then again, it may hold up! Just be wary of your own bias. I am always watching mine.
