I also have 2 unused liquitex silver jars, but it's about 2.5yrs old. It's not liquid, it hardened up a bit but still looks like it could be used. Should I use it or buy the Rustoleum silver?

If there was only a need for a "sample" for testing purposes, the amount of each ingredient could be divided accordingly? I don't want to waste the paint if I don't end up liking the result.

From what I understand, the flexi isn't perfectly smooth either, but it should look cleaner compared to BOC that has enough fuzz to be visible.

Would the picture be cleaner though? I have a boc right now and I do notice the fuzz, it's not bad at all since I'm using the smoother side, but wouldn't mind something better.

I have a similar issue which is on top. Light bleed in the lens itself. It's begging to be annoying since it's visible when watching movies on the black bar on top.

Trying to decide between this and Benq 1070,but read online that the Optoma hd 25 lv has more image noise. It's that true, because I didn't read anybody complaining out talking about it on here?
