Painted screen for Sanyo PLV-Z3000

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am painting a screen in my newly finished basement, I need help.

My PJ is a Sanyo PLV-Z3000

Specs:
Resolution HD (1920 x 1080)
Brightness 1200 lumens
Contrast Ratio 65000:1
Uniformity 85%
No. of Colors Full color
Aspect Ratio(s) 16:9

Screen size: 102-110"

Seating is 15' away, pj is ceiling mounted at about 16.5'

The space is not a dedicated theater room, although ambient light is 95% controllable. I would also the to be able to have some lights on for parties, gaming & the big game (although in Cincinnati, that may never come... LOL)

I would like to keep the formula as simple (and inexpensive) as possible, as I usually have to do DIY projects twice. I have Lowe's, Home Depot and Michaels all available locally.

I will be spraying the paint over light brown (which was also sprayed, ie very smooth)... primer? Also, what influences viewing angle? FYI, I will be trimming the screen in 3" Screen Flok.

Thanks in advance for your time, you guys have really invested yourselves in this board!! THANK YOU!!

I'm a newb, so N7 to N8 gray (Behr SS?)... what does the poly do? What about some pearl-somethingorother?
