2.I have never done spray painting,my current screen was roll on drywall. Do I spray left to right or up and down?
Using the suggested Electric HVLP Guns, you'll find it's about the easiest skill to learn you have ever attempted. You always spray from one side to another....overlapping each preceding row by 70%. be certain that should you get to the point of spraying, you will have been provided with plenty of advice and assistance, including videos of the process in action.
,I notice the formula for rs maxxmudd is this still current and what version do you recommend and what's the difference between rs mudd and silver fire .
RS-MM is best for dedicated Theaters and/or locations where minimal or moderately low ambient light is present. It's also a Mix with a lighter shade of Gray that is easier for those who want to roll to do so.
Silver Fire is designed to combat ambient light....levels of which that would otherwise render a screen unwatchable....leastwise as far as being able to produce an enjoyable image. All iterations of SF are darker than any RS-MM save RS-MM Retro, whose "Gray" level is greater than normal due to a preponderance of additional Silver Metallic. ES-MM Retro is equal to a Silver Fire 1.5
All current SF & RS-MM formulas are version 2.5
I also measure my room today is' 9.2 high ceiling 125" wide and 18ft long any advise on position of new screen will be welcomed. Thanks a million for your expertise
110" diagonal Screen (96" x 54") centered on the 125" wall.
That is, dependent upon your room's layout and available wall surfaces...as well as the desired seating arrangements. Really....having just the room's overall measurements isn't enough information to have someone be able to provide much more than a "I hope I can hit the side of a barn" suggestion. Windows...Doors....Traffic Flow....Lighting and seating, as well as the colors of the surfaces (Walls & Ceiling) all work together to help determine the best possible Screen size, Screen color & gain, and screen location.
But be forewarned...providing such information might lead to suggestions that upend your conventional thinking....planning, and (GASP) budget. But at least you can be certain that any such suggestions and changes are rooted in the desire to make your project reap rewards that might otherwise not be possible...so there is that to consider.
