There seems to be a lot of experts on DIY screen paint mixtures. Was wondering if you could give me some help...I have an Epson Home Cinema Powerlite 8350...throw distance of 12 ft for optimal performance (I'm told) on a 120" screen. Theater is in the basement with controlled light (dimmer switches on can lights)...as of now I'm projecting onto my concrete basement wall...I texture all of the walls except for the 120' diagonal space...they projection wall is dark brown the other walls are lighter brown and a darker blue...there isn't any carpet just colored concrete (darker shades)....the ceiling is white now but debating on painting it black if it will help. I smoothed over with sheetrock mud to cover the small holes on the concrete wall where the screen is being projected....I was going to buy a fixed screen but I have crazy cats and think they may tear it up so I've decided I should probably mix my own...I've seen maxmudd and silverfire and I'm not sure which is the best one for my setup. Also I'm unsure if I should paint the wall and make a 1X4 border and glue felt to it or use sintra board or possbily a mirror...was wondering the benefits of using a mirror...logically it seems like it would be flat not sure if the reflective surface would do anything since it would be painted....also I live in Kansas City and was wondering where I could purchase Sintra board or something else that might work...was thinking that would work better than directly on the wall in case my house eventually settles and I get a crack or something? What do you guys think? I would be greatful for any helpful hints...thx again !
