A little advice....when spraying translucent paints, you must depend upon consistent positioning and speed...not visual approximations.
As such, maintaining exact speed, distance, and overlap are all essential.
Here is a Image you can use as a benchmark for the level of performance you want / need to reach for. Or surpass.
Something related to your own efforts to make note of: At CEDIA
this year coming up, Elite
is joining the fray with their own version of a selective, Filter-Based High Gain-High Contrast Ambient Light Screen. "DarkStar".
- 1.4 Gain
- 0.3 mil Thick
- Designed to be utilized in both a Fixed and Retractable Format.
- A surface coating that diffuses light to eliminate Hot spotting, glare and artifacts.***
Sounds a LOT like the old Dyna Clear, and probably is based on similar tech, but the supposed 1.4 gain puts it way above the latter, and shows the intent to knock heads with SI Black Diamond screens.
certainly isn't the most expensive outlet to acquire a Screen from, they are not a "Mustang" priced venture either, so price will certainly factor in as well as the purported performance.
So get Crackin New Design ! The Clock is tickin' and the Woif is at the Door!
Just posted the above and took a gander at your results...which BTW look very good and show more than a little promise.
I see the potential to create Gray-based metallic Screen paint mixes with gain levels that reach upwards into the 4.0 range, and be able to throtle back tendencies toward Hot Spotting and Granularity issues.
Looking forward to your "reveal" as to the source of this material. Hopefully that will come soon, as there are many who deserve to give it a go as soon as it is deemed ready for Prime Time.
Looks like your efforts are drawing a bead on that 'ol Wolf.
Go on...hang his Pelt on the Wall!
