Hi, Ddog. What is the estimated gain of your screen formulation? Thanks.

Richum, that looks pretty good to me. Though, I have seen some people using some Clear Flat Base in their silver coat... not sure whats up w/ that. I didn't use it. Joe says it makes the blacks a bit deeper at the expense of reducted whites.
Things you probably know, but didn't explicitly state:
- if in doubt, check to be sure you are not low on paint in your sprayer.
- if not in doubt, check anyway. (splatter from getting low on paint is the most common problem I have seen).
- let each coat dry about an hour before applying the next coat.
- I would probably put each coat a different direction (1 horiz, 1 vert, 1 diag).
Joe/Ddog: When I made my screen all I did was -- 2 coats KillZ, 3'ish thin coats of Silly/Ddog formula. In my case, I used 40% metallic silver, 40% glaze, 20% white. That was it. So, I am missing the ultra pure white coats, and my white is pretty high on my top coat. You wanna take a guess at how my screen has suffered?
I am pretty damn happy w/ the way my screen looks, but hey -- I could always be happier, right? :)
