the reporter. This is rather demonstrative, don't you think?

Yep, last one for now. Anybody like the improvement?

..............wwwhat?

The lady's black coat looks so black, you can imagine the touch and feeling of the Felt

Looks like the improvement your seeking is pretty darn close, CMRA.

Wish you were more prompt with you revelations, as I have only a limited time here to "split screen" and then decide on what formula to leave them with on the wall by tomorrow eve.

OK, now we're all intrigued. What the heck are you using? And don't say it's an UPW panel! These look like my original ME+ shots, only the brightness is even better with exactly the same blacks - so overall CR is improved dramatically.

PLEASE. I feel like I'm in the latter part of a Gallagher show when he goes into his Sledge-O-Matic routine. "Don'tcha wanna know what the hell it is!"

Does anybody have a link to split-screen shot(s) of images on ME against UPW or BO material?

OK, CMRA. WHAT GIVES? Your timing couldn't be better. I am going to do another coat of something over my ME/ME+ split screen soon. Assuming the portions of your recently posted pics that are lighter, brighter and yet still with good CR are the "Deluxe" version of ME ..........SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD! So I can try it this weekend!

CMRA, you got it son! So how much AL dust did you put in?
post #249 of 853
I'm not through yet. I'm still playing Igor down in the basement.
Anyway, here are some SSs from Moulin Rouge. ( Yes, for comparison purposes) Keep in mind, these were zoomed in, unlike the last, and SDE is noticible.

Here's Harry again. Not so telling, except for the whites in his shirt.

Interesting posts....now if he could give us a formula for the weekend we could all be stuck making changes this weekend.

Here's Satine. The earlier capture of this image wasn't worth posting. It really was too blue. This may pass muster.

post #254 of 853
Satine again. Perhaps this image is the most telling of all. Blacks don't seem to suffer much and skin tones look more natural to me.

post #255 of 853
We're convinced already. Instead of another screen shot how about a forula?
post #256 of 853
I meant formula.
post #257 of 853
I personally think you can see more difference in the shots you posted earlier, not these new zoomed in ones. Im very intersted in your new formula as well. It may cause me to paint over my "folkstone" screen, which pure ME never has.

CMRA--

I'm losing track here a little. Which variety is on the panel in the middle?

post #259 of 853
CMRA,
Your new deluxe formula looks great and much better than the ME in the side by side SS. But I am confused now about ME. You have provided several SS in recent weeks that show ME to be a great screen. Colors are rich and lifelike. But in the many SS you posted today your ME looks poor, dull, and bluish. Not at all like ME of yesterweek.

I've never seen ME look so bad. Is it because you recalibrated to ME Deluxe? Can you explain why ME now looks so bad?
post #260 of 853
CMRA,
Okay, we all give What is that darn formula? I see something that might even help us CRT users and I would like to jump on it to try it out!

I'm not sure it does. That's the whole purpose of the redos. For compaison with my previously posted screen shots as well as what you see at home. You do compare these to what you see on your screens at home don't you?
Keep in mind, the camera makes a best guess on white balance every time, so yes it's important to look at 'yesterweeks' shots too to make sure, don't you think?

CMRA, Quit stalling son. we'all want to know what your running with, because those dogs will hunt!

Here is new "GOLDEN UTOPIA" formula also known as "PHOTOILLUSION", that is, yes, you are thinking right , contain real gold dust , diamond dust , and platinum.
The screen below has ME on the left and very right edge, CMRA "magic formula" in the middle and new simple magic formula on the right to it. Very simple DIY solution , cost of materials is $299.99. Enjoy.

Many of us think that $20 for the Behr Silver Metallic is steep. $299.99...wow. Nice SS but $299.99...wow.

Question,
I have made four samples for screens. My existing screen (Silver-Gray Gesso), ME, ME+, and ME++ except I used: 30%-Glaze; 30% SM; 20% each base and ME.

The ME looked the brightest but I felt the whites really looked blue and the blacks weren't as good as my gesso screen. The ME+ wasn't as bright but the blacks weren't as good as my gesso. The ME++ had by far the best blacks but the overall image was too dark for my taste. What would be the best to introduce into ME++ to increase the brightness? I was thinking either more glaze or irridescence.
Thanks,
Jason

P.S. My current screen is emarc's silver-gray gesso.

CMRA doesn't have a 'magic formula'. I should know, I'm CMRA. Until today I have only touted Glidden's ME (out of the can) and posted some experimental screens shots with Scoob's ME+ which didn't work favorably with me.

That aside, that 'Golden' goodness looks good. Alas, one screen shot does not tell the whole story. I may approve of my redheads with the golden look, but I want my monsters to look like monsters and fish to look like fish.
Please post more screen shots SAP.

Just when everyone thought it was safe to go back into the water...

Igor, that's me, couldn't resist experimenting more. (One idea leads to another-you know how that works)

Without fanfare, here's "Super Deluxe" it's the image on the upper right 11" by 20" board next to the familiar "Deluxe" original. I'm still tinkering, but I believe I can be happiest with this. See if you agree.

$299.00...bah!

Very nice!

Now: Post the formula!

post #269 of 853
Here's 'super deluxe' again. Look for the 11x20 plank over Satine's left eye-right eye to you and me. BTW, the plank beneath that is a 'deluxe' varient. Deluxe is the board to the left. All rest atop the original ME screen.

Methinks CMRA is torturing us on purpose...
