I know that I'm still a relatively noobie as far as number of posts go, but believe me, I DO read this board everyday and will be trying my hand at making a screen real soon.
First of all, I'd like to thank CMRA, MississippiMan for bringing forth the multitude of DIY screen options available to us on this forum. Without you guys pushing us "sitting on the fence" guys, we prolly wouldn't gather up the courage to try new stuff.
Well, the reason I'm posting is to ask a question about HVLP sprayers. My wife TOTALLY surprised me for X-mas this year by getting me a Porter Cable HVLP Spray Gun (Model PSH1
). I recently got a Sony HS20 and will be trying to make a "basic" ME screen next week and eventually try my hand at some "samples" of the CMRA/MM Superplex once I feel comfortable with spraying. Here are my question(s):
When spraying with a HVLP gun, how much overspray will there really be? I mean, I have a lot of my theater stuff already done (i.e., carpet, painted walls, trim, chairs, etc...), how much will I need to worry about overspray and "paint in the air" sticking to everything else in the room?
Ideally, I'd like to paint the screen in the room b/c it is upstairs and I don't like the idea of painting it downstairs in the garage then trying to get it upstairs in my room without messing it up. But if it can't be done in the room, then I'll do it that way.
I know that at the very least I will need to get all the electronic components out of the room and cover all the furniture, and put drop cloths in the direct vincinity of where I'll be painting, but I don't know if this will be enough.
Thanks again for all you guys' hard work and effort!
P.S. After seeing CMRA's SS of his new SuperPlex screen, I'm feeling even more inspired now!
