Hi, im trying to acheive very good quality blacks on my BenQ620p, It is a very bright projector (2200Lumens) So a high gain screen is not neccasary, What paint mix would I be best off using? Also Whats Poly? and what pearl essence should I be using?. Im from Australia so if you could list big name brands it would be appreciated.

Don't discount Gray Screen... excellent blacks, whites and over all color balance.

I was thinking of Using a white Ultra Flat paint (British Paints) and having it mixed grey. Then Adding Poly, Pearl, And Silver... Except I dont know what Poly, Pearl and silver are :S.

There is a thread below in my signature you can read if you are interested in my thoughts on how to get better blacks from a high lumen projector.

The addition of poly, silver, metallic etc cause directional gain. If you have enough lumens to start with these items wont add a lot IMO. Things like lampblack in paint mixes absorb light both ambient and projected and that's how they work to let us see perceived blacks. They also add slight color pushes to the screen that may or may not have to be dealt with.

More info in the thread below and others dealing with neutral grays will help you.
