Glad to hear of your success, DevonS. It gives me hope that I may be able to get this application right next time. I just hope I have enough mix left to get it done, how much do you think you ended up using?
Here's the setup. On top is MY solution. On the bottom is MM's.
Originally we were going to set them side by side vertically, but the 97" do-able said no to my 96" ceiling, hence we went 'grecian' style.
His screen (bottom) rests directly on mine and is clamped on both sides.
No illustration would be complete without a reference standard. In this case a human being. I really would have preferred the girl next door, but she was getting toasted elsewhere watching the Chargers redeem themselves.
I think my camera just went fubar Tried some shots and it looks like a TV channel that's only half tuned in. I'm charging batteries and cleaned the memory card. Hopefully it's not screwed. I'll get some shots up as soon as I can if it works.
Just a couple more comparo shots. The lovely though awfully grainy Naomi could light up any screen.
In future posts expect much better samples. For now, these do what needs to be done.
In the end, I found no real appreciable difference between the two screens. Both make good account what silver does.
The nod however must go to SilverHG. Not that the results were better, rather the ease of application. Simply buy a do-able board, a $60.00 Wagner, mix up some Delta Silver and Faux Glaze diluted with 25% distilled water, duster spray several coats (6) and hang.
There only appears to be light from the screen in the room. What sources of ambient light is there in the room?
The gross amount came from behind the screen. I highly recommend if ambient light is required as when watching a daytime football game, the light comes from behind the screen, as much as possible. If you insist of rewriting the laws of physics, seek out an optical DNP supernova. You are deluding yourself if you think you can achieve those results with paint.
