If you can spray the primer, you should because besides the smoother application with no risks of Roller Marks or ridges, it give you practice for the Screen paint to come....getting use to the Gun, the Duster Spraying technique, and how thin paint the paint needs to be to exit the Gun and produce the desired 10" to 12" tall Vertical Pattern
Wanted to give some comments about what I ended up doing...and the result.
What I did:
1 gallon Benjamin Moore Matte
2 Quarts Rustoleum Pearl
1 Quart RustOleum Ultimate Polyurethane (Matte)
Then got this mix custom tinted / matched to Pebble Grey by Benjamin Moore
I primed my wall - with a roller - 2 coats.
Then spay 2 coats with the mix pebble gray and painted the whole wall.
Result is GREAT, actually better than my outdoor Elite screen. Better black. Better contrast. Less reflection on my white walls / ceilings.
Thank you all guys for your help, especially MM.
Now I need to upgrade the projector :-)
