Screen paint on drywall question.

My setup:
6' throw distance
14' viewing distance.
the room is light controlled - shaded windows on one side
Walls are red and the ceiling is white.

I'm using Optima GT1080 projector ceiling, mounted with 140" cheap screen from Amazon. I'm thinking there are still more improvements to be made with the picture quality. I have drywall behind the screen and I would like to paint this wall as a screen. Grey or silver screen paint mix is what I'm thinking about, to avoid losing brightness. Please give me advice on paint mix formulas, if possible.
I'm from Montreal, Canada.
Thanks.

I'm really happy with my Behr matte interior "Silver Screen" painted wall. I did sand the wall smooth before painting, and this happens to be one of the better drywall jobs in the entire house. I can now use my projector to zoom in/out for different aspect ratios and the black bars somewhat disappear as I have no solid black screen border to judge by. I had several "silver ticket" screen material samples, and compared to their light grey screen, the wall actually has a better picture with no sparkles and better viewing angles.
