Painting a Motorized Projector Screen?

Hey,

I was thinking about painting my already 1.1 Gain Matte White Electric Roll up projector screen to something like a 0.8 Gain Grey screen.

At the moment there is far too much uncontrollable light in the room so a white screen just isn't cutting it and I am NOT paying 1,000 plus for a grey electric projector screen.

Could anyone offer advice on going about something like this?

The screen size is 100 Inches Diagonal. I suppose I need a good quality low gain grey screen paint that is very flexible and won't crack / peel when the screen is rolled up.

Any advice that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.

It's possible but create a new thread here or ask a moderator to move this one:

The screen does not have to be grey, it can and should have some ALR properties to help with the ambient light.
