    Where are you?


    Alive I hope.


    Seems a terrible way to say it.....but something seems amiss.



    Just a bit more than concerned.

    Hi ftoast,

    I came across your paint mixtures and I'm trying to find the best mixture for my situation. I have an Epson 2045 and I'm shooting for around a 98" inch screen. It will be in a basement with no ambient light but I do have dimmable lighting. I'm looking for the best black levels without sacrificing color and 3D functionality. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I'm afraid I'll have to decline shipping anything, BUT there may be a local option that could work just as well.
    Do you have any dark or tint-able water-based metallic paints that are available through hobby/craft stores or hardware/department stores or online?

    If I remember, AAA-fine is available online to Australia and I know others have used that in roll-on mixes before. It'd be like making a very dark BlackWidow mix.

    Hi Ftoast,

    The paints you use are not available in Australia. would you (for a fee) be prepared to buy them and ship to me? I am looking to build a 120 inch 16:9 screen. I was thinking of using Sintra as a substrate. do you know whether it can be rolled onto? I know MisMan uses it a lot for spraying not sure whether it works for rolling though. Thanks for all your efforts to date.

    Regards,

    Paul

    I currently own an Aaxa P300, a Barco Data 808s, an LG PA75u and a Sony MP-CL1.
    The giant crt Barco doesn't get used often.
    I've owned quite a few business and inexpensive HT lamp-based and LED models on the way, but these are the ones I liked enough to keep.

    The P300 looks great in the dark and the LG works well during the day and has excellent, smooth, bright 3D. The Sony is too dim for much over 80"-90" but has amazingly deep blacks.
