I am still reasonably new to the world of front projection (Panny 300u), but like every other aspect of my home theater, I’m always trying to find ways to improve it. I was extremely happy with my DIY Parkland screen at first, but as I watch more and more, I find myself wanting to do something about the black (…gray :( ) level.


Has anyone actually used a gray or silver paint right on top of their Parkland screen? If so, how did it work. I would definitely be willing to sacrifice a bit of brightness to make up for these grayish blacks.


Thanks! David

Do a search. The answer is, yes, people here have sprayed goo systems or rustoleum right onto the plastic and the results have been very positive.


This is exactly what I will be doing myself in about 2-3 weeks.

I've sprayed my parkland and I'm very happy with it. I used Glidden Universal Grey from HD. It's a very light shade of grey. I sprayed on three very light coats using a HVLP spray system I have. The paint was thinned and I added Flotrol to get a better surface. Painting it this way added almost no texture.


I'm extremely pleased with the results and don't believe spending the extra $'s on a Firehawk or equivilant would have been worth it.
