Bob,


You should try searching on the screen forum.

There have been some DIY screen paint enthusiasts who have devoted a lot of time and effort researching this and posting their conclusions there.

Now after seeing both Mark Hunter and Dean McManis say they like how the LT150 performs with their Grayhawks I'm anxious to see what a gray screen can do. And I imagine others are thinking the same thing.


But before we go all out and make a sizable investment in a Grayhawk I think it would be wise to experiment with a makeshift gray screen to see how we're going to like it. I have a suitable piece of material to paint. But I'm hoping the screen gurus out there can suggest an off the shelf paint (brand and color) to use.

Robert-

This paint works great-even on lower powered projectors-and you will like that it was a very inexpensive can of paint. The brand is Long Life and it is an exterior latex-called Cape Cod Gray. It is manufactured by Yenkin-Majestic Paint Corporation, Columbus Ohio. Hope this helps-let me know the your results if you try it--

Hi Lenny,


Thanks, that's exactly what I was hoping for. I'll try to find that brand and color. If that brand isn't available to me do you think "Cape Cod Gray" will be a standard color that might be available in other brands?

Thanks, Lenny. That's very kind of you. I'll call around tomorrow to see if I can find it. If not I'll email you (since it's worked for you it will be better than me trying to guess at a suitable color).
