Hello,


I have a Steward Studiotek 1.3 electric roll-up with 88" wide , 37" high and lots of black-drop.


I want to paint it at 88" X 66".


Is there any paint available for the job ???


I'm using BG 1209 in light controlled enviro.


Thanks


Frank

I don't understand--you want to paint your Studiotek screen? Mail it to me instead and I'll buy your paint!


Seriously, what are you trying to do?

YES !!!


I want to paint my Electric Steward screen.


It was inadvertently ordered with 1:2.35 aspect.


It was early version Model A; paint white on black material.


I want to change it to 4:3.


Possible ???


Thanks.

I do not think any white paint will match the exact studiotek exactly.


WHy not just return it to stewart for an exchange? If possible.

Yeah, you could sell it if Stewart won't take it back for an exchange. I'm sure it's worth a pretty penny.


One option would be side masking so you could view your 4:3 programs at 37x49.


Another option would be to use a separate pull-down for watching 4:3 material.


Just curious, do you mostly watch 4:3 stuff?

Robert, it has 3' drop.


Derrick, it's a surplus of my friend's company 3 years ago. TV program is still in 4:3 format here in HKG.

Hmmm, what's Honk Kong like these days? Haven't been there in many years.


I'm skeptical about painting the backdrop because the texture is different, and the color won't match prescicely. Also you'd need to use a paint that wont' stick to the other side of the material when it's rolled up.


I'm no paint expert, but something flexible. I'd experiment first on fabric similar to the drop and make sure you're happy with it. :)
