Velvet around border?

I've got a pretty good idea on how to set up the frame, but I'm a little stumped about how to put on the Black Velvet around the border. Do you guys wrap the border before you attach the screen to it or afterword?

Re: Velvet around border?

Hey Mech,

For 5 years now, I have been using a screen with no black velvet or borders, and the image filling the whole screen. I haven't had much issues...since I watch in a dark room...

The question I have is...can I just use a black flat paint for a border ??? I just painted my screen with Henry based BW, and I also bought some Valspar flat black 43777 to make a border...Will hat work ??

Re: Velvet around border?

Yup...came from AVS.. Harpmaker told me why that information has not been updated...I followed it and bought the Henry since I thought buying a gallon would give me lots of options....instead of the 8 Oz AAA for about the same price....

In one year...when the color shifts, is it too obvious for some one without a colorimeter ? I asked Harp if I can repaint with the Henry mix again, and he said maybe...

We are reconfiguring our HT and one day we may paint the wall and at that time I may follow the AAA or any other newer inventions fro you guys...
