Re: Screen material/paint recommendation?

I'm going to practice my spraying more until I can get a good texture. Then I'll mix up a small batch of C&S with 4oz of the tinted Valspar and 4oz of Liquitex plus appropriate water and re-spray my 2' x 3' panel for comparisons.

Once/if I master spraying, I will re-spray my screen with C&S, most likely. Unless the RS-MM-LL shows a very noticeable advantage over the C&S, it is probably too expensive to re-do my whole screen again with that one. We'll see how it goes.

Re: Screen material/paint recommendation?

I am beggining to think I should just buy a manufactured screen.....

I had considered getting a sprayer and doing C&S Ultra as well, but after reading through this thread, I am a bit more nervous about trying to do my own. Will be following along to see how it goes!

Re: Screen material/paint recommendation?

Just to conclude this thread, here is the new thread I made comparing results: http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...-williams.html

Plenty of people clearly get fantastic results with spraying, but personally I found it impossible to get a smooth surface that didn't exhibit noticeable graininess in a projected image; and the hassle of setup, protecting the rest of the area, and cleanup, mean I will look to roll in the future.

With our screen mixes and the OTS paint we recommend rolling shouldn't be a problem.
