Help for a beginner - Black Widow Paint

Hi, I was just wondering if you could help with a couple of questions regarding the black widow paint mix.

1. I accidentally bought the Dulux Wash and Wear 'Low sheen' tinted with Bermuda Beige 427-2 rather than the Wash and Wear 'Flat' . Would this significantly affect the performance?

2. Given that 'Auto Air Aluminum Fine have rendered the formula for making Black Widow™ useless', should I take the gamble that this supplier: airbrushmegastore . com (the only Australian supplier I could find) stock the older versions of the auto air aluminum fine or just start over and choose a different paint mix?

Thank you for your time

Thanks for your reply . Perhaps I should just buy the AAA first and then think about the base. What base should I use for the new AAA? Do you have any idea whether it'd be available in Australia?

The base will be determined by whether you get the new or old AAA-F. The old requires a base paint tinted to PPG 'Bermuda Beige' while the new requires a base paint that is tinted to a neutral gray.

Re: Help for a beginner - Black Widow Paint

I received my AAA-F today and its the new version. Specifically, what kind of neutral gray base paint should I ask for? I have a BenQ W1070 which will be ceiling mounted about 12ft from the 110-120 inch diagonal screen. The projector is in the living room which is not fully light controlled so there will be a bit of ambient light in the afternoon. I also expect to use it for 3D viewing.

I think I'll go with 115 inches diagonal. As for 3D, lets just say that if a movie is available in 3D, I'll watch it in 3D so fairly important.

If he has access to B.M., he can use it's N9 as well as white. It is called Tundra 2133-70.

Re: Help for a beginner - Black Widow Paint

To be honest I know absolutely nothing about paints and have no idea whether Benjamin Moore is accessible. I'll try asking. So I should just mix AAA-F with the flat white base (without tinting it grey)?

Re: Help for a beginner - Black Widow Paint

Re: Help for a beginner - Black Widow Paint

Hey, well according to the guy I spoke to at Bunnings, Dulux don't make the flat white version anymore so I had to order it online. I received my order yesterday but they gave me the Matt instead so now I'm waiting for them to exchange it. I'll keep you updated
