    So I've been operating my home theatre room (a.k.a. the bedroom) with a BenQ W1070 projector located 2.7 meters away from one of the walls. The wall itself was originally yellowish but we had it repainted to white just for the screen. The paint we used, though, was hardly good and the projected...

    As of the time of this posting we must recommend that people NOT USE Behr paints as a screen paint or as part of making a screen mix. The problem is that the Behr #1850 flat enamel paint recommended in many threads on this forum has apparently been reformulated and now has a gloss level high...

I'm very pleased with my current image but I want to get the most out of my projector. I am not sure if I want to do any of the DIY recipes on here. I was wondering if...

    A TV show was showing the new full spectrum type of paint. This paint does not have any black in it. This is so the paint will not absorb as much light. The first thing I thought of was testing of the paint for a projector screen.

    Sorry if this available and I have not searched properly, but do you update mixtures regularly, based on availability of components? E.g., what are the current mixtures for BW, Scorpion N8, Scorpion N8.5, Elektra and C&S (all variants)? Thank you.

    As the title says, the Elektra™ screen mixes will run in shades from N8.5 down to a yet undetermined level. That is one of the reasons this mix is here in the Developers forum and not the main forum - it's still in active development. First a bit about the name - Elektra is Greek and means "the...

    I've stated this many times now when I first bought the Dulux Exterior paint to compare to Black Widow. I also see that some folks are still recommending exterior paints. Bad idea! Exterior paints contain many things that aren't meant for interior use. They contain mildicides, fungicides...
