Hi thaiguy,

Welcome to HTS!

To answer your question, Auto Air Aluminum (fine) is designed to be an automotive paint used to paint cars, motorcycles etc. It is water-based, which is very improtant for our purpose since we mix it with water-based house paint.

Your best chance of finding it locally would be stores that cater to body shops or businesses that do custom painting of cars. Auto Air has a dealer locater page at http://www.autoaircolors.com/dealer/dealer_frames.html, but I didn't see any listing for suppliers in Thailand.

That Epson EB-W6 looks like it would have enough brightness to do what you want. A 100" screen would give you a maximum of about 70 foot-lamberts of brightness, that should combat a lot of ambient light.

is it possible to use luminous white color instead bermuda beige in order to produce a black widow screen?
If you mean using white paint that has not been tinted to match the PPG Bermuda Beige color, then no. One of the outstanding attributes of a Black Widow screen is that it is an extremely neutral gray. The pinkish beige appearance of the Bermuda Beige color is what compensates for the blueness of the Auto Air Aluminum (fine) when it is added to white paint.

Are you having problems having white paint tinted to PPG Bermuda Beige?

You are absolutely correct Custy! Sorry thaiguy, I keep forgetting people might have problems matching a U.S. paint company color. S0907 (the color tint code) in Dulux paint is the best bet so far.

Thaiguy, can you take a sample of the color you want your paint to be to your paint store and have it computer matched by them?
