BW and Dark Spots

Hey guys Ive been posting in here lately about getting my screen sprayed with BW...Well it's finally done!!! I'm very please with it but I have a couple concernes.....
1. there is a "texture" to the surface that was painted?? is this normal??? it's not huge like a topographical map or anything...but there is a "grain" like texture to it....like a real course sandpaper....

2. there are two distinct "dark spots" on the surface of the screen about the size of your hand... I asssume that either the BW layed down a bit thicker in these areas OR it layed down differently...My question is this....Can I go back with some fine girt sandpaper to try and take these areas down a bit and make it more uniform??? is this something that you guys have experience with?? is it advisable to go back over the entire surface area (not just the dark spots) to smooth out the texture that I was refering to in question 1???

Thanks in advance....and thanks to everyone for guidance in making this happen......Riff :bigsmile:

It sounds like an uneven coating/coverage to me.
I think if I paid someone to do the work I kinda would demand that they take the responsibility to do it right. I can see where being on a budget is a concern, but this has been sprayed before and if the surface is prepped right it will come out right.

I'm not trying to be a jerk here, just saying that since is has been successfully sprayed a couple of times that it can be done. You shouldn't have had to repay, they should have made it right.

If I paid someone to spray my car with Emron paint and they accepted the job but seeing it is a unique type of auto paint and perhaps they thought it was easy money but never sprayed it before I might be lenient with them and try to work through things, but in the end they took money and said they could do the job so I would hold them to that... or ask for my money back.

Again, like I said, I'm not trying to be a jerk here, just saying when you pay someone for a service and there is a problem with the work it's their responsibility to make it right one way or another.

In the end, if you are happy with BOC, then that's all that really matters, but I'd still at least ask for a refund.

I know what you mean, cloth screens can be a royal paint when it comes to stretching and mounting them.
