And a couple more shots, to illustrate the lack of "Hot-Spotting" issues with the Sherwin Williams Duration Extra White Matte paint. Taken with all lights out, using the flash on my Leica Camera.
You are quite welcome. This off-the-shelf paint is nothing short of stunning for its ability to reflect what the film director intended. Rich detail, even when the lights are on. Plus it does not sacrifice black levels, which was a huge surprise to me.thanks so much for all the great photos
The best thing is this paint can be rolled. If you can work a roller, you can paint a screen. All of my test sample boards were rolled with a 1/4 inch nap roller. But we chose to spray, as that sometimes will give a more smooth finish.With 100 different paint formulas for the do-it-yourself crowd, you have picked out the simplest basic white color and the easiest to apply that is out there on the market, with outstanding results. It really is a waste of time to look any further to have a screen paint that's going to give any better results than what you have.
Great! Let us know how it works out for you.Well, you talked me into it. I'm going to buy the SW Duration Extra White in Matte, 1 qt. and try it out on my extra piece of sign board.
I took your recommendation and painted my 4x8 foot MDF. Board with Sherwin Williams duration super white matte, and I could not be happier. Quart cost 30 Canadian dollars and made a huge improvement in colors,black levels with plenty brightness and no hot spotting.We are getting close to a selection, and it is narrowed down to 2 candidates:
Sherwin Williams Duration Extra White (Matte)
PPG Diamond Base 1 (flat white)
Our Behr Silver Screen / White Opal Pearl is just too dark. These white paints really show the details better, especially skin tones.
Our projector is the Epson 5050UB, and the Blu-ray player is the Panasonic DP-UB820. Surprisingly, these paints also do well with black level detail.
We have three sample boards on the left, PPG Diamond. The 4 sample boards on the right are SW Duration.
The boards (sheetrock) are sitting on bar stools and chairs. Sheets are draped over the chairs to hide them.
Let's look at some screen shots!
