Projector screen paint can be used as an alternative to a typical fabric
screen. There are five questions that are frequently asked about projection
screen paint, and they are covered here.
Why would I want to use Paint Instead Of A Fabric Screen?
The key reason why many choose to use projector screen paint is because of
the cost. If you intend on having an extremely large sized screen, say over
110? the costs for a fabric screen can be tremendous. Another advantage is
that you can tint projector screen paint, and by doing this you can get a
picture more suited to your personal tastes.
Can I Put The Paint On Any Surface?
Typically the paint can be applied to any smooth, paintable surface.
Problems can arise with porous surfaces such as wood and gyproc. You will
want to seal the surface with a primer, some specialized projector screen
paints have their own special primer, but generally you will want to use a
latex primer. Some projector paint packages will have their own base coat
Can I Just Use Regular Wall Paint?
It is possible to use regular wall paint, but this typically gives mixed
results. The only advantage to this is the cost. The problem with regular
paints is that they are not designed to reflect light in a specific way
suitable for viewing as projector screen paints are, and the image could
appear dull. Reading the results from those trying this approach across the
internet makes success with this method appear like a crapshoot.
What Is A Good Type of Paint?
Perhaps the most recommended paint on the internet is Screen Goo. Screen
Goo comes in a big kit with it is a base coat, and specific instructions to
be followed. It is reasonably priced and can provide great savings over a
fabric screen especially when used on a large area. The reported viewing
experience appears to be very positive.
Should I Put Something Around The Screen Area To Make Viewing Better?
It is suggested that you surround the viewing area with black velvet. The
properties of black velvet allow it to absorb excess light very well, and
this improves the overall appearance of the image. If you are going to be
using a HD projector make sure that the area within the velvet adheres to a
16:9 ratio otherwise there will be empty space above and below the picture.
