A DIY projector screen can save you a lot of money. It can also allow you
to build a screen that is best for your system, and give a unique look to
your home theater. You have probably seen some plans already, and in this
article I will go into the materials and types of screens typically seen in
these plans along with their advantages and disadvantages.
A common type of DIY screen is the paint-on screen. Now if you are creating
a painted screen you should choose diy projector screen paint created
specifically for use as a screen. Choosing normal house paint can lead to
unpredictable results. Ideally this sort of paint comes with a kit
including at least a basecoat.
Now the most common material used in a DIY projection screen is white
seamless paper. This diy projection screen material makes for an excellent
picture. Now the trick with white seamless paper is to tension it properly
so that the screen stays completely flat. This is a common choice because
it is relatively inexpensive.
Another diy projection screen material commonly chosen is vinyl. Vinyl is
the material frequently used in commercial projector screens, and it can be
a good choice. You can get vinyl backed with a textile material that will
stay relatively flat even when untensioned. The problem with vinyl is that
you may end up spending nearly as much as a commercial projection screen
and it can be more of a hassle to work with than other materials.
Rubberized canvas can also make for good diy projector screen fabric. This
material can be purchased inexpensively, and there is some created
specifically for this purpose which gives a great picture. Like white
seamless paper it will need to be tensioned, but it is somewhat more
durable so if you end up creating a screen on a ground stand for instance
this will probably be your best choice.
