Looked at a couple of AV threads from other sites mainly US based and wondered if anyone has played with making there own high quality screen. There seems to be a few sellers of paints but checking them against AV forums some can be complete hoaxs for example this one
if you go by what these dudes are saying
http://www.simpit.co.nz/ have some amazing stuff and loved the screen Thomas(really nice guy and am considering his product price for a 120inch is $1500 free shipping nz) is selling but was thinking as we are building a house has anyone had a crack at mixing paints and come up with a formula or paints that can be brought and mixed in NZ. With a goal of possible much larger screen
1 anyone had a go at making/painting a screen
2 what is the down sides/learnings from this?
3 what makes a $2000 screen better than say a well rendered wall with the right mix of reflective black paint. - assuming labour/time is not a barrier as am keen to have a crack :)
4 Any links to genuine paint sellers with reviews or people who have used a product?
