All I can compare it to is a white shower curtain Killz is a water based primer that I bought at Home Depot. I've also seen it at Wal-Mart. Make sure you get the water based Killz- much easier to work with. I think the quality is pretty good- I still need to attach a border.

Yoshi formerly of Tech TV recommended it one of his last shows... wow that was over a year ago... He used it on blackout cloth with great results.

Supposedly there was a small improvement in black levels between the cloth alone and the painted material... that made me want to go out and buy it right away, cause Iím the "king of perfection."

I didn't cause my wife is the "queen of not spending money when the current blackout cloth is working just fine." So Iíve only used the cloth for my box.

Now Iím looking at a larger screen size than I can stretch from fabric and thinking about buying some of the goo myself.

Let me know if you like it.

15" LG Flatron 575LE - Works, needs 20pin FFC extension, quite easy to unassemble except some connectors were so tight that they would begin to break when i tried to separate them, solution: I cut the metal with metal scissors to get the lcd out of the frame.

I use three pieces of large white foam board from staples for $17. It makes a 108" wide screen. You could hardly see the split between the boards. But actually my wall paint works very well for the top and bottom on full screen because I could hardly tell where the edges of my boards are.

Default My DIY screen

My screen is a PVC product that sign writers (does anyone actually still write signs?) stick the laser cut letters to. It comes in 2400mm x 1200mm x 3mm for less than $100.00...

I think it reflects and awesome image...

I need a (approximently...) 7' by 9' screen. My diagonal is 120" and all I have set up is a couple of 1"x3" studs with a tarp under, and a bed sheet on top.... its sucks.

any suggestions? I dont want to spend $75+ but I do not want to loose any screen size at all. im used to the massive screen. I guess I could sew 2 blackout clothes together but i think the seem would show way too much.

thanks.

Default Styrofoam

Hey, I found a really good material for use as a screen. It's blue styrofoam thats typically used as an insulator. It comes in sheets of 4' x 8' If you want anything more than 4' tall, what I've done is cut two pieces to 5' x 4' and line them next to each other and use packing tape to connect them. THe result is a really nice picture and always goona be flat. The picture just as good as the blackout cloth I have ued in the past.

These sound pretty good. Where did you get them?
