I used a sheet of drywall painted white, before that I used
black out cloth, and at one time I used a white shower curtain

black out cloth was the better screen - I also tried plastic bathroom
paneling - black out cloth still did better

I use what is called rubber backed blackout curtain material. Slightly stretchy so it is easy to stretch over a light weight frame. It has a slightly greyish/off white colour and works really well.

I don't suppose you'd be able to test the polarisation quality of this material? I'm debating if it's worth swapping out my current monitor in the projector with a passive 3D monitor... but I don't currently have a screen that reflects the polarised light so it won't work. How much did your material cost and where did you get it if you don't mind me asking?

This forum is amazing! You have contributed many ideas.

I use a screen that I bought because I didn't know that many of these materials could be used. I'm sure that I will save a lot of money in the future thanks to you.
