    The old paint was yellow compared to the Goo paint. After 10hours when I take the first shoot, the paint was very sticky and far from dry. That results inn blooming effect.

    After 48hours the paint was still sticky, and it was easy to see the rolling fields...

    Now, after 1week the PQ are perfect! The Goo needs ~6 weeks healing period, but after the first week the major drying is done.

    The 3D effect and details in dark sceene's are much better than my old matte white screen.:D

    That's a damn fine picture you got there.

    I run TheaterTek 1.5 on my PC onto an iiyama 19" monitor at 1280x960@75hz. (Pretty much the same as you but 4:3).

    I think I'm going to build myself a screen using Goo... Any idea for what to use as a decent screen? I thought plywood would be good, but not sure if I can get one piece with no joins? Any ideas?
