    What sort of paint should I use to cover a DIY MDF screen for use with a Sony LCD projector (the funky little one).

    When I first got my PJ I painted a piece of wood for a temporary screen solution. Looking around on the forums I found Icestorm Grey No.5 was being suggested as the best paint to go for. An alternative is a slightly lighter shade Icestorm Grey No.6 (whiter shade of grey, better for lower lumens PJ's.)

    You can get the paint from any DIY store that mixes the colours upon your request. Just find the sample card and ask for it to be mixed.

    I used No.6 and found it to be quite good as a surface to project onto. That said I've just replaced this with a 70" Da-Lite wall mounted screen as I don't really have a space for a permanent screen and it's fantastic, happy Christmas to me!! :D

    Hope this helps
