Question Projector wall paint


Active Member

I have bought my projector: Optoma UHD40 (2,400 Lumens, 500,000:1 contrast ratio).

I now need to paint my wall with the right paint. I have spent a long time and finally decided on "Paint on screen, S1 screen plus". Unfortunately, I am based in Europe, and they only ship from the US (which my country makes a real pain to receive from because of VAT issue).

So I thought I'd mix the paint myself, from paints I can source in Europe (maybe UK).

I read on this forum about the black widow paint mix. Though the posts I saw were old. Is the following mix still the best one to do? 4 parts of S0907-y70r (from Leyland in the UK) and one part of Auto-Air Aluminium Fine 4101 ?

Also, I am sort of wondering if this is worth doing, compared to simply grabbing a random matt light grey paint from my local dealer?

Thanks a lot for any advice !
