Bit of a silly one perhaps but................. I've seen photo's of people's projected images who own screens costing £100's of pounds. I've seen photo's taken when projecting onto white walls, Ikea Blinds, hell even projecting onto BLACK bits of fabric....! And know what. They all look bloody good images. Now I'm sure there is a lot of difference when you are there in person but it's amazing just how good these things are when people are using such a variety of surfaces to shine their picture onto... Which leads me onto what I'm thinking of doing: I understand from reading previous threads that the paint "Duluxe Ice Storm" is the most recommended colour paint to use for a LCD projector. Being off white meaning the blacks are enhanced. Before going any further. Would you still feel this is correct? To carry on. I was thinking about buying a sheet of wood (MDF or PLY or ChipBoard) mounting it onto the wall and painting it with this colour to use as a cheap screen. I'd thought if I make it about 2 to 3 inches larger all the way round then I can use this border to fit the screws thru the wood and into the wall, then painting this boarder matt black which will hide the screws and give a nice dark surround to the image. A few questions regarding material: If I paint plain MDF it goes a bit furry as the surface get's wet with the paint. I wonder if this will be an issue? Or I know you can get Chipboard with a white melamine covering, which I could paint and would give a smoother surface. Perhaps this would be better ? If you've not got bored reading this by now. I have the all important final question. Just what picture can I expect from something like this ? Is it going to be very poor to the point that I'll just ripp the thing off the wall and wished I'd paid out a few £100 for a proper screen, or for LCD projection is it really going to be very very close to the quality of image you'd get from a matt screen anyway ? Anyone gone from a Duluxe Ice Storm painted surface to a real screen and been god smacked by the immense difference, or rather dissapointed that it didn't really make THAT much of an improvment.... I know we're not after reflection with a LCD.
