    Hi All

    I am working on building a projector screen. I have purchased some blackout cloth. Im not sure what side to use for the screen. One side is kind of a smooth rubbery type material, the other side has more of a fabric feel to it.

    Any help would be great [​IMG]

    I used the textured side, it wasn't as shinny. I also painted my screen, figuring the paint would adhere better to that side.

    LaMarcus, the best place for blackout fabric is a fabric store. I believe all Home Depot has is a kind of canvas material.

    Ah. Neil where the hell is 43 degrees north and 79 degrees west? I've always wanted to ask you that.[​IMG]
