    I'm a newbie and I tried a search on this before I asked and came up with bumkis. I saw a website for a paint on screen. Has anyone tried this? I would like to know the results, and if it's any better or worse than a fabric screen.

    Paul, are you talking about Goo system? I heard of it, but that's about it. Go to AVSforum.com in the DIY screen section. There are all kinds of DIY screen systems.

    I found the website, its at diytheater.com under DIY projection screens. It looks like a three part polymer that you just paint on the wall and then frame it. I've never heard the term "GOO" but that might be it.

    Just some extra info.. I saw a huge difference going with a $40 DIY screen. Went the Parkland Plastics route with Behr Silverscreen + White Opal Pearlescent (70/30 mix). I only wish it were more reflective but the blacks definitely have a noticable improvement.

    I experimented a lot with the Behr pearlescent, silver, white and gray colours when I was making my own screen and decided to go with something else instead. There has been sucess with the mixes though.
