    Drywall finishing takes a lot of experience to make it look good. My screen wall had too many problems, so I painted a sheet of 1/2" MDF and hung it on the wall. Good luck.

    Have you put on the high gloss yet? I am a little concerned about hot spotting, glare, and/or the affect of room ambient light on the screen with a glossy finish.

    well the high gloss is going to work as the primer in this situation it will be covered by 2 coats of SS (flat). I will post back after the hi gloss has been put on. Should be later tonight or in the morning.
