Sherwin Williams "Soothing White" (a light gray) in flat, probably going to spray-gun it onto the MDF.

There is a product that is blackout velvet with adhesive on the backing. Used for lining the inside tube of telescopes. Called black star I think. Don't quote me on that. Sold in long rolls so you could cut to length.

That would work really well. It is the most light absorbing fabric available as well.

HAHA

Would've been awesome if you did. Never seen one in person but I read a review from sound&vision where the reviewer said the black levels were on par with a kuro

Best of luck with your DIY man!

I mean, I'm already on my 3rd screen in two weeks with this one, when I have a dedicated room, I can invest in a serious screen.

HEY! That's a brilliant idea. I found just the stuff online on Amazon, Black Felt Tape, that's actually velvet that a lot of DIYers used for screen borders. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm ordering some right now so it gets here in time!

I'm not taking any DSLR caliber pics until everything is 100% complete.

Glad to help. Just get it on straight when you do it.

The pics look great.

That Epson is a good looking projector. I always liked the looks of that model. Reminds me of a storm trooper for some reason.
