No regular wall paint will get you anywhere close to what an actual screen will look like. You can get a good screen the size you are looking for at around $200. Save up and go that route.

The odds that someone on this forum has used either of those paints with the projector you have with the same ambient light setting as you is between slim and zero.

My recommendation, paint is cheap, buy both, do half one and half the other and determine for yourself what you like best. And set your expectations accordingly too... you're talking about a screen that costs thousands of dollars and you want paint to match that? Ain't gonna happen. If you're still determined to paint go to avsforums and check out their diy screen section, way more active and way more knowledge over there.

And get your caps lock key fixed.

This 1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017M5XMC8?th=1
but I would concur with Rodchester and Roar a screen would be cheaper even a fixed screen.

Unfortunately there is no substitute for a projection screen, and painting a wall is not going to do the trick.

Definitely go with an actual screen with velvet boarder. You will need to paint the side walls and ceiling. There is no substitute for black. I did mine when I had a projector and it actually works great for my OLED.

The Glidden Diamond Interior Flat Enamel will work fine but still, an actual screen is a lot better.

Just passing by.
It all depends on your wall + distance. Yet still I must admit it's a good solution, but not the perfect one. As a user of this setup:
Epson HC 2150
Throw distance - 20 feet
Watch Distance - 22 feet
Screen - 145 diagonal
Paint - grey from Digital Image, if I'm not mistaken.
I can tell that the image on the wall could be fine. But it's not perfect. When it comes to paint, there's no ultimate solution, and it won't replace the proper screen completely. Sorry.

You can try another budget friendly option (if the price is the reason) - blackout cloth, which can be picked up at any fabric store such as JoAnn's. It's made to be used as drapery, but works very well as a screen.

Have a look here, some tips on painting I found when I was making my "screen":

https://wisepick.org/best-projector-screen-paint/
and here:

as they offer a nice DIY solution.
