more framing and painted to seal it up and slow down possible warping of the wood.

Purchase the paint here.

You can't see the errors in my screen because this companies paint is that good.
Honestly I have nothing else to compare the paint too as this is my first screen but like I said, the screen is not perfectly flat.
I believe I purchased the Silver edition (can't remember) but he has diff. versions and the paint itself is awesome!
There are a couple of videos showing off the paint and I will make one as well.


I posted a quick YouTube video or 2 (no commentary, will work on "How To" for those that would like)
Watch on youtube.com

I do have a question that has been perplexing me.. How did you or what did you use to draw that radius on the MDF??

For my 2013 screen I used a spool of wire and a pencil. Just affixed one end of the wire to the center-point and the other end to the pencil and drew the line like a protractor. Once you have the first piece done, use it as the template for the rest. Sort of a crude way of doing it but it works.

Cool videos. Looks like the paint works good at wide angle in the second video. :)

I'm not going to lie brother, I didn't know how to go about this either yet I knew there was an easy way to accomplish this.
I just couldn't think back to middle school.

Here is a picture of what exactly Mr. BHawthorne is talking about.
There may be better ways but this is how I did this and it worked.

Please deposit your money now to see my Salvador Dali style of art. haha.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.
