I have recently tried a wall with JK white putty, finished by using sandpaper (120 number) as a screen and it is giving me better results than any of the conventional wall paints I have tried so far.

Only wall putty ? That's interesting, would be an off white sort of a color ? Will need to treat a wall in July so will be following this thread and learning from fm's experiences.

Yes, it is off white in color. Calibration of the projector took care of that. It is giving me good colors, bright image and no hot spot.

I tried clicking photos but it is of no use since it depends on the camera settings. It is similar to trying to judge a music system by listening to its performance on youtube.

Go with Cream Colour Paint...
Bhargavk,

Noticed that you are replying to every post on the forum with some trivial answer. Don't know what you are trying to achieve. Are you trying to put something up for sale and hence increasing your post count? If you are cannot contribute with any valuable information, please refrain from posting and not just reply with some one line comment.

I've painted my wall with Dulux Snowfield after some research on other forums. It has worked out great for my Epson Home Cinema projector. The contrasts are great and the colors are vivid after calibration.

Sorry for the late reply since I don't read these forums regularly. It's a Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 1080 that I picked up from the U.S. a long time ago. If I remember my research that I did then correctly, the problem commercial paints have is that they absorb and reflect different colors in different proportions so color accuracy is difficult to obtain. The one I have mentioned came the closest to reproducing all colors equally and the picture was outstanding after a simple calibration using red and blue filters and SMPTE patterns. Be advised that since it is a shade of grey, it absorbs more light than something closer to white (but it gives better blacks) so you need to have a dark room for a bright picture. I don't see why it shouldn't work the same for other projectors.

I think by adding a spoonful of black in it will give a better grey and so the contrast. I am thinking of trying it. Any comments on this.
