Find it odd that special paint products like Screen Goo aren't mentioned in this article as an alternative to using standard house paints. Since it was designed as an alternative to physical projection screens, Screen Goo already takes into account issues regarding color, gain, smoothness.

It may be more expensive than regular paint, but we're talking about $200 versus $100.
