Rear projection

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,I just got my hands on a old projector. It's a overhead projector with a built in LCD panel, not quite the top notch projector of todays but it cost me 0$ so...My question is, what kind of material can I use to make a rear projector? Paper, cloths, special screen???Thanks for any help

Go to http://www.pookiedom.com/b1900d and view the cockpit progress section to see my rear-projected screen. My brother works in the printing business and he got me a few sheets of 2' x 4' velum paper. This worked very well.I now have much better rear projection screen ... I went downtown and found a plastics manufacturer. They sold me a 4' x 8' sheet of opaque plastic about 1/8" thick. I hung this from the ceiling and it's the perfect, smooth, large display screen ... perfect for rear-projection.Good luck.
