you should try the really thin/cheap plastic table
cloth material you can buy at most party supply
stores. it is white and comes on a 50' roll about 3'
wide and it very cheap - around $10 which will give
you multiple uses. this is espically great for large
projections, since it is on a roll just use clear
packing tape to seamlessly combine a couple pieces to
get the hieght you need.
it works great, i've used it for front projection but
made sure to note that it would work for read
projection. i was using a fairly decent lcd projector
(epson 600p ~1700 lumens).
