Abstract piece depicting the solar eclipse. Painted using Black 3.0, Metallic Paint and embellished with 24 Carat Gold Leaf. The black paint is sensitive to touch and needs to be handled with extreme care. Black 3.0 is the blackest and mattest acrylic paint on the planet which absorbs up to 99% of visible light. It is like looking into a black hole.
The painting should be handled by the frame only.
The paint cannot be varnished as it will lose the matt black effect - it can mark easily if touched. Extreme care is required when handling.
The best method of removing any unwanted dust particles from the black surface is to very gently, and very lightly, dab some scrunched masking tape on the surface. Blowing lightly on the surface can work, but not straight after (or during) eating or drinking - I know, I tried.
Natural Light is shining directly onto the Gold Leaf
