The Blackest Black

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 creators of the paint, (Stuart Semple at Culture Hustle), created a new acrylic resin that holds more pigment than other acrylics which means 3.0 is capable of trapping much more light. They developed a pigment (Black Magick) that is totally matte (normally black pigments are slightly shiny). They have added a variety of brand new transparent mattifiers to flatten out stray light. The paint is sensitive to touch and needs to be handled with extreme care.
A suitable soft brush will be supplied with the painting to very gently remove any dust particles when they appear. Blowing on the painting also works.
The paint cannot be varnished as it will lose the matt black effect - it will mark easily if touched. You have been warned...but it is worth the risk.
