Black is Black

Reputedly the meanest, mattest, blackest acrylic black on the market:

 

Black1

This is one coat over a papier mache mask from The Works. It's still drying so there's some glossiness to bits of it but there's no denying it's black and it's matt:

This is my Tamiya T-Rex, Mark. Mark gets used for  lot of paint tests thanks to his textured hide:

He's had one coat of Black 2.0 slightly thinned with a touch of Humbrol Acrylic Thinner, which is a retarder and flow enhancer, brushed on with a Humbrol 7mm flat brush. He was previously finished in a coat of Humbrol aerosol 69 Yellow.

 

Its covering power is remarkable. I think it could find a lot of use in the "deep, dark places" of our models.

 

I'll see how much thinning it can stand next.

What are the pigment size like, paints used for plastic kits have very fine pigment, whats this like when painted over something that has fine surface detail does it then obliterate all that lovely detail

Don’t you name your dinosaurs?:D

 

Stuart Semple would make a fortune with this if he jumped into bed with a company like AK or Mig (with added ‘modellers tax’ of course).

 

I’m tempted to try out some ‘developed for artists by artists:rolleyes:’ Black 2.0 if only to smell the ‘Black cherry scent’.

Sorry guys, I've been scary busy this last few days.

 

It's very finely pigmented but remember the idea of a pure black is to kill any reflections so any surface detail is going to be flattened.

 

Mark T Rex is a tribute to:

 

It smells like cat pee to me!
