Stuart Semple and the Culture Hustle team reinvented their formula for the blackest of paints and beta tested this together with a group of creatives that were able to get their hands on a beta sample. There is now a Black 3.0 paint available so you can buy the darkest paint yourself.
After the thorough beta testing process, the already successful Black 2.0 has been improved dramatically. Black 3.0 outperforms any matt black paint on the market right now absorbing 98-99% of all visible light.
Check out the first real life application of the new blackest black in the video by The Action Lab below:
And here’s the official Kickstarter campaign video:
How to use Black 3.0
Now that Black 3.0 is out officially Stuart Semple was so nice to make a how to video.
- Don’t use a rubbish brush
- Don’t put on too much paint
- Make sure your room has a reasonable temperature: 10 – 25 c ( 50 – 77 F)
- Prime any shiny thing that you want to paint black
- If you’re painting something absorbent, seal it first
Pricing and availability
There’s again a very nice disclaimer for Vantablack owner Anish Kapoor stating he’s not able to buy Black 3.0.
If you’re not him you can order 150mg of Black 3.0 from the official Culture Hustle website, it’s available now!
