Black 3.0 is the latest version of Stuart Semple’s super matte, ultra black acrylic paint.

It was created with the help of over 1000 different artists who beta-tested the paint. Thanks to the amazing support of the artistic community via Kickstarter we managed to fund the manufacture of this incredible paint (it was just too much for our little studio).

Black 3.0 is the blackest and mattest acrylic paint on the planet. Unlike other super-black coatings it can be safely applied with nothing more than a brush, and we’ve worked super hard to make it affordable. 


We created a new acrylic resin that holds more pigment than other acrylics which means 3.0 is capable of trapping much more light.

We developed a pigment (Black Magick) that is totally matte (normally black pigments are slightly shiny)

We have added a variety of brand new transparent mattifiers to flatten out stray light.

  • Absorbs up to 99% of visible light
  • Apply with a brush or a spray
  • Works with most surfaces (wood, paper, canvas, plastic, metal, plaster etc…)
  • Thins with water
  • Lightfast and archival
  • No need for cooking, vacuum chambers, or weapons-grade scientists
  • Smells like fresh coffee
  • Not available to Kapoor

Looking for a bigger bottle? Got a BIG idea? Black 3.0 has been supersized… get your BIG Black (1 litre) here

It’s simply a paint, so it’s super easy. You literally just brush it on. It will handle a bit different than your other paints, but you’ll get used to it :)

Key things to remember:

  • Use a nice soft brush (not a rubbish scratchy comblike one)
  • Apply at room temperature 10 - 25 c ( 50 - 77 F)
  • Use as little paint as possible and spread it out nicely
  • Allow to dry between coats (at least two hours, overnight is better)
  • Use a hairdryer to get max blackness
  • Seal absorbent (porous) things with 25% PVA and 75% Water
  • Prime shiny (non - absorbent) things with primer or Black 2.0

Q. The finish has white patches! Help?

A. You didn't let it dry fully between coats or you painted it on an absorbent surface without sealing it first. Moisture can react with the paint while it's setting. See if you can sand it back and do another thin coat

Q. Can I mix it into Resin?

A. Technically yes, but it will not stay matte! If you're looking for a glossy and super black finish then this is for you! We recommend using Epoxy Resin.

Thank you so much for your support!

Have fun with it and share your work on instagram with #sharetheblack

Here it is - your very own liquid mirror in a bottle!

Ultra high grade mirror / chrome potion Hybrid solvent based coating15ml 

For the first time EVER it’s now possible to brush apply (or spray) a truly realistic mirror/chrome.

This challenge has baffled paint makers for decades, artists all over the world have been demanding it and our geeks have managed to crack it for everyone.

WHAT'S THE WORD?

  • LOOKS JUST LIKE A REAL MIRROR / CHROME
  • INCREDIBLE COVERAGE - one bottle (properly applied) can cover 8ft square.
  • INCREDIBLE PIGMENT NEVER SEEN BEFORE - our paintmakers put this potion through 31 different processes to get it perfect for you!
  • MICROSCOPIC PARTICLE TECHNOLOGY - the pigment itself is less than half the size of a red blood cell. This means it flows like nothing else! 

HOW TO USE AND THE SAFETY BIT

Unlike our other materials this paint is solvent-based so please use it in a well-ventilated area.

  • Clean your brushes with white spirit/turps etc not with water!
  • Use a good soft synthetic brush.
  • Seal porous surfaces first (PVA is good)
  • Obviously don’t leave it on your skin, drink it, eat it etc.
  • You can spray it with an airbrush BUT make sure you have a mask on - the fumes aren’t friendly!
  • Keep it away from the kids and animals
  • Don't get it in your eyes! 
  • It doesn't dry quite the same as the paints you're used to - make sure to leave it to dry for 24 hours in a cool (not cold), well-ventilated area, for 24 hours before touching it

We can’t wait to see what you mirror with it! Please be sure to share your work with us.

Have fun and enjoy :)

This is Lit! The most powerful light emitting pigment on the planet!

This creation by Stuart Semple blends some of the planet's finest light emitting pigments and rare earth activators to provide all artists* with the ultimate light emitting paint. 

Did you know? We also do a big bulk bag of LIT if you need to go big for a project! You can check that out here :) 

What does it do? 

  • Unlike other glowing things, Lit can be recharged an unlimited number of times
  • It's super high luminescence will often glow brighter than the ambient light around it 
  • Can be charged with light 
  • After super-bright initial glow, will afterglow for up to a few hours (depending on your mix)
  • Has been specially formulated to mix with superbase to create a super pigmented, mega glow paint that will stick to almost anything. 
  • Mixes straight into resin! 

Non toxic - contains no hazardous or radioactive substances. 

You can download our LIT fact sheet here :)

How do you use it?

Important - you can't just mix this with water like Stuart's other powder paints. It needs a binder and we've designed it to work with superbase to create a highly pigmented acrylic paint that will stick to almost anything. However you can also stir it into linseed oil to create an oil paint. NOTE: if you are putting it over a dark surface it's a good idea to put down a layer of white first (our saint potion is an amazing white acrylic that works well) 

      • Mix 1 part lit powder to 1.5 parts superbase
      • If you’re having trouble try adding a tiny amount of water to lit first
      • Add more powder to achieve desired consistency
      • (Feel free to experiment with ratios depending on your application)
      • Optional - feel free to add a clearcoat or varnish to protect your final work
      • Charge up with a light source, sun or heat.
      • Watch it glow and share your work with hashtag #shareTheLight
  • VITAL: only mix as much as you need, you can't keep LIT once it is mixed. Even in an airtight jar the chemical reaction with superbase will make it go hard.

Safety bit:

Don't eat it, rub it in your eyes, get it too near your mouth. Probably best not to let kids play with it without an adult helping.

*Especially Anish Kapoor. If you are Anish Kapoor, can prove you are associated with Anish Kapoor or to the best of your knowledge information and belief this substance is going to make it's way into the hands of Anish Kapoor, your order will be free! We want you to know how lovely it feels to #shareTheLight

SUPER BASE by Stuart Semple is the mattest, flattest acrylic base medium on the planet. Now with an improved formula!

150ml of this special medium

It's very very special and smells of honey & oat.

If you are looking to create highly pigmented, super-matt, ultra-flat paint finishes, and you want to paint them on all sorts of weird and wonderful surfaces - then this is the stuff.

Super Base works brilliantly with all the powder colours and Lit powders. Once combined they produce rich, vibrant, matt acrylics. Once you have coloured Super Base you can thin with water to achieve your desired flow.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HOW TO USE

  1. Squeeze out some Super Base
  2. Gradually stir in powder colour, pigment or acrylic paint until it makes a thick paste
  3. Slowly stir in small amounts of water until all lumps are gone and the desired flow is achieved
  4. Use like paint

The health and safety bit

Okay, it’s a potion which means it’s got chemicals in it. They’re not toxic BUT you don’t want to drink them or get them in your eyes.

Please don’t paint hot things with it, when it heats up it can give out some nasty fumes - so no painting lightbulbs, radiators etc.. If you’ve got kids please keep an eye on them we don;t want them drinking any either!

As always we love to see what you make with these materials so please show us what you do!

Have fun!

Stuart Semple has unleashed a Metal AF set for the art community.

Up until now metallic acrylics have been a bit rubbish. They just don’t look like metal, or they are thin and hard to use. The other option is stinky solvent based paints that literally give you a headache to use and are expensive to buy.

This is THE WORLD'S MOST METALLIC paint set! 

HEAVY METAL contains:

  • THE WORLD'S GOLDEST GOLD - metallic acrylic paint by Stuart Semple 30ml
  • THE WORLD'S SILVERIEST SILVER - metallic acrylic paint by Stuart Semple 30ml
  • THE WORLD'S COPPERIEST COPPER - metallic acrylic paint by Stuart Semple 30ml
  • THE WORLD'S BLACKEST GOLD - metallic acrylic paint by Stuart Semple 30ml

Last year we started sharing the Goldest Gold, a paint that when applied is almost indistinguishable to actual gold leaf! Without the hassle of having to apply gold leaf! You guys seemed to really enjoy it and have been asking for more metallic colours for your projects, so we followed that up with The Silveriest Silver. To make that work we had to suspend particles of real silver in the paint, you can’t get more authentic than the real thing!

For HEAVY METAL, we’ve added two new colour creations, an incredible Copperiest Copper and a totally gorgeous Black Gold.

These acrylic paints can be applied to almost any surface, metal, plastic, paper, wood, canvas, fabric or cured resin.

The info bit....

  • You can apply with a brush (or spray if you thin the paint first).
  • Coverage approx - 30ml covers a 50 x 50cm primed canvas however this is a guideline as some surfaces are more absorbent and we don't know how thickly you'll apply it.
  • Don't - Eat it, drink it, paint your skin with it or try to tattoo with it. 
  • Do - keep an eye on kids using it because if it gets on your sofa it's going to be a pig to get off. 

We really hope you enjoy making some metal AF work with them!

Don’t forget to share what you make with #culturehustle so we see it :)

Have fun and Rawk on!
