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

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!

Can I mix it into Resin?

Yes! we recommend using Epoxy Resin.

Tip: It goes bonkers under a UV / black light ;)

50g Original LIT
50g Blue LIT
50g Pink LIT
50g Yellow LIT

 

Appearance:

  • original lit- daytime creamy white, glow phosphorescent green 
  • blue lit - daytime light blue, glow blue
  • pink lit - daytime pinkest pink, glow hot neon peach
  • yellow lit - daytime yellowest yellow, glow neon yellow

Here it is... finally Stuart has shared a full set of 4 intermixable LIT's. This means that the world's most potent light emitting pigments can be combined to create an almost unlimited spectrum of your own glow-in-the-dark colours!

LIT is pretty incredible stuff! It's a unique combination of colourants and naturally occurring earth elements that once charged, chuck out light like nothing else! They can glow for up to a few hours and if charged well can glow brighter than the ambient light around them. It's like light in a jar! It can be re-charged an unlimited number of times! 

It's important to know that all the LIT's (apart from the classic original lit) will need UV light to charge fully, so sunlight is your best bet! Classic LIT can be charged with almost any light source - i.e your phone light, house lights etc.. 

How do you use it?

Well, you need to mix it into a paint, you have a few options

  • Oil paint - just mix it straight into linseed oil 
  • Acrylic - mix it into an acrylic base or our superbase
  • Toys / miniatures / plastic stuff and fingernails - mix it directly into a clear nail varnish
  • Resin - it mixes straight in 
  • Exterior projects - mix into a good exterior grade polyurethane varnish from your local hardware store. 

TOP TIP: It's best painted over a light colour so put down a layer of white first - we recommend our saint potion (as it's really really good white paint)

Non toxic - contains no hazardous or radioactive substances. but DO NOT eat it or leave it on skin please! 

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. Don't leave it on your skin please. Have fun!

Technicolour - holographiciest holographic pigment kit - 3g Prysm & 30ml Stick

Regular price $51.00

Tax included.

We are super excited to share our latest creation with you! After a lot of work we’ve made an incredible HOLOGRAPHIC powder coating kit!

TECHNICOLOUR contains:

  •  3g Prysm (holographic pigment)
  • 30ml Stick (adhesive)
  • 1x Wand (applicator)

With this kit you can powder coat just about any surface with PRYSM, our ultra high-grade holographic pigment powder.

It works well on wood, paper, glass, plastic, leather, canvas and just about every other surface you can think of.

Although once finished TECHNICOLOUR is surprisingly durable you can finish it with a clear gloss topcoat of your choice to make it weatherproof and scratch proof!

How it works:

  • STICK makes any surface ready for PRYSM pigment.
  • You apply stick with a brush of your choice and then once it’s dry (10 mins), you use the included WAND to rub the pigment onto the sicky stick!
  • You can always finish with a top coat, almost anything clear and glossy will work - avoid a matte top coat (our COAT product for instance) as it will dull the effect.

Here's a little video showing how it works: 

There are several decent holographic powders out there, but the good quality ones are ridiculously expensive.

There is no way to mix a holographic pigment into a paint, resin, varnish without it losing it’s light reflecting powers so we’ve put our time and attention into not only producing an exceptionally high quality pigment at an accessible price, but also an application process that means it’s usable for artists.

We really hope you enjoy playing with it and can’t wait to see your work!

Please keep us posted on what you make by tagging us @culturehustle on Instagram!

OOOH BONUS!!!

If you’ve got any of our other powders: dazzle, lit or the colourist colours, these can now be applied with STICK too, and it makes them even more potent! (note - it's not compatible with diamond dust!)
