*BLACK V1.0 (beta) 

The world’s mattest, flattest, black art material

The world needs a ‘better’ black and we’re unbelievably excited… BLACK v1.0 (beta) Is available NOW for testing and feedback. 

BLACK comes two parts, a super pigment and a super base allowing for almost infinite combination possibilities. 

  1. BLACK 50g - non-toxic, ultra matt, super black micronized top quality inorganic pigment. 
  2. SUPER-BASE 150ml - Stuart’s special acrylic co-polymer base medium. It’s unique molecular structure enables it to be super-loaded with pigment (it becomes the highest pigmented art material on the planet). Stuart’s also thrown in the best mattifiers available, drying to an ultra flat, super-matt finish - reflecting almost no light.

Once combined these two substances create a super-flat, ultra-black covering unlike any other. With just one coat almost any object (even really shiny ones) become super-black and reflect next to no light, giving a Vantastic black hole type effect.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE: this is not the blackest black in the world. It is however a better black than the blackest black in the world as it is actually usable by artists. 

BLACK v1.0 (beta):

  • NON TOXIC
  • AFFORDABLE
  • AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE
  • DEVELOPED FOR ARTISTS 
  • EXTREMELY LIGHTFAST
  • HARD WEARING
  • COLD TO TOUCH
  • BLACK CHERRY SCENTED
  • PRICED AT WHAT IT COSTS TO MAKE
  • NOT AVAILABLE TO ANISH KAPOOR

Stuart Semple is releasing a beta version of BLACK for testing and feedback from the community, believing that collaboration is the key to perfecting the best art black on the planet for everyone. 

He has developed what he called a ‘better’ BLACK in close collaboration with colour chemists, cosmetics innovators and experts from the architectural coatings world, who have helped him completely overhaul the super-base he’s been using in his own paintings since 2001. 

HOW TO USE:

To use, simply squeeze out some super-base and gradually stir in some BLACK. Be a bit careful as the pigment can get everywhere. 

Paint whatever you want with a soft brush.

Health & Safety - we recommend wearing gloves or barrier cream when dealing with ANY loose pigment. A face mask is a good idea, pigment can cause dust clouds. 

The black will stain! Be careful what it lands on. Don’t get it in your eyes! Don’t eat or drink it even though it smells yummy. Have fun but treat it with respect.

We’d really love to know how you mixed it (proportions, quantities weights and measures), what you did with it, any ideas on how we can make version 2 better… because we’d love to make a user guide for everyone and tweak this until it’s the ultimate so please email ideas@stuartsemple.com with any ideas. 

ENJOY!
