Black Mirror BETA - The shiniest most reflective brush-able black on the planet!
Is this really the world's most reflective black paint?
Please help us find out...
Black gloss potion
Hybrid solvent-based coating
For centuries a high-gloss brushable mirror paints have eluded alchemists and scientists.
Cars need to be lacquered, gloss needed to be sprayed. Household gloss left brushmarks and artists dreamed of a mega gloss for their work. You needed to buy gloss topcoats, and if you got it wrong it foamed and bubbled and clouded your work.
Brushable, super reflective paints are elusive, challenging, and difficult to use. We really hope this contribution fixes that and enables you to do things you couldn't before in your work! No more gloss topcoats!
MASTER OF THE DARK ARTS
Artist Stuart Semple and his studio geeks are well known for creating both the blackest black paints and Mirror - the first and best brushable mirror chrome paint.
We are hyped to share that these discoveries have now collided to enable you to wield the power of Black Mirror, simply the shiniest, mirroriest black coating out there.
NOT JUST ANOTHER GLOSS BUT MEGA GLOSS!
We wanted to create a paint that wasn't just glossy or shiny but was so reflective it could truly be called a Black Mirror. As it dries you'll see the same self-leveling technology we used in the original Mirror come into play to give you a super flat, ultra-gloss finish. It's tough too, you won't need a topcoat on this monster!
GOES ON WITH A BRUSH OR SPRAY
BLACKER THAN A GOTH'S HEART
DRIES REALLY TOUGH AND DURABLE
NONE MORE BLACK
CAN YOU HELP?
Is Black Mirror really the world's most reflective Black paint?
We believe so! It's way shinier and more reflective than any brushable paint we've put it up against. But we don't know everything... that's where you come in! We would love you to put it through its paces, compare it to other paints, and let us know if we've really nailed it...
We've made a small batch of lab tins or this bonkers new Black Mirror concoction. We are sharing them with a small number of artists in order to get a sense of how you use them and how we can make it even better for all artists. We will send you a survey a couple of weeks after you get the paint, and if you have time we'd love to hear all your thoughts. As a thank you, we will make sure you get a healthy discount on the final formulation.
HOW TO USE AND THE SAFETY BIT
Unlike most of our other materialsthis paint is solvent-basedso please use it in a well-ventilated area.
BIG TIP! Don't use a scratchy, rubbish brush. Use a decent soft paintbrush (or experiment with a spray)
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 do with it! Please be sure to share your work with us.
