    Re: Looking for high light absorbent black paint

    Pali, for his 6x17 3D-printed camera, recently started using spraypaint made for simulating a chalkboard service. Seems to work well for him. I am going to get some for my Mercury 2x3 camera which has some reflectivity issues with the widest lenses.

    Edit:
    Possibly this one

    I use this as a general blackening paint, as it does not shed it's surface, is tough, and covers well... But it is a bit slow to dry, and the surface can reflect a little, but as I mentioned, where there is a major incident reflection of light, additional baffling, grooving etc can also be added... The trick is not to allow broad smooth surfaces (even any kind of special black) to reflect...

    Also visit a good hobby or art store and see the materials used for train set buildings or architectural models, as this material can be painted and placed in trouble areas...
