What is Maxx Darth Black Paint by Green Stuff World?

This is a revolutionary creation that has earned its place as one of the blackest black paint in the world. When we talk about the blackest black, we're referring to an unprecedented achievement in the world of art and crafting, where color meets science to create something truly remarkable.

The journey to develop Maxx Darth began in Green Stuff World's in-house laboratory, driven by a passion for pushing the boundaries of what was possible in the realm of paint pigmentation. The goal was to create the world's blackest paint, and Maxx Darth Black was the incredible result of this ambitious endeavor.

What makes it stand out is its extraordinary ability to absorb light. It boasts a light absorption rate of a staggering 98.9% across the visible light spectrum. This remarkable feat of light absorption is what earns it the title of the blackest black. No other paint on the market comes close to achieving this level of darkness and fixation, making it a true masterpiece in the art of color creation.

At the core of Maxx Darth Black Paint's exceptional properties are its specially engineered pigments. These pigments are a new generation of high-coverage pigments that have been meticulously designed to maximize light absorption. When these pigments are combined with the acrylic medium, the result is a color that doesn't just reflect or refract light; it engulfs it, leaving no room for even the slightest hint of color to escape. This unparalleled light absorption is what sets this blackest color apart from any other acrylic paint.

But this is not just about scientific achievement; it's also a testament to the creativity of artists and hobbyists. Its ultra-matte finish provides a unique canvas for artistic expression. When artists use it, they are not just working with any ordinary paint; they are harnessing the power of the blackest color. This opens up a world of possibilities, allowing artists to create stunning contrasts, depth, and visual impact that were previously unattainable with conventional acrylic colors.

Applications are as diverse as the imagination of the artists who use it. It has found a special place in the hearts of hobbyists and crafters who seek to add depth and intensity to their projects. Whether you're a miniature painter, a model builder, or a crafter looking to create unique and captivating pieces, This is your gateway to achieving the darkest, richest, and most intense dark possible color.

How does the Blackest Black Paint achieve its extreme darkness?

It achieves its extreme darkness through a combination of innovative pigments and materials engineered to maximize light absorption. These pigments allow to absorb 98.9% of the visible light spectrum. This extraordinary product sets new standards for the deepest, darkest color achievable in the world of art and crafting.

  1. Advanced Pigment Technology: At the heart of its exceptional darkness lies a new generation of high-coverage pigments. These pigments have been meticulously developed and refined to have unmatched light-absorbing properties. Unlike conventional pigments, which may scatter or reflect light to some degree, these advanced pigments are designed to trap and absorb light entirely. This means that when light interacts with its surface, it is virtually absorbed without any significant reflection or refraction, resulting in an incredibly dark appearance.
  2. Exceptional Light Absorption: The key to achieving extreme darkness comes from its ability to absorb light across the visible spectrum. The blackest color excels in this regard, boasting an astonishing light absorption rate of 98.9%. This means that it absorbs almost all of the visible light that strikes its surface, leaving only a tiny fraction to be reflected. This unparalleled level of absorption contributes significantly to the paint's intense, ultra-black appearance.
  3. Ultra-Matte Finish: Its ultra-matte finish further enhances its extreme darkness. Matte finishes have a low sheen, which minimizes reflections. This finish not only complements the light-absorbing pigments but also helps create a visually striking, deep black effect. The absence of gloss or shine ensures that there are no distracting highlights or specular reflections, resulting in a consistently dark and velvety appearance.
  4. Scientific Precision: Its development required scientific precision and meticulous engineering. The pigments used are carefully selected and formulated to achieve the desired level of light absorption. Additionally, its composition and application techniques have been fine-tuned to maximize its light-absorbing capabilities. This attention to detail ensures that it consistently delivers the extreme darkness it is known for.
  5. Artistic Potential: Beyond its scientific achievements, the blackest color offers a world of artistic potential. Artists and creators can harness its extreme darkness to create captivating contrasts, depths, and visual impact in their projects. It opens up new avenues for creative expression and allows for the realization of ideas that were previously unattainable with conventional colors.

It's a testament to the boundless possibilities of art and crafting, and it's here to inspire creativity and captivate the world with its depth and intensity.

What is the comparative density of Maxx Darth compared to regular acrylic paint?

Maxx Darth boasts a higher density compared to standard brush acrylic colors. Additionally, its utilization of denser pigments results in a highly concentrated and richly pigmented product.

Is it possible to use Maxx Darth in the same manner as conventional paint?

Maxx Darth, being an effect paint, exhibits some distinctions from standard acrylics. The most significant distinctions, apart from its intense black hue, are its exceptional coverage and ultra-matte finish. It's essential to note that an excessive application of Maxx Darth in one area may obscure fine details.

Can I mix it with regular acrylics?

When mixed with regular acrylics, this product imparts some of its matte characteristics to the regular paint, resulting in a darker matte color relative to the added black pigment. Think of it as a new, darker black shade compared to the typical one. For creating a complete color gradient, it is advisable to transition from Maxx Darth to regular black as an initial step before moving on to other colors.

Is it feasible to dilute it for use in an airbrush?

Certainly.

Is Maxx Darth paint harmful?

No, it is non-toxic, as confirmed by testing conducted at the Spanish Toy Institute.

Do the pigments of this paint facilitate color blending and smooth transitions?

The pigment composition of this effect paint differs from that of regular paint. Achieving color blending with Maxx Darth necessitates transitioning through intermediate shades like black, dark gray, and so forth progressively. Skipping intermediate colors could result in unrealistic or less smooth blending, similar to skipping intermediate colors in a color transition from a different palette.

What occurs if I scratch the painted surface with my fingernail?

Scratching a painted surface with this product will indeed cause it to scratch. It has a light-absorbing surface, making it less resistant to scratching compared to traditional colors. Nonetheless, our testing has shown that it offers improved scratch resistance compared to other similar super-dark paints on the market.

What happens if I handle the Maxx Darth-painted surface extensively with my fingers?

Fingers naturally contain oils, and touching a finished artwork with painted surfaces is not common practice. However, doing so could transfer finger oils to the painted surface, causing reflections. This might result in the surface appearing less ultra-black and more plain black.

How should I store this Blackest Black Paint?

Storing acrylics at temperatures above 25ºC is not recommended, as it can accelerate their aging and reduce their shelf life. This is a common characteristic of all types of acrylics. Maxx Darth, however, can withstand freezing conditions and can be transported during colder seasons, as it has been tested at -15ºC.

Is it suitable for outdoor applications?

We do not recommend using it for outdoor projects, as excessive dirt and exposure to the elements can affect its light-absorbing properties, leading to increased reflections.

Can I use it to paint a car, motorcycle, or motorcycle helmet?

While this product was not specifically designed for such applications, it can be used to paint these items. It's important to note that these objects should be protected with a non-acrylic varnish to shield them from moisture and weathering. This varnish will largely negate the ultra-black effect by adding a reflective layer. However, laboratory tests confirm that even with the loss of the effect, Maxx Darth-painted and varnished parts will always appear darker than those painted with regular varnished black colors. In summary, you can achieve slightly darker colors than standard black, but the Maxx Darth effect may not be as pronounced.

What kind of tests have been conducted?

According to the report from AIJU (Spanish Technological Institute for Children's Products and Leisure), it has successfully passed performance tests for the presence of cadmium, lead, or phthalate plasticizers, following relevant regulations and standards. These include compliance with REACH Regulation (CE) nº 1907/2006 for cadmium, lead, and phthalates, as well as ASTM F963-17 and 16 CFR 1303:2016 standards for lead in paints and coatings.
