Meet the World's Blackest Paint, "Musou Black"

We are very excited to present you "Musou Black," a water-based acrylic paint and the World's Blackest Paint available to the public!


General black acrylic paints absorbs up to around 94-98% of light however

Musou Black absorbs up to 99.4% of visible light!


Our hope is that this black paint will inspire and help bring everyone's dark creations to life!

Painting Methods

This water-based acrylic paint can easily be applied by air-brush or paint-brush. Achieving an overwhelming blackness has never been easier!


We will always recommend to apply Musou Black using an air-brush. By applying multiple thin layers of powder coatings, you can achieve a blackness that will absorb up to 99.4% of light!


Please be sure to check out the "How-to-Paint" video below for tips and tricks to air-brushing Musou Black!

Even if painted with a paint-brush, this paint maintains the world's highest class light absorption rate of 98.8%! It has a high concealment and low reflection performance, yet has much lower viscosity than general acrylic paints, and it is easy to make a smooth non-reflective surface.

If you are wondering how it compares to other black paints, please feel free to take a look at our blog!

Product Specifications

Product Name: Musou Black

Product Type: Synthetic resin paint

Ingredients: Synthetic resin (acrylic), pigment, antifungal agent, water

Applications: Plastic models, various models, crafts, etc.

(A non-water-absorbent material may require a surface treatment or primer.)

Capacity: 100ml

Precautions for use

  • Due to the powdery light absorption layer, the strength of the coating is very low, so glossing and peeling of the coating will occur even with light contact. The painted object may shrink and crack.
  • Powder dust will be generated during painting, so wear protective equipment such as goggles and a mask before using.
  • This paint has no infrared reflection suppressing effect.

Q: Can Musou Black be used as a car paint? 


A: The simple answer is No. We do not recommend painting a car with Musou Black because the paint is fragile and the coating can easily be scratched/peeled off. Top or clear coats may improve its durability however this will decrease Musou Black's darkness. Simply put, Musou Black was never designed to be used as a car paint. If you would like to paint a car, we recommend to do it solely for display purposes and not for long-term use.


Q: What will top or clear coats do?


A: Top or clear coats may improve Musou Black's durability, however this will decrease its "darkness" because light will reflect off of the top or clear coat. If you would like to maximize Musou Black's darkness, then the Musou Black coating needs to be the top layer.


Q: What can I do to improve Musou Black's durability?


A: Applying a primer beforehand will slightly improve Musou Black's adhesion, however the coating will still be fragile. We are currently researching methods to improve the paint's durability without affecting its darkness. Once we have found something, we will notify the public.


Q: Where can I find the Musou Black fabric featured in The Action Lab's video?


A: That is actually our Visible Light-absorbing Flock Sheet! You can find more information about it here: VL Flock Sheet. The Flock Sheet is available for purchase on our Amazon US store! We are hoping to begin sales on our Amazon UK and Germany stores soon!


Q: Why is the shipping cost expensive?


A: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we unfortunately can only use priority service for overseas shipping. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish for your understanding.
