The recent thread about Black 3.0 (https://www.cloudyni...here/?hl=+black) got me looking at my dob and there are several places where I need to re-black surfaces.  I've signed up for a notification when Black 3.0 is available but it looks like that will be a couple of months so I'm wondering what the the best alternative to that would be for right now?

 

I have a bit of Protostar flock board that I got to experiment with a while ago, but there are some places where it won't fit and probably only paint will do.

I have tested all the rust-o-lium flat blacks.  The darkest black is the camouflage followed by the chalkboard black

So, is that a flat black used typically as one color among several camouflage colors with a light last coat of the chalkboard paint?
