Turns out, it's a penny on one side that's coated with the black paint. Next, we check out a little box coated inside with black paint. It looks like a little black hole, so dark you can't tell where the bottom is. There were gasps as someone stuck their hand in so you could see how deep the box actually was. Then nearby on a mannequin sits a piece of fashion: a dress spray-painted with Singularity Black.
Chase and Preston say Singularity Black takes this classic piece of fashion a step further. But painting your bedroom walls is probably out of the question for most of us right now, as Singularity Black costs several hundred dollars for just a quart of paint. We tell the NanoLab crew that we can almost see a high rise coated in the paint that would disappear in the night sky someday.
That's really, I mean, that's really what it is," replies Preston enthusiastically. So rooms, rides, things where you're walking in and you lose yourself. NanoLab originally worked with NASA to make black coatings for the insides of telescopes to help view deep-space objects and continues to look for aerospace applications.
They also have what might be the whitest white paint available. It's an extremely fun place to be. Skip to main content. Don't Tell Me! Local Coverage. Listen Live. The email address entered is invalid.
It's Boston local news in one concise, fun and informative email Thank you! The above screw, for instance, was coated in Singularity Black, and it disappears when set against a sheet of wrinkled aluminum foil, also coated in the pigment. But NanoLab is also making it available to artists, unlike Vantablack, to which Anish Kapoor has infamously received exclusive rights to use.
The company even has ongoing research and development efforts directed entirely towards the arts community, according to Dr. Colin Preston, a senior research scientist at NanoLab. Boston-based artist Jason Chase had the immense privilege of premiering the paint as an art tool a few weeks ago, unveiling in his studio the very first artwork coated in Singularity Black.
Singularity Black is technically less black than Vantablack, which is also chock-full of carbon nanotubes. The latter exhibits lower reflectance in the visible range — about 0.

But Singularity Black has the lowest visible reflectance of any paint in the world that is generally available to the public.
Preston, however, advises that artists first purchase a 20mL artist sample to experiment with Singularity Black and get acquainted with the prescribed coating techniques and its required treatment process. As a specialty paint, Singularity Black comes with a few complications and caveats. Chase also finds that he has to apply at least 15 coats of it for it to display its full capacities.
NanoLab hopes to introduce a new version of the paint that r equires a much lower processing temperature in the near future, though, so stay tuned. His black metal gummy bear is the first of many pieces Chase will make with Singularity Black, and he has plans to one day curate a group exhibition that showcases artworks made with the paint.
In our conversation, he emphasized over and over again the importance that the paint be made available to all artists so its possibilities will not be stunted. The artist maintains she was framed after an Emirati police search found half a kilogram of cocaine in her Dubai apartment.
