“COAT” arrived today, a new product of Stuart Semple, said to be the mattest coating possible. Since Black 2.0 isn’t “bullet proof” (read : is comes off when you rub over it with a cloth, even a dry one ), I was hoping this would be the solution. I do make my coalpaint bullet proof, and therefore I didn’t use the blackest version of my coalpaint until now in my paintings, because I only wanted to use real durable paint. I hoped this product would be a plus. But no :-( it adds gloss to black 2.0, so my blackest coalpaint wont be protected either. I’m dissapointed.
Late in the evening, Stuart posted a video to say COAT isn’t matte enough to protect black 2, he forgot to mention that … yeah, so I noticed… too late. I’ll use this product for other things.
BUT I do think I really had the coolest place ever to test this product.

Sometimes you have to take a distance… and you discover you’re in the middle of a crossroad.

About yesterday… for those who wonder: that photo was taken from the stairs of the framehead behind me. That was completely safe, it was even under supervision :).
