FPP on the development of black paint/pigment October 10, 2016 7:06 AM   Subscribe

I recall, but cannot locate, an FPP from a couple years ago (I think) that linked to an article/essay, or maybe a few essays, about the historical development of black pigments and paints. Any help? Thanks!

It might have had an early link to vantablack in it, but it was not one of the threads that specifically discusses vantablack. I believe the focus was on the use of black pigments by painters.

Any help? Thanks!

Was it maybe this post on the Reinvention of Black?

It doesn't cover vantablack by name in the post itself, but it's discussed in the comments.

Maybe this is the one you're thinking of: Black hole paint?

That reinvention of black post is what I'd thought of.

Good work, frimble! That's the one.
