    whoever the artist is that "purchased" the color "exclusively" is a douche. how you gonna keep the artistic world from experiencing that? must not be very creative. someone creative would take something everyone has access to and turn it into something special.

    I came up with a use for this while in physics class, you could coat a thermal generator with this, I came up using heat absorbed by black materials to heat up the content of the tank inside, filled with water, eventually boiling and evaporating from the heat, that steam then leads to a turbine which starts to spin under the high pressured push of the steam making a dynamo start to spin generating electricity, and then just you realize that I’m only 14 years old!

    it would be cool to use this for clothes but think about how much heat it would absorb during the summer you would burn your skin on a hot sunny day but it would be nice during the winter.

    This would be great for coating solar water heating tubes, and hot water tanks.
    It would be great painted on shields on a south facing wall, to warm up a structure.
    I think it would make a warmer winter hat.
