Does any one have any experience with brands of paint and who makes the blackest least reflective paint. I tried Rustoleum and it seems to reflect to much light, flagging it isn't going to work nor moving it farther from the light source so that the fall off in light will make it darker. I'm painting a peg board and shooting gelled lights through the holes for a backdrop and only want to see the colored light coming through the holes with the peg board being completely black.

You should be able to get the results you are looking for. But, first of all, you need to get away from the spray can products. Pick up a quart of any quality paint brand at a paint shop, and tell them you want a pure black, in the flattest sheen in that brand. Invest in a good foam roller for the pegboard, and use that. You will get a smoother, more consistent coverage than using a brush. Spray can products tend to be a bit shinier, because, I think, of the aerosol propellants in the can.

Thanks I tried the foam roller with rustoleum and it definitely does not work as well as Krylon ultra flat black spray paint. I may try other paints and pump them through my commercial sprayer later but for now as long as I can maintain the back drop at one stop less than the subject it seems to be working OK.

I would use cheap latex flat black instead of oil base paint. I would also paint the rough side rather than the smooth side. HTH.

Krylon makes a camo paint that is designed for this kind of work. I found it on a site which people were painting the inside sections of telescopes to reduce the light reflections.
