Actually, considering the job it has to do, and how well it can do it, Black Velvet coming in at 7.70 yd (3' x 54") can cover some real Ceiling acreage for less than many paints, whose cost is upward / beyond $30.00 a gallon. And painting anything out "Black" must involve multiple coats, using the correct sheen (Flat is horrible
ugly...Satin is better.) and if rolled, much care must be taken to avoid roller mar4ks that will be very obvious when the lights are up. Of course it serves best when the only Masking needed to be done involves Side Panels, the interior of a recessed area around a screen, or just the area directly abo0ve a highly placed Screen
I've used Black Paint, Proto Star Telescope Flocking, and Black Velvet, and the latter was by far the best combination of wholly effective making performance, cost, and ease of application.
