    The flatest black I have found is Winsor Newton Jet black Designers Gouache. Being a water colour; Mixing it with a small amount of acrylic matte medium will allow it to be applied to surfaces other than paper. You would have to experiment with the ratio to get the needed durability and water resistance. Price would also be reasonable.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    The original stuff (first link in Peter's post #3) has a squared off cap, the newer stuff has a rounded cap. As soon as you see it you'll know the difference...

    I'm going to an old harware store where the guy was getting the paint mostly for me. So it's possble he still has a shelf full.... I'm taking it all!

    I use the stuff all the time. My last 6 cans lasted a year.

    Restocking time.

    Using the above material "Avian Black" as a starting point for a quick search through the MSDS for this "MIL-DTL-64159 TY-II Black 383 CARC" product, I have found one that lists the pigment as 6% Carbon Black (by weight) in a urethane coating.

    So for a home brew version it would look to be your choice of clear base "paint" and add by weight 6% Carbon Black. That's a lot of carbon black.

    Ok, you asked for a home formulation, you got it! How useful this is, I can't say...

    From Wall & Jordan's Photographic Facts & Formulas:

    Black for Cameras - This may be used for wood or leather, inside or out:

    Nigrosine, spirit soluble ------------------- 2.5 g
    Bismark brown ---------------------------- 0.65 g
    Denatured alcohol or methylated spirit - 3.0 ccm
    Aniline ------------------------------------- 29 ccm

    Heat the dyes with the alcohol until dissolved, and then add the aniline; apply with a brush and dry before the fire or in the sun. Or, for a dead matt varnish, lampblack may be rubbed up with gold size or shellac varnish, using as little of the liquid as possible; then thin down with turpentine.
