In Response To: Deep Black Finishes (Dave Jolley)

Asphaltum is still available. You can buy purified asphaltum form lots of sources or you can by roofing cement without fiber it is made form asphaltum. You can thin it to workable consistency with mineral spirits. I suspect that the frames were coated with a clear finish either varnish or lacquer to seal the asphaltum and to give added depth.
