# I didn't count the coats
The underlying model was white PLA with the dish assembly in grey resin, so it needed quite a bit. I just kept spraying until I couldn't see any white any more. The surface is quite fragile, so I drilled and tapped for an M10 bolt into the bottom of each so I could have something to hold them by.

Musou black feels like a powder coat. Not sure if you can overdo it. That photo was taken in direct sunlight with my phone, so it's as bright and detailed as I could make it. A photo taken this evening under a 60W bulb would make it look like Vantablack.
