Black Paint

In general do you find that black is the hardest color to paint/polish because it shows everything?

Re: Black Paint

any dark color shows defects in prep work and sink marks and stuff.

Black is the hardest color I've dealt with. As PMan mentioned, when done correctly the end result can very satisifying.
