Special Ink invisible to the eye

In summary, the individual is seeking a type of paint that is invisible to the naked eye but appears black when sprayed onto surfaces. They are familiar with reflective paint that appears white/silver under light, but are looking for a black option. They mention the possibility of painting a black base layer and adding the clear reflective paint on top.

Greetings all,
I am quite new to this forum so please forgive me if this is on the wrong thread. I recently purchased some reflective paint which sprays on clear and appears white/silver once light hits it at night. However I am looking for a type of paint that is invisible to the naked eye that can be sprayed onto surfaces but appears black. Is there anything you guys are familiar with that would help me achieve this?

Thanks for your help

If it appears black, how is it invisible?

I know reflective paint contains glass beads inside that makes the reflection white but i didn't know if there was something on the market that makes it black. Never hurts to ask

Can't you paint a base layer in black and then add a coat of the clear reflective paint?
