Hi, I'm trying to create a nice dark grey colour for a plane which has a bend modifier to give it a nice scoop shape in the background.
I'm tearing my hair out as I need it to be a very dark grey, but not black. It seems that I can only have light grey or flat black, whatever I select on the RGB values for the Ambiant/Diffuse settings dont seem to make any change unless it's totally black, even if I move the value slider 1 bit it goes from black to light grey, with nothing inbetween.

I'm at my witts end having struggled with this all day, I'm getting more confident in modelling and animating but it seems getting the scene nicely lit and coloured is incredibly tricky in some instances.The other items in the scene are fine for colour, just this black/grey problem.

thanks for any help, I have an idea I'm missing something reeeeally simple!
