If you are looking to use BA in a number of different venues, use dead velvet, no question. While some circumstances may allow you to "get away" with another material, every venue automatically has a different set of circumstances that will effect lighting. Exit signs, stage color, wall color, ambient light, etc. so having the right material to give you a consistent and reliable method for all venues is key.

You could also use a light shining toward the audience slightly...makes it very difficult to see the black art at all. When I perform Andrew Mayne's Spectre Cabinet, the work light is shining toward the audience.

Keyword there is "slightly" Smile Although this can be very helpful to mask BA, it can give the audience a blinded feel if not done correctly, diminishing the effectiveness of the illusion.
