Best material to absorb as much light as possible

What you need, is Vantablack. This awesome material reflects only .04% of light - way too little to affect those silver halides. That being said, I don't think it's commercially available. Perhaps ...

Is this a double exposure?

Why does my multi-exposure film image appear darker than calculated?

Film has an exposure curve. I'm guessing that when you are combining many multiples the amount of light is insufficient to generate any real density (you are on the heel/bottom of the curve). For your ...

How to show the differences between two images in one combined image in Photoshop?

The easiest way is probably to use "Darker" layer mode if hands are darker than the dial and "Brighter" if it's vice versa. Given that the images are the same except the second-hand, of course.

composing a double exposure in the LCD

Generally, there's not a whole lot of love for double exposure in camera. It can easily be accomplished in post-processing, with finer control over exposure blending, masking out areas, etc. The only ...

Can I extract photo from multi exposure photo from a Pentax K-70?

No. It is not possible to separate the input images. The camera saves the exposures in memory and combines them to create the image file. It does not save a file for each exposure.
