Lamp Black (series1)

4 items left


PBk 6. Average drying. Opaque. Excellent Lightfastness. High Oil Content

So named because it was originally derived from the soot of oil lamps, this is pure Carbon, and probably the first pigment our ancestors ever used to decorate their caves. A soft, slightly warm shade of black whose lean surface gives it a greyish aspect. Probably not the best choice for unmixed underpainting on account of its tendency to move whilst drying, but this can be remedied with the addition of good drying Earths.
