Schmincke Kohle Liquid Charcoal Trio Set
The new Schmincke Kohle Liquid Charcoal is now available in this trio set of three shades of black. This unique paint allows the leap from drawing to painting. Schmincke Kohle Liquid charcoal is a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing and underpainting with charcoal.
The three pigments of natural origin used for this (PBK 8, pit black) are created by charring fruit seeds from the EU area and result in the following unique coal nuances.
Set includes 3 x 5ml tubes:
- a neutral peach stone black
- a warm, brownish cherry pit black
- a cool, bluish grape seed black
Due to the larger quantity of available paint, liquid charcoal can be used to quickly cover large areas. The liquid charcoal contains the high-quality binder gum arabic like traditional artists’ watercolours, has a gouache-like consistency and can be diluted with water, so that different shades, structures and layer thicknesses can be achieved by different application. Depending on the substrate and the thickness of the layer, it can be wiped off by hand and removed with water. Used as thin underpainting (e.g. in oil painting), subsequent paints do not become dirty or become less dirty than with conventional charcoal underpainting due to the higher adhesion of the bound carbon pigments to the substrate.
Of course, the liquid charcoal can be combined with drawing charcoal. The blurring and removability of these paints depends on the substrate’s surface. The more even and firm the surface is, the easier to change the charcoal’s application. We recommend testing before use.
Due to the fact that these pigments are natural products, there may be minimal colour variations in each batch.
