Schmincke Horadam Naturals Graphite Black

Horadam Naturals Graphite Black is a deep, neutral dark colour, opaque, and with very good lightfastness, made from ground natural graphite. Graphite has been mined for thousands of years, and after wet cleaning, the graphite pigment contains a carbon content of up to 98%.

The name “graphite” comes from the ancient Greek “graphein”, meaning to scratch, write, draw, or paint. This pigment has been used for drawings since ancient times, and since the 16th century, a graphite-clay mixture has been used in almost all pencils.

New HORADAM Naturals is a high quality, environmentally friendly, and vegan watercolour paint. They offer an unique combination of watercolour and gouache properties allowing creativity in its purest form. For even more colour variety, these Natural colours may be used together with all watercolour and gouache colours.

Natural, precious pigments 

The outstanding feature of HORADAM Naturals is the use of exclusively natural earth and plant based pigments and extracts. The genuine juice of the indigofera plant or the resin of the dragon’s blood tree enables plant-based colours. The use of exceptional earth pigments leads to precious colours like Lalvarit violet or Caucasus earth. The lightfastness of each pigment corresponds to the natural characteristics of the pigments.

100% vegan and naturally formulated

The aspiration for a vegan and naturally formulated watercolour leads to properties that distinguish this colour from a pure watercolour or gouache. It therefore takes a certain amount of familiarization and understanding of the characteristics that distinguish these colours:

The natural pigments are sometimes slightly coarser in texture, which – unlike gouache – results in a rougher, usually slightly granular surface effect.

The consistency of the colours is a little tougher, so that the colours do not flow as easily as with watercolours. This makes the colour more controllable, comparable to a gouache.

Some colours, such as Curcuma and Stil de Grain, have a wide range of colours due to their high glazing properties. While Curcuma enables yellow to orange colour strokes, Stil de Grain has a yellow-green to greenish-brown colour. This characteristic is very similar to a watercolour.

The delicate fragrance of individual colour tones comes from the ingredients of natural origin. Due to their use, there may also be slight colour variations in some shades within different batches. This is not a quality defect. Anyone who makes use of these properties will quickly learn to appreciate the special nature of Naturals colour shades.

The finest HORADAM Naturals watercolours are available in 15 ml tubes and as 2 sets.
