French Noir Indien, PBlk11, natural black iron oxide is a very opaque black paint with a warm quality to it. In comparison to our other blacks it has a slightly more satiny sheen and grittier texture. In colour, French Noir Indien exists between Slate Black and Lamp Black. Its masstone as well as its tint is holding back a violet streak that keeps whispering from it's surface but never fully declares itself. It creates a gray that is in the middle of warm and cool.
Each colour is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colours will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined and PH- balanced linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This provides total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French colour makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. The paint is packed in 37 ml and 150 ml non-reactive aluminum tubes. Larger quantities of paint are packed in aluminium cans using only the purest materials.
