CI Name: PBk 11
Pigment Name: Natural Black Iron Oxide
Lightfastness: ASTM I - Excellent
A versatile colour, when used straight it is very much like a traditional Cassell Earth or Van Dyke Brown, but when white is added it cools down and becomes bluish - almost moonstone like. Dries with a soft matte surface.
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.
