Liquid charcoal in a 35 ml tube is a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing and underpainting with charcoal. The pigment is of natural origin and is created by charring grape seeds from the EU area and the result is a unique cool, bluish grape seed coal black.
Due to the larger quantity of colour you can squeeze from the tube, liquid charcoal can be used to quickly cover large areas. The liquid charcoal contains a high-quality Gum Arabic binder, like traditional artists' watercolours and gouaches and has a gouache-like consistency. It 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 under-painting, subsequent paints do not become dirty or become less dirty than with conventional charcoal under-painting 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 ease of erasing of the liquid charcoal depends on the surface of the substrate - the more even and firm the surface, the easier to change the application. Prior testing is always recommended.
