Schmincke Liquid Charcoal

Liquid charcoal in three shades of black
allows the leap from drawing to painting
The new Schmincke liquid charcoal enables a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing, and underpainting with
charcoal. Schmincke offers three different colour shades. 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:

• a cool, bluish grape seed black • a warm, brownish cherry pit black • a neutral peach stone black

Liquid charcoal in three shades of black
allows the leap from drawing to painting
The new Schmincke liquid charcoal enables a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing, and underpainting with
charcoal. Schmincke offers three different colour shades. 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:
e,g,: cherry pits charring of fruit seeds e.g. charred cherry pits
Due to the larger quantity of available paint, liquid charcoal can be used to quickly process large areas. The liquid charcoal
contains the high-quality binder gum arabic like traditional artists‘ watercolours (gouaches, watercolours, etc.), 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 the liquid charcoal depends on the surface of the substrate - the more even and firm the
surface, the easier to change the application. Pre-tests are recommended. All three colours are available in 35-ml tubes
from art material retailers.
Please note: Due to the fact that the pigments are natural products, there may be minimal colour variations in each batch.
