An extremely versatile product, liquid charcoal is fine ground charcoal mixed with gum Arabic. This gives an oil paint quality that squeezes straight from the tube. It is even thick enough to be applied with a palette knife.
It is water soluble so you can achieve any shade you want from original dark black to light greys just by the level of dilution.
The water/charcoal powder mixture means you have the ability to get various granulation effects into your work, especially when used with textured paper.
The liquid charcoal will dry to a matt finish. 50ml tube
