Product Overview

The new Schmincke liquid charcoal enables a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing, or underpainting with charcoal. Schmincke offers three different colour shades. The three pigments of natural origin used for this are created by charring fruit seeds 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

Just like traditional artists‘ watercolours, the liquid charcoal contains high-quality Gum Arabic which provides a gouache-like consistency.

  • Due to the consistency of liquid charcoal, this product can be used to quickly process large areas.
  • Can be diluted with water, so that different shades, structures, and layer thicknesses can be achieved by various application techniques.
  • Depending on the substrate and the thickness of the layer, the liquid charcoal can be wiped off by hand and removed with water.
  • Can be 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.
  • The Schmincke 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.
  • This product does not contain animal products.
