You may wonder why, on a Watercolour Blog, Liquid Charcoal is the subject of this piece? The following will explain why.
This new product from Schminke isn't a watercolour or is it? There are three variations. Grape Seed Black, Cherry Pit Black and Peach Stone Black. The paints are produced by "charring" the ingredients listed above and combining them with gum arabic. The result is something similar in texture (and smell) to gouache.
