Royal Talens Gouache is made with a unique dextrin-based binder that sets it apart from most other brands of gouache. This traditional formulation becomes more fluid as it is mixed, allowing you to cover large areas more evenly without dragging. It's also an incredible value.
Color Swatch created using full strength/50/50 and was applied on cold press Bristol board (2 ply) material.
Lamp black is a very opaque, heavily staining black pigment that does not have much covering power. It is typically the most opaque black in watercolor form. Though a very pure black, it tends to muddy slightly in mixtures, is one of the slowest drying pigments in oils, and should not be used under other colors.
Lamp Black is very lightfast and absolutely permanent. It is used in all techniques in permanent painting.
Lamp Black is slightly toxic by skin contact and inhalation. It is a possible human carcinogen.
