Roman Black - 50ml

£12.95

A black made from an earth pigment sourced from Verona in Italy.

Rather than a 'carbon' based black based on something like charred animal bones, this is consists of the minerals magnetite (iron oxide), calcite (calcium carbonate) and pyrolusite (manganese oxide) and gives it an earthier feel and less greasy/oily handling than a 'carbon' black. 

It is pretty neutral in temperature and being a strong tinter provides a wide range of steps from black to light neutral gray. This is my favourite black in the Rublev range it just handles so well and feels very earthy but still maintains good tinting strength.

Please try this or the Natural black oxide for your black you won't be disappointed.
