German Vine Black - 50ml

£16.85

Vine Black makes a moderate, slightly cool gray that works well in graying out flesh tones without dirtying them. It makes brownish grey tints when white is added.

Pliny describes a black earth which he calls ‘Ampelitis’ or ‘vine earth’, which is the source of this color from the Veneto region.

The pigment was known since prehistoric times and used extensively by medieval and Renaissance artists. Vine black was a term used in the 19th century for carbon black pigments obtained from pyrolyzed vegetable sources.
