Imagine a transparent black with an expansive value range and pigment particles that react like magnetic shavings attracting and repelling each other.
Unique pigment properties make Lunar Black a radically reticulating color. When dry, a Lunar Black wash resembles a marbled moonscape. This mottled stony texture can be successfully glazed. You can even gently paint into a wet to damp Lunar Black, dropping in watery pigment-virtually any combination of favorites.
Lunar Black is an inorganic neutral black watercolor pigment and a Daniel Smith exclusive. Think Black Magic-and re-think black.
