Chalk- Pigments- Merino, Sari Silk, Mulberry Silk & Llama. 100g


Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

This relatively boring sounding pigment is one which many of the old masters relied upon. It was used as a thickening agent, and oddly, for a colour that seems so white, it becomes translucent in oil. This allows it to be used as a glazing layer. It also forms the base for many paintings. The canvas being covered with a layer of chalk to smooth the surface, or to create gesso for murals to increase their longevity. 

Colour Description- Grey-white with textured beige. 

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
