This is another pigment that we searched the world over for. Our Graphite has very small pigment particle size, providing you with a very dense, velvety paint. We added Graphite to our paint line especially for the print maker. Most artists tend not to mix Graphite with other paints, however some really intriguing mixes can be made with our line of transparent colors, such as the Phthalos and Quinacridones. Graphite paint has a slight shimmer, which is emphasized even more when buffed. When used in printing, the slight sheen, coupled with the density of the pigment imparts a wonderful dimensional illusion.
