Dimitris,

I havenít tried lampblack, but spinel black (PBk 26) is a beautiful cool (bluish) black that mixes instantly with tempera.

PBK 26-77494, contains copper/manganese, a true black which does not reflect any color, fresco color

I hadnít seen that thread, but I agree with what was said.

I get it from Kremer out of New York. However Sinopia gets theirs from Kremer.

Dimitris and Doug,
Spinel black sounds interesting. I'll give it a try. I started out using ivory black, but on a trip to France a couple of years ago I bought some mineral black (which I'm told is Mars black) and I've been happy with it. Very opaque, but at the same time seems to glaze well in shadow areas(?).
Going WAY back, I used to make my own blacks by mixing ultramarine blue with burnt umber. More ultramarine makes cooler black, more umber makes warmer black.
Phil

I'd say Ivory and Mars are necessary. I havent tried the others.

Having read this I decided to make some lamp black. It is burning out in the back yard at the moment. I amm following Cennini's recipe of a burning lamp of raw linseed oil under an inverted baking tray. So far so good.
