BLACKEST BLACK Pigment stain expands the potter’s palette with unlimited practicability. How it can be applied onto earthenware, greenware or bisque?
BLACKEST BLACK color powder mixed with water provides the cheapest and the most usual way of applying underglaze decoration. Glaze and body stains are normally used for the preparation of colored glazes or colored slips. The pigment is suitable for both operations. You can use effect glazes in any combination with this pigment.
All pigments for ceramics are intermixable so why not get creative and experiment by missing your own completely fresh color. During the firing process, the colors fuse extra vigorously creating purity, intensity, and brilliance. The colors are stronger, therefore, significantly less percentage is needed to create vivid colors making them excessively cost-effective. Darkest black is a pigment with a black color.
The "blackest black" pigment refers to a class of ultra-dark black pigments that are designed to absorb and minimize the reflection of light, resulting in an extremely black appearance. The two most notable blackest black pigments are Vantablack and Black 2.0. Here's some information about these pigments:
Vantablack: Vantablack stands for "Vertically Aligned NanoTube Array Black." It is composed of a dense forest of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes that trap and absorb light, giving it an almost completely black appearance. Vantablack is known for its ability to absorb up to 99.96% of incident light, making it one of the darkest substances known. It was initially developed for military and aerospace applications but has also found use in various artistic and scientific fields.
Black 2.0: Black 2.0 is a commercially available black pigment created by artist Stuart Semple. It is a super-black acrylic paint that is designed to achieve a deep, matte black appearance. Although it doesn't absorb light to the same extreme extent as Vantablack, Black 2.0 is highly pigmented and provides a very dark and visually striking black color. It was created as a response to the exclusivity of Vantablack and its restricted availability to artists.
Both Vantablack and Black 2.0 have gained attention and popularity due to their unique properties and use in artistic and scientific endeavors. However, it's worth noting that while Vantablack is highly specialized and tightly controlled, Black 2.0 is more widely accessible to artists for their creative projects.
It's important to keep in mind that the term "blackest black" can be subjective, as the perception of color and blackness can vary depending on the context and surrounding elements.
How to use Ceramic pigments of the potter:
Jet Gray color is powder and should be mixed with a suitable medium (water) in the approximate proportions of 2 parts color to 1 part medium. These can be diluted further with water for brush application, immersion, or flooding. After good drying, the products should be glazed with transparent gloss or mat glaze and fire in the kiln.
When using ceramic pigments in glazes, usually in concentrations of 1–10%, a little more care must be taken because some pigment systems react with materials in a glaze.
