Limestone Dust as it comes
Our Fine Limestone Dust is a product of the UK and is made from pure crushed Limestone. It is a fine powder. (Calcium/Magnesium Carbonate: CaMg(CO₃)₂
It can vary slightly in its creamy colour and gives very slight colouration to the wax mixture. When mixed with Cold Wax, it gives extra substance to the wax and allows Impasto marks to have greater volume and texture, but with a softer look than Marble Dust. It can also be added as a dry powder to the painting, just like adding pigment, this also gives texture to the work.
It has a less 'gritty' feel than the Marble Dust and can be added to Gesso or PVA glue to give extra 'grip' for painting with wax. Makes an excellent surface for Pastel artists when applied to paper with either Gelatine, Gesso or PVA, gives a good surface with a 'soft tooth'.
Like the Marble Dust it is basically an inert (chemically inactive) substance and has been in use for 100's of years.
