Our Fine Grain Marble Dust is a product of the UK and is made from pure Marble rock. It is 100 mesh size and is technically known as Calcium Carbonate (CaCO).

It can be mixed with Cold Wax, to give extra substance to the wax and allows Impasto marks to have greater volume and texture. It can also be added as a dry powder to the painting, this also gives texture to the work.

It can be added to Gesso or PVA glue to give extra 'grittiness' 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 plenty of 'tooth'.

It is basically an inert (chemically inactive) substance and has been in use for 100's of years. Used also when making traditional Gesso using rabbit skin glue.

How much do you add?
There are no fixed proportions because every wax/oil mixture will be different, you will need to make your own decision according to your own requirements for the piece. Add as necessary but keep the wax/oil workable, if too much is added the wax/oil will be dry and crumbly, not good for the longevity of the work.

It is classed as a Non-Hazardous product, however, do be aware that it is a dusty material.

It goes without saying - Always wash hands with soap and water after using any type of art product.

Sizes available - 250 gm; 500 gm and 1.48 Kg.
