Slate Dust as it comes
Our Fine Grain Slate Dust is a product of the UK and is made from pure Slate. It is a fine dust that is almost a powder .
It is grey in colour and gives 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. It can also be added as a dry powder to the painting, 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.
How much do you add?
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.
