Dark and rich, Shale is a semi-transparent maroon that mixes without dulling, as it deepens the value of a color, with very little change in hue.
Cool in mixing and tinting, Shale is indispensable as a "magic black" full of color yet an instant shadow!
Mixed according to specification using proprietary pigments, including Cadmium Yellow, Shale is also found in the complete set of all eight grays, A Set of Color and Light.
Our Shale is milled with the finest alkali refined Linseed Oil in limited quantities for a naturally drying durable paint film. 800-932-9375
