Lamp Black was originally made from soot, the carbon resulting from burning oil in lamps. This synthetic version is a deep black that is great for making bold stark statements and for outlining. Mixed with yellow shades of dull olive greens can be made and it can, of course, be used to make darker shades of other colours. Tutors often advise to use sparingly to avoid dullness in natural greys, but as a mixer with colours other than white you could be in for some useful surprises.
