As an alternative to black, Payne’s Grey can be used to shade a number of colours without making them look muddy and dirty, as may occur when using a strong black. It is suitable for shading to shade reds, browns, greys, blues and greens. However, as it is semi-transparent it can be applied in layers if a strong black is required.
