Non staining colors esp. payne's and neutral

Hi Folks,

I am using a waterbrush and the teeny Daler palette to sketch, without pencil or marker outlines. I tend to use payne's grey or neutral tint a lot, and also to mark borders.

So my question is, how do I find non-staining colors especially payne's grey or a cool black, and a warmer neutral black grey so I can use my waterbrush like a pen at times?

Edmund

mix your own chromatic black... if you are looking for non staining, than the standard ultramarine and burnt sienna mix will work...

Here's a great recipe for black ...


"Incidentally, a rich, transparent, extremely lightfast and flexible alternative to all carbon black and convenience dark neutral paints (indigo, sepia, neutral tint, payne's gray, etc.) is the generic mixture I call synthetic black. I originally developed this mixture using the additive (RGB) primaries indanthrone blue (PB60), benzimida brown (PBr25) and phthalocyanine green (PG7), roughly in the proportions 8:6:1, although any transparent, dull and/or dark red orange, green and blue or violet paint mixture will work fine. The reasons for using the additive primaries are that (1) they enhance the light canceling effects of subtractive mixture more than a mixture of the subtractive (CYM) primaries, and (2) the paint proportions can be varied slightly to shift the "black" mixture toward any hue of dark shade (as demonstrated in this painting)." from https://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/waterw.html
