Graphite
Graphite is a soft black made with purplish blues and brown and is not completely black. When waxed it becomes a beautiful black like dark slate.

Cabinet
Graphite painted on cabinet over Chateau Grey with an interior lined in a vintage paper already there when I found the cabinet
Uffizi
ADD MORE WHITE- to make 'Uffizi'
Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Graphite to make a warm sophisticated grey I've called UFFIZI after the Florentine art gallery
Gentleman
ADD OLD WHITE- to make ' Gentleman'
Add equal parts of Graphite and Old White to make a really elegant charcoal grey that remind me of a Saville Row suit so I've called it GENTLEMAN

Using Emperor's Silk as a base with Graphite on top is beautiful way to achieve the look of an old lacquerwork piece. Imagine it on a console table.
