Bob Ross® Liquid Black Base Coat

Bob used his liquid black base coat to help create the beautiful, subtle effects of many of his oil paintings. He also would blend the liquid black and liquid white base coat mediums to create a subtle grey for effects such as an overcast day. Most often the liquid black base coat is used in place of liquid white for large areas where dark colors need to be applied in order for highlights, such as foliage, to be painted without having to add an extra layer of paint to the canvas.
