    Using printer toner as pigment mixed into open acrylic medium. The carbon and mars are Golden tube paints.It incorporates really easily into the acrylic and makes a very dense, matte paint. Makes sense, since it's essentially ultra fine ground pigmented plastic. Will have to do lightfastness...

    light gray and pure graphite. The gray was supposed to be white, but eh. The chalk seems to condition it. Trying to roll the pure graphite one was hard. It kept cracking even when very moist. Hopefully it holds together enough.
