Glycerine

[Plant based glycerine, pre-dispersed coal-tar pigments, pine ink on traditional gesso on 640gsm archival paper]

 

First isolated in late 1700s, glycerine, also known as sweet water, was traditionally made from plant materials, and added to watercolours to replace honey and alleviate brittleness. Nowadays it is still added to watercolours but it is mostly made from a meat industry by-product or synthetised from petroleum, propylene and chlorine.
