Peach Black

or Almond Black, made by burning the stones of fruits, the shell of the

cocoa-nut, &c., is a violet-black, once much used by Parisian artists.

Bouvier believes it to be a good black, but at the same time sensibly

asks, of what use is it to have a black of this cast, which can always

be given by lake, without diminishing but rather increasing the

intensity of the black it may be mixed with.
