Often people overlook GOLDEN Micaceous Iron Oxide, because it is so dark. It is not officially a ground, but works beautifully as one. The Micaceous Iron Oxide is a deep black color, has a very gritty surface and a sparkle or glint to the surface. The grit is perfect for pastels or oil pastels. For a ground, layer it on thickly or scrap it down with the edge of the palette knife allowing the color of the board to show through.
