    Black & White, Ochre, special brushes

    Hello, please knows somebody how and where I can find pure black, e.g. ivory black, Paynes grey, neutral ink, grey shades and white. Of. course, white is to reach by erasing. Grey shades by mixing or thin layers of black, darkblue etc. it depends. And black until certain grades by mixing.
    Pure black is only necessary for e. g. outlining, it usually must be mixed up each shade for which effect it is needed.
    Sure at least I figure it out, put it into the color-sampler. But it is not really satisfying for my opinion.
    Also I find it difficult to mix the very important colour of ochre, especially gold-ochre. ( not with metallic effect, in no case)
    Has somebody kinds of formulae for me?
    Or can I buy additional colour wheels and more tools, brushes like fine sword-tracer. sword-brushes, cat-tongues?
    By the way, I use all possible tools, now matter which colour type my picture is claimed to be. Mostly I would declare it as mixed technique
    The most important is the result. Thanks for every useful tip. LaFemmeDuLac
    p.s. I already set this thread into the item: Technique - or so.
    But now I will sift through this and hope I will catch it.
    I am just struggling with a picture just because of it. And my mind is full of ideas....
