Beautiful and intense Indigo ...will go a long way!
Good handling too.
This is my second purchase, Ceruse White and Italian Raw Umber Green.
These colours are a real pleasure to use and the mixing results are great.
Wonderful paint that will reward you with outstanding results.
I first became aware of Velazquez’ use of calcite in in his paintings in 1999 after reading the exceptional book “Velazquez the technique of genius.” by Jonathan Brown & Carmen Garrido, Yale University Press 1998 .
I experimented with making my own versions with indifferent results and chanced upon this ready-made vehicle [Rublev Velazquez Medium] a few weeks ago when again trawling the net for a source of calcite.
I bought a 237ml tin from James at The Supreme Paint Company and was so impressed with its qualities that I bought a second one.
Service from The Supreme Paint Company has been exemplary the tins arriving well packaged and in good order the next working day postage free.
If you suffer from any lung diseases/conditions then this alternative to distilled turps is excellent and works just as well. Highly recommended.
A beautiful burnt sienna, it has a strong tint that mixed with flake white or titanium white produces beautiful skin tones. Great service as always from James.
Currently using this for some grisaille work. A lovely texture to work with and easily provides me with every value I need using just a small amount. Wonderful.
Wonderful products on this site. Wish I could afford them all but what I got have been a gem to work with.
But I must commend this online shop also for the prompt delivery and packaging. It felt like all my Xmases had come at once. Thank you.
I give it 5 stars for the quality, and the companys stunning prudukt, though the color doesent match the Internet, but work fine for me.
Anyone who is used to very smooth buttery paint is in for a surprise when they try this. It's a thick dark earthy green that's quite gritty. Personally I like it as it gives you an alternative type of paint which is very interesting to use. I've used it mixed with Chrome yellow and Oleogel to create some interesting backgrounds for some of my Abstract pieces. Also good to use paint where the pigment has been sourced in the UK.
Obviously with this being the same 1950's pigment as the Burnt Sienna it is going to have a high chroma & look brighter than other raw Sienna's. As with the Burnt Sienna it would be very wise to buy a tube whilst still available, gorgeous paint & highly recommended.
This is definitely the highest chroma burnt Sienna I've used and this is obvious as soon as you start to use it. Used in mass tone, as a glaze or in a mix the quality is unsurpassed. I'm very pleased I bought some of this rare paint, I really wouldn't want to be without it now I've used it & highly recommend it. Thanks to WS & James here at Supreme.
Another wonderful Earth from the masters Natural Pigments! I wouldn't say this hue is a must on the palette but once you've tried & used the paint then the quality becomes obvious. For anyone who loves using Earth colours then this is well worth a try, highly recommended.
I've bought Natural Pigments' powdered pigments for years whilst living in New York (first-rate) and thus knew of their other products via their website. The oil paint is relatively new to me and this Italian Burnt Siena is wonderful. Blending it with their Lead White (used with the utmost care, of course) has led me to pastures new as far as delicate flesh tones are concerned
Arrived quickly. Lovely to use medium.

Good quality oilpaint.
I have tried many, many whites over the years to try to mimic flake white, especially the semitransparent properties in the half lights. This paint is different because a titanium base is not used. If a titanium base is used then the mix all too easily goes 'chalky' ie too cool, too opaque and the 'old master' look is ruined. THIS PAINT IS DIFFERENT. a)it is not overpowering in a mix, b) It dries a fast as flake white c) Its price is the same as titanium and not astronomical like flake white is today and d) It's non-toxic so I can sand back layers without worrying about inhaling that lead dust. That was always the killer for me - its ok not trying to injest flake white, but you should never sand it or you risk inhaling the dust in to your lungs. This paint is the best alternative, but there is one aside - it doesn't quite reach the very top value of white sometimes required very minimally in a painting e.g the last highlights etc. For that I have a separate pile of Winsor and Newton Griffin Alkyd fast drying white that I use just to tint those top notes. Job done.
nice color you can take it instead of vermillion red. i give 5 stars to supreme paint.
