So happy to know that somewhere in the UK sells these products!! Thank you!
Calcite, was used by Velazquez and Chardin, two of my absolute favourite painters. This medium adds both body and transparency to the paint, without losing chroma. There is just enough white in it to tint a Ultramarine or Magenta. Calcite medium tends to dry matt. I dislike adding additional mediums to oil paint, but this one does extend the range of my palette. Formerly, I used barite, but I think calcite is subtler.
This is wonderful, as is everything sold by Supreme Paint. Five stars from beginning to end. Thank you!
Love both, a paint and the way company dealing with that.
I have ordered several times via the Supreme paint company and have never been disappointed. The Spinel Yellow is also a very special color, these colours have true character.
Great Distributer, great Service, great paint !
Very fast shipping, very well package. Thank you James.
Very interesting and unique paint! Looking at a portion of it you see (what looks like) these nifty vibrating particles popping in and out of solution. Everything James said above is accurate.
A modern use I found for it is outdoor oil sketching. Indicate sunlight, without a lot of mixing or thinners? You can do that with this paint straight out of the tube. Color varies depending on pressure applied - just fascinating! I also found this paint is great for harmonizing the cadmium colors with nature. I wouldn't use it on a work for sale due to fading concerns, however Gamboge certainly has a place in my studies, sketches, and mastercopies!
even in quarantine the paints i order came within 2-4 days first class signed for, very good delivery times and good selection of paints
Fabulous products - only the best
Superb and exquisite service.
If only I could wrap my Xmas presents as beautifully.
A pleasure to buy. A delight to receive.
Have raved to all my mates.
I love working with these pieces. The nearest to these indigo pieces is the Conté sticks but the pigment is so high in the indigo pieces that I love to just work with the blue.
Lovely colour of paint arrived quickly. Good quality oil paint.
Just taken my delivery of M Harding pain out of COROVID19 quarantine - neatly and well packaged ensured that the tubes arrived in perfect condition - looking forward to using them, many thanks guys!
Beautiful shade of pink, love it
Firstly I have to say what great service I had from this company. They were very quick and efficient at sending out my order which was well packed in recyclable packaging (which I keep for various uses). I have not used their paints before so I have only ordered one colour, manganese blue, and I have to say it is fabulous not just the colour but the consistency which flows so well without using a medium but likewise it is wonderful for glazing. I love blues and this has become my favourite. Thank you James. I would certainly buy again from this company.
Somewhere between saw sienna nf yellow pchre
This is the finest and nicest seller of fine oil paints that I have ever encountered. I submit the highest recommendations. Delivery was prompt and the packaging second to none. You can order with confidence to continental Europe. Thank you.
versatile paint, good thickness, works well with white and thin, thick is good as a base colour
Beautiful and vibrant
Beautifully packaged and great service. Thank you
A paint of great subtlety, not strictly a white more like a cool beige. It has handling qualities similar to Calcite, thick in body yet semi- translucent. It modulates other colours. I have found it both useful in landscape and in portrait painting, where it lends a soft, cool transition in shadows.Not an essential pigment, but interesting none the less.
Good in conjunction with the rose one
Very impressed by the packaging and personal touch of confirmation email. I will definitely order from you again.
I purchased this to re adhere lenses and prisms within historic optical instruments. This product appears to be superb. I will let you know how it’s refractive index is holding up one 80 years or so.
