A unique mixing white as far as I know, this is a combination of three white pigments created to reduce some of pure Titanium white's less desirable qualities.
You can tell this is made by a practicising painter as it is designed as a solution to a problem found in the painting process.
Primarily Titanium white, there is also some Zinc to reduce the tendency to produce chalky mixes and some Barite to take the coldness off and slightly warm the paint.
This paint is ground in French Walnut oil to provide maximum clarity and less tendency to yellow over time.
In handling it is looser and silkier than other whites and doesn't have the 'thickness' of a standard Titanium white, I like this very much.

I love this new (to me) range of paint. I'm reviewing Blanc No. 1 but I would give the earth colours and the Ultramarine blue that I've used five stars also. Great depth of colour and a wonderful, soft butter consistency. These are not instead of my usual Rublev or Michael Harding paints but as well as. I seem to be collecting an array of different whites as they all work for me in very different ways. This new addition is already very useful.
