The blue used on Chinese vases and perfect for blue skies, blues in oil paint seem blessed with some very beautiful hues and this is one of the best.
Introduced at about the same time as ultramarine, Cobalt Aluminate is a synthetic inorganic spinel (i.e. a very high technology metal compound). It is a more greenish blue than ultramarine, with a heavier, more mineral appearance, when straight from the tube. The hues formed from it are correspondingly heavier and greyer, however it has a certain shade which the cheaper ultramarine simply cannot match.
A stunning, versatile colour.
Very Fast Drying. Semi-Opaque. Excellent Lightfastness. Average Oil Content.
Out of all the blues it’s the one for me l do use others but I find it excellent for landscape painting.
It's cobalt blue for sure!
Bought as a present for my Dad , his favourite paint. Superb quality..Exceptional service
