Genuine Lapis Lazuli - 'Mantegna' - 40ml


The classic Lapis hue, straight out of a Renaissance painting.

In masstone, a deep blue, not quite as rich as the Tiziano shade, just off the middle of the blue spectrum leaning slightly green.

In tints with white, it stands up very well and provides a wide range of soft, muted, blues, the subtlety of which couldn't be achieved with any other pigment.

It seems slightly more transparent than the other varieties and also has the slight grittiness in feel like the others, the pigment size is deliberately left slightly larger in order to maximize the chroma.

Beautiful Lapis paint

A lighter shade lapis, one strongly associated with the light Renaissance blue. This paint is lovely to work in glazes. It adds depth and chroma to the final layers. Highly recommend.

Peter Burns

Really good Lapis shade & good density in granular content. It’s lovely & used sparingly can be used to great effect. (My favourite lapis is still the Michael Harding but this is also very good)

Arne Wellmann
Truly amazing unique paint

As always the supreme paint company has delivered exactly what was promised. The descibtive text to this paint also fits the bill. 100% best service by James and the makers of that paint.
