The first and only algae derived oil paint on the planet!
Spirulina the superfood beloved of celebrities and health afficionados also has an unbelievable depth of colour and varies from deep greens to deep blues. A picture of it in the wild is opposite.
In masstone this paint is a dark, rich blue. It is pretty transparent and once spread thinly with a palette knife you see this aspect.
In hue it is not totally disimilar to Cerulean blue, a true blue but leaning visibly towards green.
It is a gentle tinter and not much white is needed before it overwhelmed, however adding white with caution produces really beautiful cool blue tints, delicate and in harmony with the other natural colours in this range.
The spirulina is collected by hand and processed sustainably in small quantites.
