Underpainting Lead White - 50ml


In order to comply with UK REACH regulations please contact us before purchasing this item, thank you!

Perfect for an initial underpainting, works well with an earth like Raw Umber, for a tonal underpainting, it will dry fast you maybe have an hour before it is dry, unusual for us oil painters! It is a mixed white with lead white, titanium white and calcite ground in alkyd to make a brilliant, opaque white that is smooth, dries very quickly to a matte surface.
The image of the test panel shows the effects of Oleoresgel, Lead White #1, Underpainting Lead White and Underpainting Transparent Base in mixtures with four oil colors: Maya Blue, Ultramarine Blue (Green Shade), Ercolano Red and Italian Green Umber.

Great for traditional techniques!

While many use quick drying acrylic paint as an underpainting white I tend to prefer a more traditional approach. This underpainting white is perfect for the job, it handles nicely and dries quickly. Perfectly packaged, and promptly posted I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
