Product description


Series 5

Rublev Colours Lead White #2 ground in filtered, pale walnut oil is an opaque white that is soft and slightly ropey. Lead White #2 is a brighter white than our first lead white, because of the paler walnut oil.

Our lead white is made with pale walnut oil and basic lead carbonate (made according to modern processes) without stearates or fillers to alter the characteristics of the pigment. As a result you get higher pigment volume concentration (PVC) than other brands of lead white (flake white) -- as high as 45%. This means most brands of flake white do not weigh nearly as much as Rublev Colours 50 ml tube. Yet, Rublev Colours Lead White is not stiff and mixes well with all other oil colors.

Lead white is the most common white found on the old masters' palette. Lead pigments have been made artificially since Antiquity, although health concerns of lead poisoning has greatly diminished its role in paint today.

Rublev Colours Lead White #2 Artists Oil

Drawdown Note: The scan of the "drawdown" (left) contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns are scraped to show undertones.

Swatch Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, straight from the tube, on the left, and mixed with an equal amount of white on the right. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
