Rublev Colours Oil Colors are based on single, natural mineral and historical pigments that give Old Masters-like painting effects in oil. This series features such exotic colors as natural ultramarine (lapis lazuli), azurite, malachite, among many others. The paint is handcrafted and packed in 50 ml tubes—giving you 33% more color than typical 37 ml tubes.

Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, straight from the tube, on the left, and mixed with an equal amount of titanium 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 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.
