Description

Rublev Colours Verditer Blue is a historic blue watercolor that is semi-transparent and moderately staining. Verditer Blue is artificial basic copper carbonate, which was popular in distemper and water-based paint during the 17th to 19th centuries. Start off with a deep azure and watch how this slightly granulating paint travels quickly in water. Fade the wash to the color of cornflowers for surprising effects. Dilute it to the palest sky blue.

Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, at top, mixed with an equal amount of water and brushed out toward the bottom. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the watercolor 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.
