Description

Flemish White has a creamy, long consistency that makes it excellent in pure highlights composed primarily of lead sulfate.

class="mst-lazy">

Thomas Salter in his Field's Chromatography of 1869 identified Flemish white as lead sulfate (page 67). In Practical Treatise on Painting in Oil-Colours of 1795, "white precipitate of lead," which was sulfate of lead, was sold under the name "Flemish white." Prior to the nineteenth century, Flemish white was lead white made in Flanders. After that time it was a precipitated lead sulfate, which derives from basic lead sulfate. We recreated Flemish White of the nineteenth century, which was actually a mixture of pigments consisting of lead sulfate, lead white (basic lead carbonate)) and magnesia (magnesium carbonate). In place of magnesium carbonate we substituted talc (magnesium silicate) because it has much less water sensitivity than magnesia.

Notes

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.

All images of color swatches on this website 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.

Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.

Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" 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 is scraped to show undertones.
