Rublev Colours Lead-Tin Yellow Light (Type I) is an opaque lemon yellow, fine grained and medium tinting strength. Our lead-tin yellow is made according to historical recipes.
Although lead-tin yellow frequently occurs in European painting before the eighteenth century, it is not mentioned in older literature on painting techniques. It has been identified in Rembrandt's work such as Belshazzar's Feast (1636/1638). It is called massicot in northern European manuscripts, but identified as giallolino or giallorino in Italian manuscripts, as noted by Merrifield.
Lead-tin yellow has not been rated for lightfastness by the ASTM, but independent studies have shown that it is permanent in most vehicles and can be used with all other pigments without alteration.
Rublev Colours Artists' Oils: Lead-Tin Yellow Light (Type I)
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 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.
Note: Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artists Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.
