PW4. Slow Drying. Slightly Transparent. Lightfastness Excellent. Very Low Oil Content, Average Tint power. Non-toxic

Perhaps the most under-appreciated of the Whites, Zinc Oxide was first used in 18th century France, and its early misuse as a canvas primer seems to have frightened artists away from examining its unique qualities. It has a cool transparency and a subtle power enabling one to create slightly hued mixes which retain their chromatic intensity and brightness, unlike those made by the blasting strength of the Titanium Whites. The softness of its surface when dry is not a disadvantage when it is used in this way, as the better drying paints will strengthen the mix.
