Vasari still carefully handcraft their colours in small amounts and even fill every tube by hand. Their traditional methods of paintmaking ensure the purity of colour and lush consistency, enabling them to impart the secret of the Old Masters to the modern day painter. Working with only the best oil and the finest authentic pigments, they refuse to dull, stiffen, or weaken colours with fillers such as chalk or wax.
Extra deep, opaque, and richly maroon, this Mars colour is the deepest and most blue.
An intensely pigmented red Synthetic Iron Oxide, that’s a purplish red brown, the Caput Mortuum mixes cleanly to deepen tones or create distinctive dark neutrals with its cool green complements.
Makes soft bluish grays, with enough white, and is often used to colour a white ground because of its cool, neutral undertone.
