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.

One of the first man-made pigments in use throughout the ancient world, this true Antimony Yellow was invented to colour and embellish glass, tiles, and even the bricks of royalty.

A principal colour on the palettes of painters from the 1700’s until the 1850’s, when the new Chrome and Cadmium yellows were introduced and eventually gained favor.

Still coveted for its soft glowing light and subtle mixing qualities, this classic pale Naples is close to but brighter than Dutch Yellow while being as warm and opaque as the Cadmium Yellow Light, yet less harsh.

Contains lead and is not for use by children.
