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.

No longer produced, this genuine transparent, icy blue is without equal.

After a long search, Vasari were able to obtain enough pigment for several batches.

Introduced in the mid 1930’s, the Barium Manganate pigment was manufactured from the mined ore for only about 50 years. Even so, true Manganese Blue gained a devoted following among painters, and was highly prized for its intense beauty and brightness.
