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.
Vasari's own discovery of actual green earth, found in the majestic splendor of the American West and ground to specification for Vasari to handcraft into authentic Terre Verte!
Permanent and very transparent, this mineral pigment is a delicate soft green, very cool, almost neutral in tone.
Extremely subtle in mixing, its granular texture and sparkle attests to its true earth origins.
A very old, ancient color. Genuine green earth has been utilized by artists throughout the world, since the earliest centuries, for cave paintings, wall paintings and pottery and, more recently, in medieval figurative works to depict the shadows in underpaintings.
