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.
The bright yet rich warmth of our Cadmium Yellow Light is only possible because it was mixed by hand, like all of our colors, from a genuine, chemically pure, single pigmented Cadmium Yellow, then carefully milled in a very small batch and each and every tube filled and labeled by hand.
Full strength, with excellent opacity, sumptuous in consistency, responsive in mixing capacity - no wonder this gorgeous yellow with it’s captivating warmth was a favorite of Monet!
