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.
Instead of less expensive transparent yellows that are often warmed up with earth reds, they handcraft their Indian Yellow from a superior, single warm transparent modern pigment, Isoindoline, that offers absolute permanence, excellent mixing strength and lightfastness.
Unlike the historic version of this fabled colour, their intensely pigmented Indian Yellow will not fade and can be used for glazing or to hold the value of dark mixtures, facilitating the mixing of deep greens or oranges, while adding a rich warmth.
Reveal its chromatic intensity with clean mixing Titanium-Zinc White or even the dense but bright Nickel Lemon, both adding a rich opacity as they cool the fiery warmth of this extra rich golden yellow.
