Crystal White Oil Paint

The finely powdered glass gives this white a novel refractive appearance in mixtures with other colors. We've created this color for artists today without stabilizers (e.g. stearates, waxes, etc.) or fillers characteristic of modern whites. Finely ground crystal glass (1.51) has a refractive index similar to oil (1.48), making it transparent and hence well suited for mixing with other colors. Use it to make pale tints of colors without overpowering them.

Notes

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.

All images of color swatches on this website are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors, the results you get may vary.

Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.

Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
