Lead-Tin Yellow Oil Paint
Rublev Colours Lead-Tin Yellow (Type I) is a semi-opaque lemon yellow, fine grained and medium tinting strength. Our lead-tin yellow is made according to historical recipes. Although lead-tin yellow frequently occurs in European painting before the eighteenth century, it is not mentioned in older literature on painting techniques. It has been identified in Rembrandt's work such as Belshazzar's Feast (1636/1638). It is called massicot in northern European manuscripts, but identified as giallolino or giallorino in Italian manuscripts, as noted by Merrifield. Lead-tin yellow has not been rated for lightfastness by the ASTM, but independent studies have shown that it is permanent in most vehicles and can be used with all other pigments without alteration.

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 in this web site 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 are scraped to show undertones.
