Foundation White (No. 225)

£13.70£518.79 tax incl.


Inorganic – Many years ago I was asked by a well-known British artist to create a very lean, robust, fast-drying white that did not rely on extenders and siccative for its qualities. Hence, I made this 50/50 blend of Titanium and Lead Whites ground with linseed oil which combines a measure of the virtues of each. This can be applied to either acrylic or glue sized canvases. Under normal conditions Foundation White can be painted on within 4-5 days. Thin slightly with turpentine if you find it too dense to brush out.
