Professional Artists' Oil Painting Powder Pigment Set: Over 6 Kgs! This is a rare opportunity to acquire a. Cornelissen & Son in London, these are examples of some of the richest, pure colors obtainable in the world - period. While the main colors gathered here are the "inorganic synthetic" pigments; e. Cadmium yellows and reds, cobalt blues, viridian green, ultramarine, the wonderful "Milori LUX" variety of genuine Prussian blue offered by Kremer, and the iron oxide colors; there is also a fine assortment of "organic manufactured" coal tar dye-based colors like quinacridone magenta, indanthrone, and of course the phthalos.There is also a small representation of the traditional, classical colors used in the past such as genuine mercuric sulphide vermillion Contains Mercury!! , true Naples Yellow Contains Lead and Antimony! And yes, there is a small amount of really good quality Lapis Ultramarine. The highlight feature of this collection undoubtedly though is the inclusion of THREE, 100 gram-each, UNOPENED tins of Manganese Blue from L. Cornelissen & Sons obtained before it became absolutely. To complicate matters, Manganese Blue has long been discontinued by its chemical manufacturers due to its high toxicity, and the advent of the rather visually overpowering phthalo blue which has more or less replaced it on artists' palettes. This means that only the quantities of what Manganese that remain from past production are what is available today. To my knowledge, the only other available, obtainable supply of Manganese Blue is held by Old Holland, but I will assure you that you have not worked with the color blue until you've worked with the Cornelissen product. It's hue is rather similar to Cobalt Cerulean, but where the Cobalt color gets "smeary" and kind of "clay-like", rendering it semi-opaque in a less-than-pleasing way - the Manganese Cerulean is just brilliantly clean and clear! This makes it irreplaceable as a glazing color in this light-blue hue part of the spectrum. And while Phthalo blue is also equally suited to glazing, it is nearly impossible to hold back with the degree of restraint needed to get a light blue in a way that does not completely overpower everything around it (white can't be mixed in when trying to achieve complete translucency). 300 grams of this treasure translates into a fair abundance of paint-making heaven, or it could simply be saved unopened in your collection. To be clear about the terminology: there is nothing "organic" about these products in the sense meant in the organic food industry; make no mistake - many of these are highly toxic colors. Additional to the colors is 750gr worth of two varieties of "filler" pigments; Calcium Carbonate in powder form, and Italian Marble Dust (another form of calcium carbonate), both useful for making homemade rabbit skin glue gesso. There are also two liters of Shellsol solvent included. Shellsol is an immaculately pure volatile chemical solvent, slippery enough to thin even the gooiest alkyd paint.
It is eminently suitable to "wet" stubborn organic manufactured pigments of minute particle size to facilitate grinding them into oil, and evaporates much quicker than other wetting agents which greatly reduces grinding time. This product is no joke though, it smells very much like gasoline and needs freely-flowing adequate ventilation or you may get dizzy using it. It is super-well packaged though for long term storage, and will keep many years remaining in perfectly usable condition.The solvent is an amazing product, is rather expensive, and if handled safely and responsibly will assuredly help your pictures look their best, and will definitely aid you in the process of grinding difficult pigments. Additionally, you also get three fine reference books about oil painting technique (useful stuff by the authors, and annoying stuff in the margins written by Your's Truly), and a very fine glass muller. And the piece of sandblasted glass. That I used to use to grind my paints on, ground spotlessly clean for your new adventures in paintmaking! While these pigments are "used" in one sense, they are really the pristine, unused portion of the new supplies I had been working from. I take the utmost care of my art supplies, and these pigments have been no exception. Great care has been taken to keep them from being contaminated in any way by any foreign matter; one precaution as an example being the immediate transferral from Kremer's weird plastic pigment bags to the lovely pigment jars pictured here for storage. Original packaging from Cornelissen has been left as-is. Finally, I have included 25-30ml of a really fine sample of "Strasbourg Turpentine". This is a balsam of the highest designation of quality, and is classified as an oleo-resin. Using it correctly, and sparingly in combination with dammar or mastic as additions to the linseed can result in the famed "jewel-like" tones, such as the ones achieved by Schmincke with another, lesser-quality balsam which they use in the binder in their oil paint line. This sample is a bit aged, but its semi-crystalized state can easily be remedied by a warm water bath, and this sample passes the nose-test with flying colors! It smells just as it should and is in excellent shape for all its purposes. This product too is nearly impossible to find anymore, and the included amount should be sufficient for at least one medium sized painting to one medium-large one, depending on how you work.
The oleo-resin could be added into a big working batch of binder solution to grind the paints into directly, or it could be mixed into a batch of enough medium to last the entire painting's working period; or a little of both, or however you'd like to use it! There is enough pigment here to grind approximately 100 40-60ml tubes of paint, or possibly quite a bit more!This is truly a very conservative estimate, since all the organic manufactured pigments, the Prussian blue, as well as the finely ground translucent iron oxide pigments I have here, require much less pigment per tube than their organic manufactured counterparts. Grinding one's own paint, as you probably know, is one of the best values in the art supply world, and is a great way to really gain and maintain an understanding of the "bones" of painting. I hope you enjoy these pigments as much as I have. High-key is and always has been my color palette, but there are some delicate earths in the mix here for sure. A little something for everyone, this collection is sure to serve you for a good many years.
Lightfastness ratings were my highest priority in all choices, so you may rely on the permanence of these colors for the decades to come. Clarity of tone in the opaque colors and truest translucency in the glaze colors were other high priorities, so you can expect some really electric results. You will have gotten all this stuff for a. Toxicity is rarely labeled onto individual containers. You should work as though all these colors are extremely toxic until you determine.How safe or toxic they are for yourself from the chemical data safety sheets posted on the internet corresponding to the pigments' product numbers I printed on all the jars' labels. Every single label is marked this way with the colors' specific order number, and these product numbers have been verified as accurate. Only two pigments are in question, are clearly marked as such, and are both earth colors which are non-toxic.
