Flake 1C = standard creamy white w alumina stearite;
Flake 2s = Denser consistency; add thix-o-gel for even thicker;
Flake+Mica = Very creamy, refractive, produces a nacreous look; most popular white;
Flake+glass - soft melted wax appearance like the white Rembrandt used for impasto; extend with leaded glass medium; Flake+blanc fixe = Very loose, sticky, stringy, moves easily, stay put for light impasto;
Transparent Flake w Calcite = Spanish white like Valasquez used for translucent effects;
Flake+titanium= Good bodied white for coverage/reducing;
Super Pearl Flake - Very lush creamy white w/ex-high refractive qualities;
Flake Primer - with mica but leaner, flexible, w linseed oil - Pt. $65.
Ask about old world Flemish White.
Naples Yellow = warm, earthy pale yellow, opaque w good body, cont. lead.
Lead Tin Yellow - lighter than N.Y., used by Vermeer, Velazquez, Rembrandt, refractive quality.
Vermillion genuine- some love this color, but it's not my favorite Red and it's not the most brilliant of all reds- Historical Red, brilliant, doesn't gray out, totally permanent.
Rose Madder - Historical beautiful warm translucent rose red, glows internally like no other; Permanent as all Madders.
Florentine lake - a cool transparent burgundy red, a classic for glazing, permanent(like English red); (I am told to avoid all lakes as fugitives)
Frangelico Blue - the truest, brightest of all blues, rich chroma, great for skies, cobalt base-calcined formula;
Alger Blue - a beautiful Azur blue with a greenish cast, clean+glowing undertone;
Wellington blue - missing blue in the modern palette, assimilates asurite in its full purity like Lapis Lazuli with flake white; (must be very light)
Egyptian Blue, Egyptian Violet - reconstructed pigments, brilliant dark transparent reddish blue, with blue violet cast, doesn't gray out.
Smalt Blue - historical blue pigment with a very delicate tonality, a purplish blue, lightfast, high cobalt content;
Transparent Blue Oxide( I just love the word "Oxide"! They should put it in a magic spell-casting book!) A low keyed grayed blue, good for underpainting and glazing.
Blue Ochre - one of my favorite colors - historically used in the 13th century for painting church facades, a cool gray color with a subtle blue green cast!!! A must - have!
Ceret Green (Ceret green...are there poets around? Doesn't that sound like music to your ears?) A soft dark gray green cobalt, no blue or yellow tones, opaque, strong. (Sounds like Davy's Gray, anyone?)
Blue-green Oxide - a wonderful dark blue-green unlike any other green. Examples would be in Titans "the sacrifice of Isaac", many of Dalroix's rich greens. Possibly the best "tube green" of all. (This sounds promising, but I still don't find greens out of the tube any good; you will have to mix them on your own and breathe life into them...)
Sinopia (Sinopia sounds dreamy! I would name my boat Sinopia.) An ancient Roman Earth, transparent cold red, when white is added it produces a pinkish grayed mauve for mid-range flesh colors. (Sounds like Burnt Sienna)
Terra Rosa - a transparent Orange earth with an internal glow. A good compliment to Sinopia.
Bristol Yellow -Missing Yellow in the modern palette, translucent light yellow, very delicate tonality, mixes well, doesn't overpower.
Transparent Sepia - a cold blackish brown, good for glazing and underpainting, with white it has a brown-mauve cast.
Cadmium Brown Dk. - a very dark opaque brown, almost black, with white it becomes grayish.
Adobe - Adobe is made from Flake white, lean tin yellow, raw umber. Great neutral tint.
