The only white pigment that performed properly in oil paint (the king of paints in the past) was derived from lead. The sheets of lead were stacked in a pit of dung and the resulting white deposit that formed after a month was taken of in flakes, hence the name ‘flake white’. Suspended in linseed oil it took on a slightly yellow/grey cast and that is the universally useful hue we have mixed up.
"I just wanted to say what a pleasure it is using your material, especially the eggshell which is a lovely paint to work with."
