White Lead - Natural Paint Colour | Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

White Lead

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."
