Description

Flake white hue is an excellent unleaded alternative to the classic "Cremnitz white”.
Instead of the poisonous pigment lead white, it contains a combination of the titanium white and zinc white pigments grinded in a special clear and purified quality of safflower oil produced from the seeds of safflowers.
Flake white has a light warm white colour shade.
Its opacity and tint reducing power is less than those of titanium white.
Flake white hue will increase the drying time and durability of the colour layer.
Oil colours mixed with flake white hue get also a buttery and smooth consistency.

ABOUT SCHMINCKE
Schmincke began at the end of the 19th Century, when the colour chemists Josef Horadam and Hermann Schmincke saw an opportunity to provide the artists of the day with a truly superior artists oil, and so set out to Italy where traditional studio painting was still taught, in search of the nearly forgotten resin oil formulations.
In 1881, at the Academy of Fine Art in Florence, they secured the precision formulations of the Professor Cesare Mussini, a guardian of the old masters techniques, and on these formulations, the two founded their manufacturing establishment under the name H.Schmincke and Co.

In subsequent years, artists’ colours to suit all techniques were introduced, such as Josef Horadam’s patent watercolours of 1892. Through the entire 20th century, every generation of owner has lead the company to its current position as one of the worlds leading manufacturers of finest artists’ colour.
