Akademie Oil color
Four white shades for all requirements in diverse painting techniques
AKADEMIE® oil is a ?ne artists’ oil colour range from Schmincke which has been extended to 48 – new formulated – brilliant and very lightfast colours. One of the main features are the four different white shades to cover all requirements in diverse painting techniques.
In order to give you more information about the use of this variety of white shades, we have summarized details about the use and the differences.
Zinc white (41 100), 60 and 200 ml
Zinc white is a classic, semi-opaque and pure white with medium lightening properties. Is suits well for lightening coloured shades as the character of each shade changes only slightly – depending on the quantity added.
Titanium white (41 102), 60 and 200 ml
Titanium white is a highly opaque, bright and pure white with high lightening properties. When lightening coloured shades, the original colour character will be effected. Titanium white therefore suits better for obtaining opaque pastel-coloured shades.
Mixing white (41 104), 60 and 200 ml
Mixing white is a semi-opaque, warm white with reduced lightening properties. It suits very well for lightening coloured shades in a very soft way as the character of each original shade remains nearly unchanged.
Underpainting white ( 41 106), 60 ml
Underpainting white is a semi-opaque white which has been formulated with linseed oil. Its special drying properties (fast drying !) makes this white perfectly suited for underpainting artworks as it reduces the danger of crackling effects in the coloured shades applied on the white layer. Due to the high amount of linseed oils contained, underpainting white slightly tends to yellow. If pure whites for painting or mixing are required, we recommend to choose among titanium, mixing or zinc white.
