Glass colours
The ephemeral colour of transparency. Painting on glass is one of the oldest and most magical forms of illusion, of playing with light and colours. Today you achieve this with colours created to modernize the ancient art of the master glassblowers and stained-glass makers who, from the Middle Ages to the present day, created works of timeless beauty on the most fragile of supports. Thirty transparent, solvent-based colours ensuring stability to the light and adaptability to changes in temperature. Twelve water-based relief colours, soft, workable, fast-drying.
27 colours, 3 medium 60 ml

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
