Oil - Artisti

Traditional oil colours
Tradition. The original formula handed down through generations exactly as it had been conceived. Oil plus pigment, period. Faithfully carrying through time the elements required by master painters united in seeking fine execution and quality mediums. Historic tonalities, unattainable mixtures, tints now impossible to find whose roots are in the Italian painting that the whole world admires and extols. Like a force abiding by transcendent principles, flowing through the ages. Artisti still bears the label of the A series that Gianni Maimeri designed in 1923. One hundred and two colours, in a balanced division. Five differently toned whites. Seventeen natural earth tones. Three chrome yellows. No colours with low light resistance. No substance considered harmful is used.
102 colours 20 ml, 60 ml. White 200 ml, 500 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.
