Italian Natural Earth Colours. The harmonyand warmth of Italian earth tones. These colours derive from the ancient pigments always used to create the colours characteristic of the various Italian schools of painting. The colours of Roman villas, of Venetian palaces, of the towns of Umbria and Tuscany. The grain size of the pigment is larger than in traditional oil colours. The paste is thicker, the appearance more opaque for a different refraction of the light. These colours can be mixed with any oil paint devoid of organically synthesized colourants.

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.
